Transgender Student Files Complaint After Being Banned From All-Male Dorm
CBS Cleveland ^ | March 21, 2012

Posted on 03/21/2012 12:30:13 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

OXFORD, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) — A transgender student at Miami University has filed a complaint against the school after not being allowed to serve as a residential assistant in an all-male dorm.

Kaeden Kass, who was born a female but identifies himself as male, filed a complaint with the dean of students and the Miami University council over the incident, according to WLWT-TV. Kass was offered the same position for a female suite.

“The problem is, I’m a male-identified person,” Kass told WLWT-TV. “As soon as I’m in a space that is all female, my identity gets erased.”

“Kaeden Kass, who was born a female but identifies himself as male...”

Wrong gender. Should be “identifies itself as a male...”

Intolerant school. How come they don’t have a trans-gender dorm? Next to the dorm for those just a bit confused about their gender.

Odd.

I'm a 'male-identified person' and my identity most certainly wouldn't be erased in an all female space.

Two guys dressed up as women and lived in the women’s dorm? Mid- to late 1980’s...?

If your identity depends on who else is around you, you're in trouble.

I bet will happen in the military. Some shemale service member will demand to be issued a dress and military bra. He she or it will demand a bunk in whatever barracks it wants. Things will get interesting in the shower room. Thanks 0bama!

Enough with the make-believe maladies. They don’t exist. Never did. Never will. They are conjured up out of thin air, solely as a means to attack our way of life, and anyone who claims to be afflicted with one of them, needs to be smacked down, and hard.

University spokeswoman Claire Wagner told CBS Cleveland [...] “We offer on-campus housing specifically for transgender students,”

Nice. Tuition money going to good use. Specific dorms for every sexual persuasion but scant monty to teach the students any useful skills or knowledge.

I’m sure the judge could reach an equitable settlement.

There are two conflicting sets of problems here.

The first is a transgender who identifies as a male. The second is the other dorm residents who may feel uncomfortable with a transgender person who is allowed intimate access to their lives.

It shouldn’t be a problem. That is, the university no doubt has many jobs equivalent to a dorm resident assistant they could offer this person, that are in no way dependent on, or sensitive to gender.

While the law may say that this person cannot be discriminated against as far as being hired, at a particular pay level and grade, they law should in no way force either employment that makes someone sexually uncomfortable, or makes others sexually uncomfortable, in intimate surroundings.

There is an exception to jobs that require some degree of sexual intimacy, that they may be specific to a gender. But there is no legitimate way in which the law can require an employer to impose what is in effect sexual harassment, on its customers, based on the *desire* of a potential employee to have that particular job.

What happens when a person who was born a man, and identifies himself as a man, attempts to have sex with this person based on the fact that she is biologically female? Suppose they’re all drunk and he succeeds? Or what if a man who identifies himself as homosexual attempts to have sex with this person based on her identifying herself as male, only to find that he’s a she?

I’m very grateful that all the people in my life are, in fact, the sex they think they are.

“As soon as I’m in a space that is all female, my identity gets erased.”
The big problem isn't that there exists a person who would seriously make such a statement, but that we live in a society that takes such statements seriously.

The university does offer gender neutral housing, but this student (who is still legally and officially identified as a female) refuses to accept placement there.

I can see how the university would be backed into a corner if this person had taken surgical and legal steps . But this is a “self-identification.”

You know, I have the same problem. I, too, am a "male-identified person." Been that way for years. But, unlike Mr(?) Kass, when I'm in a space that is all female my male identity becomes, shall we say, "enhanced." Mr. Kass must have something wrong with him if he has different feelings.

Maybe it needs to decide once and for all what sex it is.

For a long time, now, I’ve thought “trans-gender” meant the person actually physically changed their sex. Now I see that it means they just “think” they’ve changed their sex.

So, now we have...

male
female
homosexual
lesbian
bi-sexual
trans-sexual (which are the ones who go under the knife, I guess...ugh)
and trans-gender

I’m sure there will be something new come along soon.
What a world....

Because it's not politically correct to think of this individual as "disturbed" and she is milking it to the bone (so to speak). Trans-gender is not a race and you and I know it, but those who want to fundamentally transform America would have us think it is and they guilt those who buy into that notion by insinuating bigotry.

I miss the old days.

If he/she/it were really identified as a male, he/she/it would consider it a stroke of great fortune to be in the female dorm.

It’s likely to be neater, to smell better, and best of all, it’s full of college-aged women.

Me too. I lead a boring life, and for that I am grateful.

I've always wondered how much of this nonsense is for attention, and how much has a legitimate basis in psychology.

I'm no head-shrinker, but treatment, not indulgence, strikes me as the solution.

So, be careful with what you wish for. :-)

I once worked at a job where there was a guy who had undergone a lopadickoffome; none of the natural-born women would use the restroom while he was in there.

Our secretary’s desk (we still called ‘em ‘secretary’ back in those days) was situated such that she could monitor passage of people going to the restroom; it became one of her unofficial duties to let the other women know when it was safe to use the facilities.
