All-Women’s Wellesley College Rejects Transgender Diversity Officer Because She’s a ‘White Man’

Whelp. This is where we are as a society now. This story out of Wellesley College—you know, Hillary Clinton’s alma mater—just about wraps it up for me. I can hardly wrap my head around it, but here it is:

Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school [Wellesley College], 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.
