Well, if Harvard decrees it, it must be true, yes?
Well, maybe not.
According to the Office of BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard College, not only is it the case that “gender is fluid and changing,” but gender is something that can actually “change from day to day.”
As reported by the website Campus Reform, these curious ideas are among the many that can be found in a new school guide on the topic of sex, gender, and all of that “stuff.”
The guide is filled with all sorts of notions about gender identity being what it is on the basis of self-perception. Apparently, the only conclusion at which one can arrive is that it is not only possible, but perfectly reasonable, for a person to essentially “be” male one day, female the next, and even a third, undefined option the day after that.
The guide also charges students with the responsibility of getting “the facts about gender diversity.”
So it’s a fact that “gender is fluid and changing?” That’s a fact?
The guide also declares that “transphobic misinformation is a form of systemic violence.” In other words, if someone refers to another using a female pronoun because that person clearly looks to be female…but the subject in question has decided that she is really a man that day, then the user of the female pronoun has committed an act of violence.
On a not entirely unrelated note, the annual cost to attend Harvard as a student is a little over $63,000 (tuition, room, board, and fees). Just something to keep in mind as you’re digesting all of this.
