THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — A British academic bastillion, Oxford University, has caved on their strict dress policy and adopted rules allowing transgender student to wear the ceremonial clothing of the gender they present in. These new rules go into effect next week.
Oxford has a long tradition of requiring students taking exams to wear gender-specific uniforms or sub fuscs. This dress code is also followed during formal occasions at the university.
However, concerns of the rules being unfair to trans students, especially with the harsh punishment that follows wearing the wrong attire, prompted the university to change the policy. It was a student LGBTQ organization that pushed for the change.
Oxford’s LGBTQ Society’s Jess Pumphrey: “In future there will be no need for transgender students to cross-dress to avoid being confronted by invigilators or disciplined during their exam.”
Oxford University is the second oldest university in the world and many of its graduates over the years went on to become major world leaders, including most recently, former President Bill Clinton. Forty seven eventual Nobel Prize winners were either students or taught at Oxford.
Let’s welcome Oxford University to the 21st century — the Transgender Age, finally!
