george fox university (which recently denied housing to a presurgical trans man student) just updated their policy, according to autostraddle, to say that post-surgery trans students will be granted appropriate housing, sayng that their dorms are “single-sex, designated anatomically”

As many as 15 percent of freshmen at America’s top schools are white students who failed to meet their university’s minimum standards for admission, according to Peter Schmidt, deputy editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education.

According to Schmidt, these unqualified but privileged kids are nearly twice as common on top campuses as Black and Latino students who had benefited from affirmative action.
