THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — “[Women’s colleges] been faced with a lingering quandary over sex and gender identity: where do transgender students fit in?” — Krystie Yandoli in The Nation.
Quandary indeed. It appears the landmark California anti-discrimination bills recently signed by Gov. Jerry Brown will force colleges to clearly define where transgender students fit in. The writer, Krystie Yandoli has tackled something I haven’t really given much thought. It’s a worthwhile read if you’re planning to be a student or are involved in education.
Excerpts from the article: “[CA’s] landmark legislation has the ability to additionally set a precedent for women’s colleges and their policies around transgender students.” . . .
“Trans students have had a growing presence in America and, in turn, on college campuses. Despite the increasing transgender population, there’s still very little official protection from discrimination for these students.” . . .
“California can now potentially serve as a critical influence for women’s colleges to enact official policies for their transgender students.”
