so i personally want to take the time to apologize and make an official “statement” about my views regarding trans men at wellesley.
in the past, i have been really adamant about wellesley being a safe space for people of all marginalized gender identities, and have been adamant in calling it a historically woman’s college. i want to apologize, because i was acting in the interest of preserving a hurtful system of privileging masculinity that benefits me, as a transmasculine person. i would like to make it clear that my feelings have changed: i do not think that trans men belong at wellesley, and i will no longer be calling it a historically women’s college. no, this doesn’t mean that i think that all trans men should be kicked out of wellesley or necessarily denied admission. before you jump down my throat, let me explain.
