Oberlin College, a smallish hothouse of leftist folly about 35 miles southwest of Cleveland, Ohio, is contemplating a complex set of rules designed to make the athletic department more hospitable for transgender people.
The new rules would mandate transgender sensitivity training for all coaches and athletic staff members, reports Campus Reform.
In addition, the new policy would replace all gender-specific pronouns – she, her, hers, he, her, hers – with plural equivalents they, them and theirs.
Student-athletes don’t have to attend the required training sessions, but they would be “strongly encouraged.”
The new rules would also require all athletic department paperwork to say “a transgender student-athlete who was designated a female at birth and is/is not taking medically prescribed hormone replacement therapy related to gender transition” for female students who have decided they are now male students.
