Mills College becomes the first single-sex school in the U.S. with policy accepting trans students

gaywrites:

Mills College, a women’s school in Oakland, California, has just made history.

The college has adopted a written policy explicitly stating that trans women are welcome to attend the school, making it the first single-sex school in the country with such a policy.

According to school officials, between 3 and 5 of the school’s 1,000 applicants each year identify as trans or gender nonconforming; this policy will make it easier for these students to apply and attend, should they so choose. The first students for whom the new policy applies will begin their classes this coming spring semester. 

“When people can be authentically who they are — that’s who Mills is,” said Mills senior Tess Fillbeck-Bates.

“This is really just a codification of our practice for several years,” said Brian O’Rourke, vice president for enrollment management.

This is a HUGE deal for students of all gender identities. When colleges and universities are inclusive and affirming on paper as well as in practice, it sets a standard for other schools to follow. Well done, Mills. Well done. 

Yay Oakland!

On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence.

This is a huge part of why I’m SO ANGRY. The conversations that SMM has to have with the Dude (and Beez) that I don’t have to have with M & W solely because of their skin color—that’s terrorism right there. I know that word gets overused and I stand by using it here.

It’s not just that they kill you, it’s that they tell your family and the rest of the world it’s your fault they’ve killed you. Your mom has to look into your three-year-old eyes and wonder what the hell to say to keep you safe. 

It’s fucking wrong.
