19 historically women’s colleges have formal policies that admit at least some trans students
Agnes Scott College: admits “students who were assigned female at birth, as well as those who were assigned male or female at birth, but who now identify as female, transgender, agender, gender fluid or non-binary.”Alverno College: “admits students who live and identify as female regardless of biological sex” and students assigned female at birth “who identify as non-binary or gender non-conforming.” “Students who begin their college experience at Alverno identifying as female but at some time begin identifying as male, non-binary or gender non-conforming are invited to remain enrolled through graduation.”Barnard College: “accepts applications from those who consistently live and identify as women. Applicants assigned female at birth who now identify as male [or “who identify as non-binary or gender non-conforming”] are not eligible for admission.” Individuals assigned female at birth who self-identify as men while at the institution are able to continue to earn a degree there.
Men’s Colleges:Morehouse College, the largest historically men’s college, will begin admitting trans men in 2020, but will not allow trans women who are admitted to remain at the college. “Once admitted to the College, all students are expected to self-identify as men throughout their education at Morehouse. If a student transitions from a man to a woman, that student will no longer be eligible to matriculate at Morehouse.”
US citizens or immigrants who are born male and changed their gender to female are still required to register. Individuals who are born female and changed their gender to male are not required to register.OPM notes that “transgender” refers to people whose gender identity and/or expression is different from the sex assigned to them at birth (e.g. the sex listed on an original birth certificate). The OPM Guidance further explains that the term “transgender woman” is typically used to refer to someone who was assigned the male sex at birth but who identifies as a female. Likewise, OPM provides that the term “transgender man” typically is used to refer to someone who was assigned the female sex at birth but who identifies as male.
Since when were we "people who bleed"?
It is a preposterous argument used by those that wish to conflate and confuse gender by using menstruation, or even lack of a predominant monthly cycle, to undermine biologically born females and imply that those born with male biology, doesn't mean they're not female.
It won't change the physical FACT that a Trans person is still born with fully formed sexual reproductive organs that determined their sex/gender at birth. I don't see gender as fluid myself.Even the brain, which is an organ, is functioning the body it's familiar with and a person who identifies as Trans would not know in a million years what it really feels like to be the opposite gender. The rest is hormonal and psychological.
It has always been human rule that the two genders have always needed their own private spaces at times due to physical and even mental differences that nature dictates.
It's not a subject that I know a lot about but I have known a couple of men who assumed a female identity, one enjoyed the dressing up but eventually went back to being a male. The other stayed female, didn't transition but remained with his real life wife but as part of a lesbian couple! I admit that was tough to get my head around.
It's tricky having this type of conversation without sounding like a man hater!
If we truly respect gays, the buck stops here in the now frontier.
