ezs note:  Wow... how interesting.  I have no qualms with private colleges or universities instituting some strange and/or appalling codes...  but that's only if their funding remains totally private!  Note that the article said that Multnomah University accepted 1.1 million in federal funds!  Now, that's a different kettle of fish.  I do think that federal monies are a valuable resource, but if their hand remains out, certain standards have to be met.  Please urge your Congressperson if any money is to be doled out to a private institution, transgender people have to be welcomed.  (Thanks to Mr. VanderHart for your diligence.)

The new Congress is here! Time to bug the hell out of them!

New Congress, old Congress... what's the dif, you say.  Well, watch the news.  John Boehner had the crap scared out of him when Republican lawmakers tore him a new one. Very thankfully, some   tea party crazies were sent home packing.

The fact is this:  Whether you wish to be married, whether you wish to keep the money you earned that your heterosexual neighor  earned, whether you wish to walk home unaccosted... if you don't say anything, IT'S YOUR FAULT. Period.

C'mon, people, you can do it.  Take five to e-write.  I did, and I feel great.
