commentary: fear of a trans college

Standard

via Feministing:

Let’s be clear: the attendance of trans men at “women’s” colleges is part and parcel with the bigoted decision to reject trans women. The gender binary view required that the scales had to be balanced: two trans enter, one trans leave. If you are scared of trans women’s “male socialization” and thus reject them–which I believe most, if not all, these colleges decided to do before accepting trans men–our male vs. female society requires you to also believe trans men have “female socialization” sufficient to be accepted, or at least not required to transfer.
