Not certain if this is the right forum and please move where appropriate, but if this isn't a case of political correct madness, I don't know what is.



Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school, according to an article in the New York Times. But when he got there, he introduced himself as a “masculine-of-center genderqueer” person named “Timothy” (the name he picked for himself) and asked them to use male pronouns when referring to him.

And, by all accounts, Boatwright felt welcome on campus — until the day he announced that he wanted to run for the school’s office of multicultural affairs coordinator, whose job is to promote a “culture of diversity” on campus.

But some students thought that allowing Boatwright to have the position would just perpetuate patriarchy. They were so opposed, in fact, that when the other three candidates (all women of color) dropped out, they started an anonymous Facebook campaign encouraging people not to vote at all to keep him from winning the position.

“I thought he’d do a perfectly fine job, but it just felt inappropriate to have a white man there,” the student behind the so-called “Campaign to Abstain” said.

“It’s not just about that position either,” the student added. “Having men in elected leadership positions undermines the idea of this being a place where women are the leaders.”

So the transgender woman wanted to be treated just like a man and now is upset for being treated just like a man. I see the collision of two progressive "protected classes" here and see some real cognitive dissonance on the horizon.

Had she been born a white male, his application would have been rejected offhand with a firm "right on stop the heterocage" from the progressives.

Had she maintained her female status, she would have not been true to her "inner self."

Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't, I guess.

Eric Cartman would have the answer to this one.

Us cis-gingers have no clue.

Wouldn't this person be the absolute picture of diversity....?

No wait.

Why would any woman want to become a white man. They are supposed to be exactly what is wrong with the world... according to those that espouse diversity.

These things could make your brain hurt.

Gotta love when Progressive doctrine bites it's own tail!

The more things like this happens the better for all of us.

Hypocrisy and prejudice at it's best. Just the attitude to have for "diverse" culture leaders.

Well this is a racist comment!

Come on! Everyone knows white men can't be diversity officers. [/sarcasm]

Must be that white privilege at work again,

It's not about the individual.
It's about the ideology.

The person must support the ideology but the ideology cares nothing about the person.

Welcome to the new world.

What the heck! There is so much wrong with this story that I'm not even sure where to begin... A girl who believes she is a guy, misrepresents herself on an entrance application for an all girl's school, gets to school and "becomes" a guy then tries to run for a cultural diversity position and gets denied because of sexism against men? I think I'm going to quietly step out of this thread...

These people are the reason we have the first affirmative action president. Qualifications are irrelevant as long as we are making the correct social statement.

I love the thought process by the progressives on this, the hypocrisy is fantastic....

"dont label anyone by their gender it creates bias"

"Were now going to call you CIS gender"

Really? so in the spirit of equality you place yet another label on someone? because me simply being a hetero sexual male isnt enough?

I have to be put into a certain "group" ?

The idiocy is mind boggling.....

It's a girl's school. Should represent the girls. Sounds like dude want his cake and eat it too. On the upside he can join the Masons now.

Oh this is hilarious.

Thank science for stuff like this.

This guy, should realize he's being treated exactly the way he wants to.

You now have white male privilege, you should check it at the door. I know as a former woman, that's hard to wrap your head around, but welcome to world of white men in the 21st century.
