All-Female Colleges Adopt New Policies To Enroll Male ‘Transgender’ Students

Two all-female colleges recently agreed to officially admit male transgendered students – or biological males who dress and act like women – making them the first two universities in the nation to put such policies in place.

The policies at the Oakland, Calif.-based Mills College and Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Mass., launched this semester, and more all-female colleges are expected to follow suit.

“Just as early feminists argued that reducing women to their biological functions was a foundation of women’s oppression, we acknowledge that gender identity is not reducible to the body,” Mount Holyoke President Lynn Pasquerella said during the school’s recent back-to-school convocation.

Gone are the days when a person’s gender is the one with which they’re born. Today so-called gender fluidity has become widely acknowledged, accepted and embraced within the higher education arena, which strives to validate a wide rainbow of sexual and gender preferences.

“Fighting gender-based oppression is at the heart of Mills’ mission as a women’s college,” campus officials state in their strategic plan. “Including transgender and gender fluid students and ensuring that they have a positive educational experience at Mills is important not only to retaining students but to fulfilling the college’s mission.”

With that, Mills welcomes “students who are legally assigned to the female sex, but who identify as transgender or gender fluid” and “students who were not assigned to the female sex at birth but live and identify as women,” their admissions policy states.

And at Mount Holyoke, students admitted into the college may now include those:

Biologically born female; identifies as a woman

Biologically born female; identifies as a man

Biologically born female; identifies as other/they/ze

Biologically born female; does not identify as either woman or man

Biologically born male; identifies as woman

Biologically born male; identifies as other/they/ze and when “other/they” identity includes woman

Biologically born with both male and female anatomy (Intersex); identifies as a woman

In fact, about the only type of student both colleges do not accept now are students born biologically female but who have undergone a legal change to the male gender.
