Under Title IX, discrimination based on sex includes sexual harassment, sexual  assault, stalking, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual orientation and gender identity. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against individuals who make a complaint or participate in an investigation regarding an alleged Title IX violation.
