Title 9 protects students who are subject to gender-oriented bullying, cyberbullying or hazing, regardless of the students’ sex or sexual identity. LGBTQ students may also find themselves the victims of sexual harassment at school, and fortunately Title 9 protects those students. LGBTQ students should be treated equally no matter what, and these students just like any other, are entitled to a prompt complaint process, and entitled to be free from retaliation and a hostile work environment at school. As it relates to transgender students, Title 9 was clarified in 2016 when the Department of Education and Department of Justice opined that gender was defined by identity and not necessarily by the gender which was assigned at birth. While there have been some setbacks and restrictions that were enacted in the following years, Title 9 still protects transgender students as it relates to equal access issues at some, as well as their right to be protected from all forms of sexual harassment, hazing, bullying and cyberbullying.
