Morehouse College broke with its all-male tradition by voting to open enrollment to females who identify as males. The historically Black college voted on Saturday to approve a gender identity policy, but the school will continue to ban male-to-female transgenders.

David A. Thomas, the president of Morehouse, said the decision to open enrollment to females who identify as males was in line with the college's need to bring greater awareness of gender identity and to clarify the policy.

"We found that when our admission representatives were going out, oftentimes people would ask them, 'Does Morehouse admit transgender people'?" he said, according to the New York Times.

The new policy states that "once admitted, students are expected to continue to self-identify as men throughout their matriculation."

If a biological male student transitions to identify as female, he will be asked to leave the college.

Similarly, if a male-identified student falls pregnant or identifies as female, that student will be asked to leave the school.

Former President Barack Obama's administration broadened the protections of sex and gender under federal guidelines. Public schools that failed to comply with Obama's transgender policies were threatened with the loss of federal funding.

However, the Trump administration rolled back Obama's transgender policies to define gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth. Those who have male genitals should male restrooms while those with female genitals will use female restrooms.

Morehouse announced its new policy a day after the United States military implemented its new policy for transgender troops. They are allowed to enlist as long as they present as the gender/sex they were "assigned" at birth. They are also not allowed to transition to a different gender while in the military.

  • Rayne

    Well she’s still a female. A female who dresses male. Not a man pretending to be a woman so ????

  • WinterIsComing

    I know the alumni are probably not too happy about this. I wonder if Spelman will follow suit. ? My ex was a Morehouse man in the 80s. He took me to Homecoming with him. He was surprised to see so many feminine and flat out openly gay men on campus.

    Almighty bless everyone that goes to school to find a job, just to find a job to pay for school.

  • Phillybruh

    The all female college is doing the same in accepting male to female. Why would a male to female want to stay at this college.

  • Guess Who

  • CookieMobster

    We truly are in the end of days.

  • Phillybruh

    People have been saying that for years, when is the last day so I can prepare.

  • Just Me

    Money is probably the biggest motivation behind this, then LGBTXYZ pressure. Wonder do they to have underwent the full transition. Will she still have a snatch around all these men. Hmmm....?

  • CookieMobster

    IDK bruh! All I can say is always be prepared.

  • TriniHarlem

    Slippery slope and the alumni at least class of 94 is not happy. I would be very annoyed. Actually I'm pre annoyed.

    In other news, allegedly Kevin aka Kelvin Hunter (Wendy Williams soon to be ex-husband) is bisexual. How you doin? *in my Wendy Williams voice, lol.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    IDGAF ... hell I got all my degrees .... I feel people in general should be able to get knowledge anywhere .... I just don't care about this .... Guess I will keep my opinion to myself https://media0.giphy.com/media/E9mKtFYH2uUMM/giphy.gif

  • therealashland

    So we going to ignore the bigger issue,.... mental health? I mean I’m gay - gay. I fully accept the fact I am female and I have no desire to be a man. I don’t act or carry myself as one, I don’t answer to any male pronouns,. Why because I am a woman, I love being one just as I love other women.

    I mean I just think it’s odd, because at the end of the day, unless you can bust a nut and get another woman pregnant you’re still a woman, you’re just playing dress up and pretending to be something you will never physically be, again the bigger issue here is mental health

  • Phillybruh

    I'm gay aswell, but I also recognize that transgender is far different than gay.

  • Vegas1989

    We just came out of the bisexual post to this female to male post to get into Morehouse. Just go to school, get a job and be whoever you want behind closes doors. I feel like everyday we are force to accept something that in not REAL....God made me to be with a man or by myself....Not no other chick....At the end of the day you are who you are and I'm not going to judge you but just don't push it down my throat..,..

  • TriniHarlem

    Oh and I keep the same energy for trans boys doing sports catered to women. No damn different. Men as well as women should have their spaces that's strictly their own. Why must we force a square peg in a circle is beyond me. Trans been getting an education so that's not the issue.

  • TransMichelle

    Morehouse (like many HBCUs) is having financial difficulties anyway. I wouldn't be surprised if they start letting in goats and sh*t if it will get them a few extra dollars.

    I remma when they let men into one of our long time all women's colleges and baybeeeee it was pure outrage. old coworker of mine was like I went to Peace College for women. Not no damn William Peace University that is now co-ed. She was a legacy too. Her, her mom, her grandmother, all her aunts and most of her cousins. They gave big ass money and then cut they asses OFF. They gotta think about stuff like that. Without alumni dollars a lot of schools go under.

  • Vegas1989

    I'm going to need you to log off for 1 hour. You almost made me choke on my Pop Tart......LOL....My office mate makes fun of me because it's an Organic non-frosted Pop Tart.....LOL...I like it and I can afford it...I will email you when your time out is up.....Have a great day....

  • TriniHarlem

    Alumni is strong with Morehouse and the older heads aren't happy. I don't understand the thirst for this. It's an ALL MALE BORN WITH A DCK SCHOOL. Why this issue and not other pressing issues is beyond me. I'm annoyed

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    ? Mental illness is the elephant in the room that everyone prefers to ignore.

  • Elevated Soul

    Huuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnny......This is that foolish Obama agenda. Why can't that woman go to a college that's either unisex or just for females because that is what she is.

  • Li-Wright

    I'm curious to read the discussion here. Morehouse is an elite college and one of the goals is for the young men to find a FEMALE mate. Not just to get an education. Also to connect with prominent alumni. So if you throw transg. in the mix, how will the other "male" students treat the odd one out?
    Most transg. anyway go to community colleges & voc. ed schools, because they feel more welcome.

  • Marlika

    I’m so disgusted by this. ?????

  • Li-Wright

    I read that about Kev too. Hmmmm....that may have been what set WW off. I mean, she put up with the second woman for years. But when this news hit about Kev's bi-sex, I just wonder if that was the end for WW?

  • WinterIsComing

    Not surprised ?????

  • Li-Wright

    Morehouse and Spellman have strong alumni. I'm sure several are gay, but transgender? I don't think so. The students go to school to find a mate or spouse....this won't fly IMO. And you may get black boys and girls NOT enrolling in the school. They may elect to go to Howard,etc.

  • Elevated Soul

    You and these damn gifs have me falling out laughing!

  • UsuallyItsBusiness25

    Because everyone wants to ignore that gender doesn’t equal sexuality . Gay is a sexuality . Gender is another topic . I wish people would take your stance and stop meshing the two .

    Take this, we can change where we are from by moving . Americans can become Canadians by moving. But when someone try to change their race it’s defined as sickening.
    Same concept , different area .

  • Gloria

    Who cares. More white people are going to HBCUs now. If a trans person wants to get their education from this elite school and they are accepted, good for them. There’s outrage over everything nowadays.

  • Hazel

    Trust and believe Morehouse's power is still on point. If it wasn't, Harvard alums wouldn't be running it, and I wouldn't be peeling off 50k a year.

    Well said. Transgenderism was recognized by the psychiatric establishment as a mental disorder for a long time, before it became politically incorrect to do so. Now we're supposed to pretend that that kind of behavior is perfectly "normal". smh

    So what will happen when the men are walking around pregnant??? The world is sick.

  • Guest

    This won't end well. Anywho, new post!

  • Phillybruh

    Why would a transgender on hormones end up pregnant?

  • currvalicious

    These trans make me so damn sick. Guess that's it for Morehouse being an all-male college. This is disgusting & shameful. I guess Spelman will allow men identifying as women in soon enough. As another blogger stated, this won't end well. AT ALL.

  • Kimocha

    "The Trump administration rolled back Obama's transgender policies to define gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth."
    This is one thing I agree with Trump 100% and the one thing I DIDN'T agree with Obama on bc I knew it was gonna start a huge mess!.. SMDH!!!

  • currvalicious

    Lmao!!!!! Too funny....right. They don't give AF, so long as the money's coming in.

  • Phillybruh

    Why do yall care? What this colleges policy is, you aren't going to this college.

  • chan chan

    Happens all the time.

  • WinterIsComing

    Omg. That interview...I’m disgusted.

  • Dreadboi

    That day will never happen. The alumnia will fight that its only male centric places that are only targeted..Got to get rid of the toxic masculinity affecting society and women advancement..Only a matter of time before you see women players in male sports due to equal pay discrimination gender discrimination etc etc..

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I believe Spellman already allows male-to-female transgenders.

    It's Auntie's obsession.

  • kennedy220

    They find female mates and still hook up with men on the DL so I mean what difference does it make at this point...just saying

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    trust me with all this foolishness it is coming!

  • TamG

    So sad. This place used to pride itself on growing “boys into men.” A too-rare positive bright spot that seemed immune to the increasingly-degrading culture. But no longer. Everyone knows what happens to a people when the men are not strong—the community perishes. My soul aches for this community.

  • Curtis

    Sad day for black men in America. These HBCUs are mainly ran by Africans and Immigrants from Caribbean who would care less about black American Institutions. All they care about is money not the history and legacy. Obama opened a can of filthy worms and all our institutions are in jeopardy. Black churches will be wedding two dudes in the alter and give them holy communion. The things which makes Jesus my savior puke. Conservative black people are under attack.

  • Guest©

    That may have been the straw that broke the camel's back, lol. My takeaway from all these celebrity gossip stories is money doesn't equate happiness.

  • Guest©

    Lol

  • Guest©

    That was an "interesting" interview. The lover said he's an hermaphrodite?!?

  • Li-Wright

    Is the Chancellor gay? boy oh boy. I remember the day when black girls went to Spellman to meet the Morehouse men. What is wrong with black America? Why are we having and raising gay men?

  • Li-Wright

    The alumni can show their "non-support" by not giving to the college. Moorehouse will get the message.
    BTW, Spellman took Bill Cosby's big endowment and then erased his name from the records. Cos should have asked for his money back.

  • NewNew

    My mouth literally fell open while watching that interview. Literally. Wow, just wow.

  • WinterIsComing

    Blew my mind! 1) Kelvin was in the dirty dookie shoot. 2) The man sold his asshole, mouth and dignity for fame. 3) The man has a WIFE that is fine with his lifestyle 4) Nikki cheats 5) Kelvin and WW don’t screw...it was a lot!

  • Phillybruh

    Not while on those hormones, they would have to come off them.

  • Phillybruh

    You said that the last two stories about trannies and nem...lol

    Yeah when they get with their spouses and desire a kids. They get pregnant some kind of way (whatever way they chose) and have a baby. Yeah, its not unheard of. Its just not something we see everyday.

  • Mister Fantastic

    You can thank Obama for this...

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    Because this is lunacy! The 1 percents feelings seem to outweigh the 99 percent's facts and reality. If I am anorexic, I will be treated for my delusions, thinking and feeling I am overweight when I am NOT. If I were trans racial, I would be looked at as insane, believing I am one race when clearly I am not. Men are born men and women are born women which is fact! You cannot change biology which is fact. You cannot force your lifestyle unto others which is what this is. Maybe people would have more respect and acceptance if we weren't frowned upon for not indulging in someone's delusions. God made us smarter than this...

  • Eileen

    It saddens me as well. the dark forces do not want bm to succeed in any form or fashion. I do not accept the lgbt??? What has it brought to our community? Nothing but confusion and delusion! but some of us are foolish enough to embrace this mess while our community is falling apart exactly the way globalsts and democrats want us too.

  • Eileen

    Thank God Trump was good for something!

  • Eileen

    Spelman has already started! smh...this was obama's bs to the black community because we were the last stronghold against this unGodly lifestyle

  • Parent

    Whatever

  • Eileen

    Once again black folks accepting any and everything in our community. This is not good at all. Thanks for nothing obama all of this bs came under your watch. You didnt like black people anyway!

    Ok, although , I don't put no man above God, this was going to happen rather Obama was in office or not, some of these comments wear me thin about him. He did what ALL president s have done, and will do, it's called self-fulfilling prophecy....

  • chan chan

    Listen I’m not gonna go back and forth about what she males are actively taking their mones. Screenshot what I’m saying because it will happen. There will be pregnant men walking around on campus. U can’t fight biology.

  • Leigh Burton

    I am waiting for the first Man Of Morehouse to give birth. This transgender rights thing is getting out of hand!

  • Leigh Burton

    Then accept girly girls who never wear pants into Morehouse! That would make it fair!

  • Leigh Burton

    It would be weird if you are at Morehouse and accidentally see your roommate get out of the shower and find out that he is a sexy biological woman under those baggy pants and big shirt!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Interesting!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    From what I have heard from the older generation who went to Spelman and Clark is that a LOT Morehouse men were gay back in the day just in that BIG closet?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    So its dry too! Glad you are ok ??

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Not surprised because he looks like he can take a hard one to the jaw and handle it like a pro???

  • Ms. Cree

    I agree

  • EMILY POST

    Wow so Moorehouse is no longer a male college.

  • TheOwley

    So this is the ONLY way they will give admissions to women. Wow. Is Spellman taking MTF students too.

  • TheOwley

    OT: What the heck Sandra. This is worthy of print. "Ohio Democrat Drafts Amendment Seeking To Make Black Babies Exempt From Pro-Life Law."

  • Myopinion

    I totally disagree with this, they will lose a lot of potential students. I guess Spellman will follow suit...smdh. HBCU's are broke when compared and attendance is already lower than many other brands of institutions.

  • Trill Did It Again!

    I am totally convicted that Barack Obama is a gay man ... Thanks Obama !
