Campus Reform reports:
Yale students can now select from THREE gender options
Students at Yale University can now change their registered gender status to “non-binary” through the school’s Student Information System.
Yale University announced through an email that students can now register to identify their gender as “non-binary,” as a result of policy changes for the school regarding transgender individuals on campus, according to the Yale Daily News. Students can log on to the school’s Student Information System and choose from three gender choices: “M” for male, “F” for female, or “N” for nonbinary.
The new policy is in response to a petition, launched in November, from Yale’s LGBT community to President Peter Salovey. The petition called on the university to offer more rights for transgender students at Yale. The petition came in the wake of the Department of Health and Human Services’ plans to change the rules of Title IX to refer to gender as an unchangeable trait.
Including the nonbinary gender option, according to Dean of Yale College Marvin Chun, is being utilized for Yale and the technology at the school “catch up with current understanding and practice of gender,” according to the Yale Daily News. But some students voiced concerns about not removing any reference to the gender binary.
