Transcending Trans Lodging January 23, 2023

Posted by geoff in News.

RedState tells about Ithaca College’s latest housing innovation:

At New York’s Ithaca College, a specialized housing provision has been made. Established in 1892, the institution is keeping up with the times. Hence, its “Open Pages” residential community.

If you’re something other than “cisgender,” you’ll be right at home at the 20-bed facility.

From Ithaca.edu:

Open Pages is a transgender and nonbinary RLC (Residence Learning Community). The goal of Open Pages is to provide an inclusive space for non-cis identifying students and to create a supportive community on campus comprised of students that have a shared experience.

As nice as this may sound to transgender folk at Ithaca, I suspect the bloom will fall off that rose pretty quickly. After all, a good deal of the attraction of becoming transgender is the attention and accommodations you can demand from non-trans folk. Hard to feel special or to guilt people into getting your way when you’re surrounded by people with the same status.

I give it 6 months and then it’ll fade away.

Bet. Grew up in Ithaca and it’s a freak haven.
