It's been a frustrating year at my alma mater, Barnard College, in the fight for a trans-inclusive admissions policy. In less than a week, the board of trustees will be voting on whether or not Barnard can admit transgender students to the college (that is, students who identify as female, but lack vaginas.) I could rant about the injustice of this for pages and pages—the injustice of the fact that there should even be a vote about this, for starters. A classmate of mine, Luna Adler, just created a short film that addresses this injustice, and it's more beautiful and articulate than any rant I could muster up. Ultimately, though, this video addresses a much larger injustice surrounding the role of institutions within the lives of trans people. It's not just about Barnard. It's about the fact that when situations likes these occur, these higher-ups are deciding whether or not transgender women are, in fact, women at all.
