Last week, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in the Biden Education Department began its “comprehensive review” of Title IX, the federal law that bans sex discrimination at schools receiving federal funds but is now used mostly to address sexual misconduct on campus.

This is widely seen as the first step to roll back due process gains made under President Trump, embodied in a new regulation, which took effect last August. That rule requires supportive measures for those claiming sexual misconduct but also mandates basic due process protections for those accused, such as the presumption of innocence and the right to see all evidence.

To the disgust of many, this basic fairness was often lacking on America’s college campuses before the rule because of pressure on schools to “get tough on sexual assault” — said to be an epidemic — which too often meant railroading accused male students or staff.

Horror stories now abound of Title IX respondents not even knowing what they were accused of, being escorted off school grounds based on a mere allegation, or having their photo appear across campus “like a mug shot” as if they were criminal fugitives, and all before the accused could even answer charges. “I was immediately deemed guilty. Done,” remembers Joseph Roberts, a Title IX victim at Savannah State University and former Navy man, now a law student.

The claims of an epidemic were always false, as they were derived from altered definitions of rape and are further belied by the higher number of female students at college when compared to their male counterparts, a trend that started as early as the 1970s and which would hardly happen if campuses were such an anti-woman crime zone.

The manufacturing of this contrived crisis started in the Obama years, led by none other than then-Vice President Joe Biden and Catherine Lhamon, a feminist ideologue lawyer who was then the OCR’s assistant secretary (a.k.a. “Title IX czar”). Luckily for Biden, he stands credibly accused of sexual misconduct, but not under Title IX.

Lhamon became the chief enforcer of the now-infamous “Dear Colleague Letter” of
