The other thing that makes me happy about Mount Holyoke's public endorsement of trans inclusion is that it suggests the college has finally dropped its mistaken belief that admitting transgender women would somehow cause the college to lose their federal funding under Title IX (an argument that is belied by the fact that Title IX does not even apply to the the admissions practices of private undergraduate institutions). It seemed to me that Mount Holyoke was the public voice of this argument and that it was impervious to attempts at correction. So I'm not only glad to see Mount Holyoke adopt an inclusive admissions policy, I'm also happy to see an end to its misplaced blame on Title IX.
