THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — California Baptist University expelled Domaine Javier, after she revealed on MTV she was biologically male. Javier has identified herself as female since she was a toddler. Cal Baptist reportedly stated they kicked Javier out for “committing or attempting to engage in fraud, or concealing identity” when she checked “female” on her application form.
Javier: “I didn’t do anything wrong, they said, ‘On your application form you put ‘female.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, that’s how I see myself.”
Mark Wood of the Transgender Law Center: ”California law prohibits employment, housing, government, insurance and other types of discrimination based upon gender identity. But private universities generally are not covered by the law.”
University spokesperson Mark Wyatt: “California Baptist University does not comment on student disciplinary matters . . .”
From the Press-Enterprise: “Cal Baptist’s written policies do not explicitly bar transgender students. But it has generally socially conservative rules, including a prohibition of social dances on university property and a requirement that applicants sign a form agreeing not to engage in homosexual behavior or to cohabit with someone of the opposite sex.”
Cal Baptist is in Riverside, CA. Read more from the Press Enterprise:
