Last month, I wrote about the facts of the highly controversial G.G. v. Gloucester case which is scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court in the near future. On March 6, the Supreme Court sent the case back down to the Fourth Circuit in light of President Trump’s recent actions regarding transgender bathroom policy. Had the Court heard the case, a majority of Justices, not legislators or executive agents, would have set a major precedent on the topic of transgender bathroom usage. Judicial Review: Perennial Controversy The topic of judicial review, the ability for the Court to invalidate legislative and executive...Read More

On March 1, Brian Bensimon of The College Fix reported on an extremely bizarre controversy regarding Drake University. The small private university in Des Moines, Iowa was recently sued. The origins of this lawsuit, Doe v. Drake University, are nearly beyond belief. Drake University Violates Title IX? Several years ago, John Doe applied for admission into Drake University’s Class of 2016, and he got in. In the fall of 2015, Doe was accused of sexual assault by one of his fellow students. However, during the Title IX investigation that ensued, Doe “reported that he had been assaulted by the complainant during the night of...Read More
This past week, the ACLU publicized a brief for the respondent (Gavin Grimm) in the upcoming Supreme Court case G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. A mere cursory reading of each brief filed would display two vastly different perspectives on the role of Title IX in the educational world. Unlike many Supreme Court cases, this case should be very simple to decide. Over the coming weeks, we will break this case down, as this case’s implications are both extremely important and concerning. G.G. v. Gloucester Bathroom Dispute: G.G. is a 17-year-old at Gloucester High School. G.G. was born a female, yet,...Read More
Being from New England, there are many reasons to want Roger Goodell, the National Football League’s (NFL) commissioner, to be removed from his position of power. Unfortunately for the NFL, Goodell just recently granted everyone in America another reason to dislike his tenure as commissioner. Two weeks ago, Houston hosted Super Bowl LI, which brought in more than 111 million viewers and has been recorded as “the fifth most-watched TV broadcast in history.” A week after Texas’ record setting Super Bowl, the NFL threatened Texas that the Super Bowl could never be hosted within the state again. Why was this threat...Read More
The contemporary women’s movement for equal rights has some new faces in 2017. Previously a designated “champion of change” by the Obama White House, and a delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Linda Sarsour was one of the four national co-chairs of January’s Women’s March On Washington. A new champion for modern-day Feminism’s ever-more extreme platform, Sarsour’s beliefs embody much more than an average feminist’s political inclinations. Sarsour’s War on Women On March 8, 2011, Sarsour tweeted the following statement on her social media account: “Brigitte Gabriel= Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She’s asking 4 an a$$ whippin’. I wish I...Read More
