Perspective 3: Title IX in Court-Solutions To solve the problem of reverse discrimination you must look at the simple solutions that are possible. There are many solutions that we could to solve this problem, but I think there is only one solution that would work. The only solution that I think that would work is the idea of the male athlete and men’s sport teams organization should take, what they feel, their reverse discrimination against them to court and let the judicial branch decide if it should be called

A Game Changer: Title IX & Sports 8 reversed discrimination. If they win enough cases, then we should look into restructuring Title IX. Why I think we should do this first is this is the closest we have ever gotten to equality in the landscape of sports on any level. The saying is “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it”, and I feel that Title IX is not broken. Until they show the inevitable prove, then they can take it to court. I hope in twenty or so years that Title IX will solve itself and it will be equality all over the board. Which will never happen like how in economics perfect competition can never keep going and will eventually end. There are many so-called solutions that I feel will not work but are possible solutions in other’s eyes. There are a few solutions that I’ve seen writing and learning about the Title IX and sports topic. One of the solutions is that we should bring it back to Congress and restructure it. Which will probably take forever, and it might make it even worse. Maybe I’m just totally wrong, and what we are doing is failing are collegiate athletes right now and there is a better solution to equality to Title IX. Another solution is to delete Title IX altogether, which isn’t as highly thought of as the restructure solution. Instead of Title IX, we should just let the colleges take of their own problems and go back to before Title IX. Which when the male athlete to women athlete ratio was 5.3 to 1. That is a dramatic difference between the ratio from then to now. Which is why I think it shouldn’t be thought as a real solution. Any solution is better than this one! If anybody had an opposing view to my solution, which there is, they could say a few negative things about it. First off, they could say taking it to court could too long to see the results. To this I say, it would probably take a longer time in Congress and, as I stated above, the option to delete Title IX is not an option for me at least. That’s how Title IX started, they had to win some court cases to get Congress to look at it as a civil rights law in 1972 and then

Next, they might say the court might be bias to Title IX and its benefiters of its most recent and famous court case winners. They might use past court cases, which have been on the side of Title IX, as an outline for the future cases for this matter. Which will benefit Title IX and its supporters. To this I say, if there are actual, realistic,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
