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 Wongs application and application fee earlier this month, reports The Advocate.
As you may remember from our previous correspondence, Smith is a womens 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, Smiths rejection places reliance on the laws of Connecticut, Wongs 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.

No wong, so no right.
So Wong still has a wang!
Well I identify and am living as Princess Anastasia.
Surprised they are still permitted to discriminate against men, regardless of their sexual preference.
Two Wongs don’t make it right.
Must be the one in the middle, because the one on the left is in jail, and the one on the right is dead.
Two wongs are impossible.
The easiest way out is to put the application in the shredder, and then claim you never rec’d it.
Sounds like full employment for several lawyers for several years...
And here we go...
Liberals being hoisted by their own petard is small consolation to our reigning political correctness, but I’ll take it.
That pesky X-Chromosome just can’t be denied!
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...
Yes, a succinct way of stating my point at post #15.
Truly deserved, we are gathered....
Put away you erasers people..they are only for the end of your pencil!
This is the final exam moderator speaking...
