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, Im a male-identified person, Kass told WLWT-TV. As soon as Im 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.
I'm a 'male-identified person' and my identity most certainly wouldn't be erased in an all female space.
One of the facts of life, Kaeden: if you don’t have a willie, you’re a fillie.
I guess the school doesn’t want to pretend along with he...er it.
Wasn’t there a TV series about it the other way?
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.
What has happened to this country?
When do all the Male residents have to report to Room 101?
Kaeden Kass NOT to be confused with Kayden Kross.
Which is essentially the allowable deviation from a standard. The more you deviate from the standard, eventually you will get lost.
Our society currently lacks effective means for dealing with the complaints of degenerates. At one time it would have beeen given a “touch-o-the cat!”
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,
There’s no such thing as a problem that can’t be made worse by the arrival of a lawyer.
HELLO FREAK.....YOU’RE A GIRL!!!
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.
This reminds me of my favorite poet, Samuel Hoffenstein, who wrote: “Breathes there a man with hide so tough, Who says two sexes aren’t enough?”

And I identify myself as a multi-millionaire....
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 Im 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.”
I agree... we need more lesbians showering in men’s latrines!!!
Why would any man not want that?!? Well, unless she’s hideous...
Why, towel snapping would be so much more fun!
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...
trans-sexual (which are the ones who go under the knife, I guess...ugh)
I’m sure there will be something new come along soon.
What a world....
Why does this disturbed individual get the right to force its disturbance on others?
Seems male and female have enough delegates to capture the party’s nomination. The other 5 should just drop out of the race...you know...for the good of the party.
My name is Ms. Tucks , and I will be the hemorrhoid on the backside of your college, sorta-like Fluke. But you can just call me an open sore if you like.
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.
This is stupid. This person should be classified as a retard.
You are what you are and it doesn’t matter one bean what you “identify” as.
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.
The sooner the better, my dear.
It should go bunk in the BiFiHi Fratority.
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.
I’m a male lesbian; a lesbian born in a man’s body! I belong in the women’s dorm! < /sarc >
Bosom Buddies, I think.
Yeah......... I was at a local neighborhood bar that got crashed by 12-15 very drunk, very loud, very militant lesbians.
All I can say is, "Penthouse" has it wrong. The only way I could tell that they weren't guys was to go by height.
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.
I think everyone should be allowed a test drive.
