Apparently cause of Utah's protection of transgendered people law, off campus dorms and houses renting to college students, can't refuse transgendered people the right to stay, even if the OTHER residents would have issues (such as 3 females having to share a room with a male who thinks he is female)..

Additionally the ACLU is warning Idaho schools they can't force (or shouldn't force) female graduates to wear dresses, as it is 'discriminatory'..

Is this insane or what?

Won't get into this specific case but if a private school has a dress code then people should abide by it. Also, so as not to "offend" anyone, a person born with a penis should not be able to share a room with a person born with a vagina in a setting like this. Doesn't matter how they identify themselves.

In addition, a straight person should not be required to share a room with an open homosexual as it fits into the same category as co-ed.

So, no requirements for either of the following:

Penis & vagina sharing room

Gay and straight sharing room

Simple, easy, nobody needs to be uncomfortable and it avoids several obvious issues, especially in this day and age of sexual assault/harassment accusations and charges.

On the transgendered housing -- I agree that could cause problems.

On the ACLU warning Idaho Public Schools that requiring female graduates to wear white or pastel dresses or skirts to graduation could be discriminatory; I agree with the ACLU warning. If a girl would rather wear slacks, or a black skirt vice a white or pastel one ... as long as she is dressed appropriately, no big deal. Why must she be in a dress or skirt?
