Apr 14 - Morehouse College will admit transgender men
 

 
image

The only all-male historically black college in the US will begin admitting transgender men next year, a major shift at a time when higher education institutions around the nation are adopting more welcoming policies toward LGBT students.

Morehouse, in Atlanta, counts among its alumni the Rev Martin Luther King Jr, filmmaker Spike Lee and former Atlanta mayor Maynard Jackson. It bills itself as the “college of choice for black men” that has instilled leadership skills in generations of African American men.

Leaders said its board of trustees approved the policy on Saturday.

Transgender men will be allowed to enroll in 2020. Students who identify as women but were born male cannot enroll, however, and anyone who transitions from male to female will not be automatically eligible to receive a degree.

Morehouse officials hailed the move as an important step toward a more inclusive campus, while affirming their mission to educate and develop men.

“I think Morehouse having the courage to speak to issues of masculinity in today’s environment is important,” said college president David Thomas. “For 152 years, the world has, in some way, seen Morehouse as the West Point of black male development.”

More than 1,000 colleges and universities around the country have adopted some form of transgender policy, including about two dozen historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). An increasing number of schools are updating admissions guidelines to ensure that transgender students have a welcoming experience, said Human Rights Commission spokeswoman Sarah McBride.

“Young people are incredibly supportive of LGBT equality, including transgender,” McBride said. “Schools are responding in kind. In many ways, our college campuses look like the country we’ll have in 10 or 15 years. There are a lot of reasons for hope.”

Morehouse becomes the first standalone all-male college in the US to adopt a transgender policy. There are only two other all-male colleges: Wabash College in Indiana and Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia. Minnesota’s St John’s University, which enrolls only men but shares a co-ed academic program with the College of St Benedict, also has a transgender policy.

Thomas acknowledged that HBCUs mainly established after the civil war with the help of religious institutions like the Baptist and Methodist churches face added challenges in addressing issues of gender and s*xuality because of opposition in black churches.

“I can’t speak for all HBCUs, but we know in the black church there has largely been silence on this issue,” Thomas said. “I can imagine there may be people who would say, ‘Why would you even raise this?’ I say to those people we live in an era now where silence on these issues is actually not helpful.

“For us, as a school for men, it’s important for us to set clear expectations about what that means. That’s what we’re trying to do with this policy.”

In 2009, Morehouse updated its dress code, in part to address a handful of students who were wearing women’s clothing on campus. The following year, it held its first Gay Pride events. Morehouse offered its first LGBT course in 2013 and has a scholars program named for the civil and gay rights icon Bayard Rustin.

Spelman College, an all-woman HBCU next door to Morehouse, adopted a transgender policy in 2017, and the first transgender woman graduated in 2018. Other HBCUs with transgender policies include Tuskegee University, Howard University, Florida A&M University, Southern University in Louisiana, North Carolina Central University and Morgan State University in Maryland.

I do not see a problem with this so long as in Admissions a caveat is not created where students get preferential treatment just because they are transitioning...It’ll squeeze out even competitors who are just normal kids.

I also understand the connotation of my usage of “normal”, I also know I haven’t misused that.

If you're a black man who doesn't see a problem with this, then I don't know what to tell you except you're part of the problem.

It's a fu*king shame.


Morehouse out here destroying it's legacy just to chase gay support.


When black people allow themselves to follow the most heinous parts of their oppressor's lunacy, they're done.


Having been around a few 'transgenders' recently, it's clear these people are delusional. They need other types of help. Not enablers.

I'm for LGBT rights, but at the same time I think we should preserve college institutions for straight black men in America. We need & deserve our own academic space if we choose to be there; where black men, who were born black men & want to continue being black men, are teaching eachother to be better black men.

And black LGBT deserve there own collegiate space as well, where they can teach & raise their own; let's build a space for them instead of reinventing spaces that are already well established for others and are still needed for others. We dont have to integrate everything to show that we're progressive as a community, cuz if that's the case then we might as well turn Morehouse into a regular a*s college.

This is why so many of our black businesses/institutions disappeared after integration, cuz we always acting extra like we got something prove to the world, when other non-black communities are doing NONE of this sht. We low-key trying to prove our humanity still.

This is interesting because they've always admitted trans students

It's not like most people can spot f to m trans people anyways

It's not like colleges ask for your birth certificate or DNA either

They should have kept doing what they were doing without an official policy announcement

This too. I'm sure Morehouse already got plenty downlow gay dudes and possibly a few females that transitioned to look like alot like men at the college. But when you got effeminate gay dudes on campus in skirts & heels n sh*t, and then lesbians on campus that obviously look female but they want you to identify them as men, then I'm like

Just be a regular a*s college at that point.

It's crazy how black folks don't see that they're being replaced by not only the Hispanics but also the LGBT. Now that the social engineers don't need you anymore, what do you think is going to happen from here on out for black leftists?

If you’re insecure you give af about dumb sh*t like this, when you’re secure you just want other people to find the happiness you have

And if you truly believed trans are mentally ill like some of you claim you’d treat them even kinder than normal people, unless you’re the type to trip mentally retarded kids too; you’d take pity on them not animosity


So basically most of y’all are insecure frauds who prob live in the boonies and are reaching neanderthal status in 2019 because of how technology and population density are speeding up the rate of evolution

I'm not trying to normalize anything, I'm just teaching stupid people like you to accept people. Racist people felt the same way you do when they started integrating and letting black people vote and go to "white schools." Sucks your dumbass learned to think just like them.

I'm not comparing what blacks went through you dumb motherfu*ker. I'm comparing how racist whites re-acted to black people gaining more freedom to how you and your fellow trailer park trash are re-acting to people accepting gay people and trans people. Goddamn you're dumb. Why do I always have to explain this simple sh*t to you?
