Higher education seems somewhat obsessed with this topic, don’t you think?

California university hosts transgender ‘camp’ retreat for students to ‘explore’ their gender
The University of California, Riverside (UCR) has released a “Trans Guide” on campus to help educate students about transgender issues such as using “Lived/Preferred Names,” medical referrals for hormone replacement therapy, and “Gender-Inclusive” housing and restrooms.
Inside the Trans Guide, students are given a resource called the “Gender Recognition and Lived Name” policy that helps them identify by their “accurate gender identity and lived or preferred name on university-issued documents.”
UCR students are also provided a medical referral list of therapists who can provide “gender-affirming health care” and a “letter of support” if needed for those who wish to see an endocrinologist.
The UCR Student Health Services is also a source for students to find in-network endocrinologists as part of their “trans-inclusive” health insurance plans.
Some of the “gender affirming benefits” offered by the university’s student health care option include “Gender affirming surgery (or reassignment), also known as bottom surgery,” “Top surgery for female to male (FTM) and male to female (MTF),” and “Fertility preservation.”
Additionally, students can receive medical referrals for “counseling and psychology services” with clinicals who may provide letters for accessing “trans-related” health care as part of the UCR insurance plan.
The Trans Guide also features information about the UCR transgender retreat, also known as “T-camp,” where participants can learn about gender-inclusive restrooms, gender-affirming care, and more.
The retreat is described as an opportunity “to explore gender identity and expression and to engage in dialogue with our peers.” “This event is specifically for students who are transgender, nonbinary, or gender questioning,” according to the website.
