In the accelerating tumble down the ideological hill that happens when ignoring natural law, we find the following phenomenon:
An all women’s college in California is admitting male students, as long as they self-identify as female. Mills College, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, approved a new policy that lets applicants who self-identify as women enroll, making it the first single-sex college to let applicants specifically pick their gender.
The new policy takes effect this fall, but the existing student body finds this loophole:
The application policy prohibits students who were born as females and have undergone surgery to become a male from admission. However, female students who become male while enrolled at the college may continue on to graduate. Students who are gender-neutral must have legally been born as a female in order to gain acceptance into Mills.
This only affects the 3-5 students annually who attempt to live as transgendered persons, but the principle is telling: nature is irrelevant, feelings rule. While the gender-identity continuum is considered fluid and self-driven, I would suppose that the students in question (men identifying as women) would have to maintain that identity for the duration of their college career, limiting the fluidity for that space of time. Unless the rules can be bent further, or as [emotional] needs dictate.
How this meshes with traditional feminist demands [yes] to carve out testosterone-free havens where women can live in safety from masculine predators is up for grabs. The old categories are quite dated, and the older assumptions about "what women want" are alien concepts at present.
