idk if you have do you have any thoughts on it? i think Mount Holyoke’s approach handles it the best, by encouraging inclusion of all trans students (both trans men, trans women, and genderqueer which it sounds like not all of these institutions are about) and participation but maintaining the historical mission of the institution (like in that they still call it a women’s college but acknowledge—and hopefully eventually celebrate—that not all of their students necessarily are women)
