Transgender Attending All Male & All Female Colleges
Transgender refers to the people who have a gender identity or rather gender expression
that is different from their assigned gender. Transgender people face a lot of challenges in the
society including discrimination and mistreatment in society. Such people, for instance, could
not be admitted into schools since they were always treated unfairly. The continued fight for
equality for all people in American society has pushed for the rights of transgender people. The
treatment they get in the society has changed significantly and this has contributed to them living
a better life in society. A number of colleges that could not accept transgender people, for
instance, are now being admitted in such schools and colleges.
Morehouse College is one of the colleges that has adopted a policy of admitting
transgender men. The move is aimed at protecting the transgender community which for a very
long time has faced a lot of mistreatment in the society. Morehouse College has been historically
an all-male black school in Atlanta. It has been admitting male black students however, with the
recent adoption of the policy of allowing transgender community in the school, transgender men
will start being admitted in the college. Through admission of the transgender people in the
college will greatly promote their education in the society hence make them better people.
The minority group in the United States have also been neglected hence making them
undergo untold suffering in the society. Human rights campaign works have tirelessly created
awareness in the society for equality and inclusion of transgender people (Griner, Vamos,
Thompson, Logan, Vázquez-Otero, & Daley, 2017). The campaigns have yielded a lot of
benefits to the transgender community as their treatment has changed significantly. Through the
awareness campaign, people have changed their attitude towards the transgender community and
this has greatly improved their treatment in society.
