Despite the complaints of women on campus, the University of Arkansas at Ft. Smith is being forced to allow a 38-year-old male student to use women’s restrooms.
The male student wishes to be known as Jennifer Braly and refers to himself as a person with “Gender Identity Disorder.”
The university initially told Braly he could use gender-neutral restrooms, but Braly felt this was an inconvenience.
Braly filed a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights in the Department of Justice because the school did not let him use women’s restrooms. Upon receiving the complaint, the DOJ sent a letter to the university which resulted in the school reversing its policy.
”I disagree with allowing a male to use the female restrooms,” said Amanda Shook, a senior. “Even if they are a transgendered person, they are still a man, and should have to use the men’s restroom.”
Braly has also complained about housing issues. He claims the school will not allow him to room with males on campus. And it won’t allow him to room with females either.
The situation has made Braly “highly depressed.”
Braly is currently anatomically male, but he is raising money online for a sex reassignment surgery.
“Everyone is so concerned with whats between my legs. I am just as much woman as anyone else,” wrote Braly on the donations page.
