“Trans women are women”: Single-gender schools revisit admissions policies

“Trans women are women”: Single-gender schools revisit admissions policies:

TSER board member Charlie Kerr and director Eli Erlick​ just spoke with NBC News​ regarding trans people at single-gender institutions.

“A number of single-gender schools across the country — from universities to elementary schools — are revisiting their admissions policies. Not all of these schools, however, are taking the same approach.”

Wow! We gave out over 5,000 stickers and infographics at this year’s Philly Trans Health! Thanks to everyone who stopped by! If you couldn’t make it, you can still order our stickers from www.transstudent.org/store

I’m sorry but I need to know: Are you transmedicalists or support them? I’m tired of their abuse and how they’re ruining our community and I can’t support any trans person/organization alligned with such dangerous nonsense.

Hi anon!
If you mean people who are arguing that “being trans is a medical condition/disease/disorder” then no, we are not. While we cannot speak as TSER is a collective group of many different young trans people, the admins of this page have actually worked to ensure that trans people are treated as their gender regardless of medical history and are able to receive informed consent-based care and name/gender changes in school. At least one of us has published papers before on depathologization and the limitations of considering “trans” as a medical condition. Additionally, our comprehensive model policy on trans students in colleges and universities highlights that it is crucial to treat trans people as their gender regardless of medical history). Removing being transgender from medical texts and simply allowing us to be ourselves and access gender-affirming care if we want it is so important for our community. 

I hope this answers your question!
