Male, female or neither? Gender identity debated at same-sex colleges
CNN ^ | Nov 8th, 2010

Posted on 11/08/2010 9:28:21 AM PST by TaraP

Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- When Kevin Murphy entered as a freshman at Mount Holyoke, a Massachusetts women's college, in 2003, he was female. By the time he received his diploma, he was male.

Phillip Hudson, who attended Morehouse, an all-male historically black college in Georgia, calls himself androgynous, meaning he doesn't identify with masculine or feminine identity norms.

The two men represent a debate that is brewing at some of the nation's same-sex colleges. For these colleges, which have historically defied boundaries and challenged the status quo, a new test of tolerance has surfaced: How are they handling gender identity?

Defining gender on same-sex campuses has become murky as some students say they fall outside the conventional male-female gender binary. More schools are encountering complicated cases where not all students at men's colleges identify as male and not all students at women's colleges identify as female

The diversity of gender expression comes in many forms, from individuals who consider themselves androgynous or nongender-conforming to students who are transgender or in the process of changing their sex. Transgender people are often defined as those who do not identify with the gender they were at birth.

Political correctness turns confused people into freaks. All of this sophistry about changing men into women is just more idiocy.

Mentally ill people seeking to restructure the entire society so that they will be somewhat less obviously mentally ill.

That's all it is.

It still amazes me that such a small population gets so much attention. No one can really change their gender, they can approximate the opposite sex through painful and dangerous procedures that will ultimately shorten their lives. I believe it is malpractice to butcher people in such ways and feed into their personal delusions and insecurities. It is unfortunate that in order to satsify radical gender nonconformity politics that people who could find peace through learning to merely think differently are set on a path that turns them into a permanent sexual sideshow freaks.

What is especially horrible is their own self mutilation is not enough they wish to mutilate the law to elevate their sideshow status to a honored position in society as if their phalic disorientation makes them not just different but even superior to the super majority of people who do not share their gender confusion.

Is it really necessary to make a decision on this?

This affects virtually no one.

I never could get the transgender thing. I know a few folks who were dudes that became women. Not bad people, but I definitely don’t get it. One became a woman and is living as a lesbian...with a real lesbian. Another is a nurse...has a lot of funny stories though.

From the DailyMail (UK) online:

A VERY peculiar engagement
Charles had a sex change - then hated being Samantha so became a man again. Now he's getting married. So is his fiancée barmy, brave... or just in love?

I wonder how many students have applied to go there under a transracial diversity program. < /sarc >

Anyone who can say “conventional male-female gender binary” seriously, is insane.

Okay....one of you two please explain this to the “Genius”!

Was He a She when it went to the all Women’s college? Or was She a He? I am so confused! If she was a He then why did a Woman’s college let in a man?

So what if a man is “androgynous” and goes to a Men’s college? androgynous? Just like “It’s Pat” from SNL? Correct?

I think my head is going to explode!

It's getting to the point where a ping to the lists really needs a "Twilight Zone" audio link. Once people act as though confused and mentally ill people can "decide" which sex they are, and their decision is reality and must be accomodated, we have officially entered... The Twilight Zone.

this is just nuts, every issue involving these mentally sick people is just plain out and out twilight zone.

2 year old can understand this, remember kindergarten cop and the kid stands up to Arnie and says boys have a penis girls have a vagina.
How right that line was now it’s about time that these sick people were told this instead of idiots saying they can be what ever they want and it is good to have sex with the other sex.
These people saying this is not helping these mentally sick people and usually I’ve found it’s the usual people what say, “well I have a friend and they are nice so I have no problem with them.

The last ping was about a mother having her homo sons baby.

When will these people be dealt with so they can get better?

exactly

the mentally sick are so desperate to be seen as normal that they try to shut the normal people up and then try to brainwash kids into thinking their sickness is not a sickness.

Sadly even some adults fall for their crap, even one elderly woman on here said she got to know a queer who joined her church and he is nice so she now has no problem with them.

Maybe she should go the likes of folsom fair and see how they really are when they are not infiltrating churches etc

met one guy who dresses as a woman but thinks he’s a lesbian.
Now if that is not grounds for them to be committed then I don’t know what is.

Like the myth of *moderate* muslims, and *Islam is a religion of peace*.

Nobody ever said that gays couldn't be nice people, but no, I am not interested in their private lives and no, don't wish to normalize it, and no, will never accept it as normal.

We have very religious friends that had twins about five years ago. The twins are neither male nor female. They have garbled sex organs and their DNA is a mix of male and female.
The family was devastated. They chose to raise the twins as girls since that would be an easier surgery. So far, so good. Birth defects happen.

I read a book about folks who are being surgically altered into “vampires”. They were having their teeth altered, their faces reshaped, their skin bleached.

But they aren’t vampires.

It's not even possible to correct the above statement. The author's very premise is a lie. Unfortunately, the MSM itself is complicit in this lie in almost every article written or filmed for public view.

I pity any parent who has a child who is considering attending one of these colleges, or virtually any college or university these days. It is very difficult for a person that young to resist the level of indoctrination that occurs there.

They’ll be dealt with when enough of the rest of us shout them down, vote them down, and are willing to do a bit of civil disobedience into the bargain.

That, and good old Mother Nature will sooner or later do her thing as well.
