trans women at smith

Feminism is the political theory and practice to free all women: women of color, working-class women, poor women, physically challenged women, lesbians, old women, as well as white economically privileged heterosexual women. Anything less than this is not feminism, but merely female self-aggrandizement.

If prospective transgender students say that they are women, they should be accepted at face value as women, because they are women. The odds that this unspoken fear that some of these all-women’s college alumnae seem to have — that cisgender (people who identify with the gender they were assigned at birth) men will lie about being transgender just so they can get into a women’s college and hurt women — is highly unlikely. And if the goal here is to protect all women at the college, not admitting trans women because you don’t believe them when they tell you they’re women, regardless of their surgery status, isn’t protecting all women, it’s protecting the ones you’re choosing to protect.

Smith College to admit transgender women in historic policy change
"In the years since Smith’s founding, concepts of female identity have evolved," the college said in announcing its change in admission policy.

“The board’s decision affirms Smith’s unwavering mission and identity as a women’s college, our commitment to representing the diversity of women’s lived experiences, and the college’s exceptional role in the advancement of women worldwide.”

Hollywood is as racist as fuck, though. The Oscar nominee list is downright embarrassing. And, no, boasting that Will Smith makes a ton of $$$$~! and that Lupita is SO GORGEOUS IN THOSE COLORFUL CLOTHES! (um, anyone with eyesight can see that. You don’t need to tell us) doesn’t change that.

It’s nonsense.  

I’m as white as the virgin fucking snow, and even I’m looking at the Oscars and feeling: “What the fuck is wrong with you all? You dimwits.” 

When you’re white…and still feel utterly, sickeningly, disgusted by white people.
