  3. I think the excerpt from the "Declaration..." does not apply to Obergefell v Hodges. The case was not about women's rights.

    That said, Justice Kennedy's majority opinion makes no reference at all to Title IX. It does apply the Equal Protection clause of the 14th amendment and Due Process clause. So one of your answers is correct, the other is not. But, I have not read your text, so I have no idea what it contends. You can read Justice Kennedy's opinion for yourself here:
