It seems these days one cannot open a newspaper (online or otherwise) without reading something about Title IX abuse. Title IX, originally instituted to prevent gender bias and discrimination in education (a noble goal) has become a hammer for schools to police and prosecute sexual activity among students (something schools are greatly unprepared to do). Students are routinely denied legal council and due process, all because of Title IX. What was originally intended to be a guide for diversity and equal rights has become a tool for extra-legal prosecution of consensual behavior and an arbitrator of free speech.
Title IX is hardly the only piece of legislation that has developed disastrous unintended consequences: The Community Reinvestment Act, passed to help ensure everyone can have a place to live and thriving communities (a noble goal), lead to The Great Recession. Civil Asset Forfeiture, designed to help the US Navy combat piracy, has become a greater source of legal robbery than robbery itself (often without conviction of a crime). Other examples are legion.
This is why, as a classical liberal and free market supporter, I often oppose government attempts to fix issues. Their actions, while nominally noble, can lead to highly repressive and disastrous consequences. I believe a good maxim when evaluating legislation is to consider how can such legislation be abused or lead to unintended consequences. In other words, its not what is written or intended, but what can be read and applied.
