Transgender student denied admission to all-female Smith College
Daily Caller ^ | 03/21/2013 | Eric Owens

Posted on 03/21/2013 7:33:30 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd

A transgender high school student who applied to prestigious, private, all-female Smith College has been rejected because the school only accepts women.

Smith returned Calliope Wong’s application — and application fee — earlier this month, reports The Advocate.

“As you may remember from our previous correspondence, Smith is a women’s college, which means that undergraduate applicants to Smith must be female at the time of admission,” admissions dean Debra Shaver wrote in a letter to Wong, The Advocate says.

Wong has identified as female for several years, according to the Keystone Student Voice. However, on the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Wong apparently checked the gender box saying male.

According to The Advocate, Smith’s rejection places reliance on the laws of Connecticut, Wong’s home state. The state categorizes Wong as male and would only recognize Wong as a female after expensive, complex sex reassignment surgery.

On August 15, 2012, Wong identified on a Tumblr blog as “a male-to-female transsexual girl.”

“Yes, I was born into a body with typically male parts,” Wong blogged last fall. “But I identify and am living as female. Prevailing scientific and medical opinions support the fact that who I am identity-wise is different from the gender identity typically associated my physical body.”

Surprised they are still permitted to discriminate against men, regardless of their sexual preference.

The easiest way out is to put the application in the shredder, and then claim you never rec’d it.

LOL. Oh, the tangled webs the liberals weave with their absurd and contrary to nature worldviews. Rejecting God is hazardous to your health.

You know, gays & lesbians should be vehement enemies of "transexuals". At their core, a transexual rejects gay or lesbianism in an extremely radical way. They acknowledge the truth of the male/female relationship but have accepted the lie that they are "trapped" in the "wrong" body and choose to surgically change that. Oy vey!

So rather than embracing their "gay" or "lesbian" self, they reject that completely for an even more radical 'solution' to reject how God made them with surgical procedures. How utterly blind and lost.

i like how he throws in the word, "typically," here and there to qualify his declarative... makes it non-commital...

In much the way that we have to refer to some parents as "biological", we are in an age when we have to refer to "biological females" (or even genetic females) to distinguish from those who "identify as female", who are deluding themselves and need help, not sympathy and indulging.

You can identify yourself as a toaster, but that doesn't mean that burned bread will pop out of your mouth or that you'll go on a shooting spree if you see a Colonial Warrior.

Put Wong in the Smith residence hall. The dykes there will have the bulk of the surgery completed by the first week of September.

Just because Mr. Wong is confused about his gender does not mean that the world must be confused too.

It is obvious that Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey are now running this country. I mean who else could combine a Calliope and a Wong? Perhaps the live steam from a leaky valve blew the wang off Wong and the poor "girl" is making a virtue from necessity, as well as beautiful music?

Smith is being horribly politically incorrect here. I mean if Calliope's SATs are higher than Obama's , she deserves admission.

"Mom, Dad, this is my room-mate, Calliope."

Technically, Calliope is a eunuch and as such deserves scholarship status in if not Smith, the upper reaches of the Republican Party.

The real irony here is that Northampton, where Smith is located, is a real epicenter of Homosexual identity. I would have to estimate that more than half of Smith’s student population is lesbian. That they would reject this person is truly surprising.

Now, I was wondering when a TG student would be refused admission to one of those ELITE Women's Colleges.

When will I see a TG basketball player play in the WNBA? Or a TG FTM play in the NHL?

Soon I guess...

Could be. I hope so. And I hope many follow suit.

What is Smith going to do, question his diversity?

That's the beauty of this.

Northampton is about 97% lesbian/Gay IMHO...A few years ago we were driving to Vermont and we pulled off 91 to get gas, There was a fair and you couldn’t believe the kids there with either 2 dads or 2 moms....we were looked at as the odd couple (mom and dad).

“As you may remember from our previous correspondence, Smith is a women’s college, which means that undergraduate applicants to Smith must be female at the time of admission,” admissions dean Debra Shaver wrote in a letter to Wong, The Advocate says.

As much as I appreciate seeing standards (finally, and very low, but at least it's an absolute standard), this response was imprudent. The correct response would be a sweet, "due to this year's large number of qualified applicants, we are unable to accept all qualified applicants; Smith College regrets that we are unable to offer you admission at this time . . ." Never, ever tell someone why you are rejecting them, not for a job, not for a date, and not for college admission.

"Prevailing scientific and medical opinions support the fact that who I am identity-wise is different from the gender identity typically associated my physical body.”

In fewer words, he is saying he's mentally ill. Those opinions "prevail" only with MSM journailists and a handful of leftie celebritydocs.

Guess Smith gals want "no parts" of this delusional applicant.

It's kind of funny, since Smith is a radically lesbian leftie campus. A conservative friend of mine actually got beat up there in her naïve freshman year when she wrote an article for the campus paper in support of our troops. Ahhh, liberals. They're so consistent....not.

Not all. Some transgender guys still like girls, so they are actually trying to change themselves into lesbians.

The interesting thing is when the transgender guy is dating a girl. She isn’t lesbian, she’s dating a guy, but the guy identifies as a girl, and is thinking about sex change. When he finishes, he’ll be a “girl”. Then she’ll be a lesbian?

Chaz Bono's female partner dumped him after all the work was done. She didn't like living around all that testosterone behavior.

Self-acceptance: it's a wonderful thing. Here we have many thousands of American veterans living with disfiguring wounds, and getting on with it. But these genderwussies can't decide whether to sit or stand to pee.

Rush Limbaugh has always self-identified as a Male Lesbian.

Says that’s the only PC way to be attracted to women, and he suspects that there are many lesbians trapped in mens’ bodies who have decided that surgical intervention is neither indicated nor necessary.

I dont know, if elementary school and high school kids have to have transgendered students in their classes, I would expect that Smith would cave.

I have never understood why some enterprising young man has not sued the sh** out of Smith, ala VMI, and gotten a free education with the monies he gets. I would never GO there but they are a school waiting for a lawsuit. And deserve one.
