Stephen’s College, America’s second oldest women’s college, has recently issued an email in which it announces changes to its admissions policies. Beginning in the fall of 2019 the formerly all-female institution will begin allowing transgenders to enroll.
Men who are transitioning to female will have the same status and privileges as naturally born females; however, females who are transitioning to males will have to pack their bags and leave at the end of the semester. The college will help them transition to another institution.
The college explains its new policies:
“[Stephens] will also admit and enroll students who were not born female, but who identify and live as women; those students will need to provide legal documentation that they are legally women or that they are transitioning to female. Because the College has expanded its definition of womanhood to include both sex and gender, it is logically consistent that it also acknowledges both sex and gender in its definition of manhood. As a result, the College will stop admitting and enrolling students who were born female but who now identify as men or who are transitioning from female to male. The College will also continue to admit and enroll students who were born female but who identify as non-binary, meaning students who experience their gender identity as falling outside the categories of man and woman. The College will no longer admit or enroll students who identify as non-binary but who are transitioning to male.”
In case the average person is confused, the college goes on to explain its new policies:
“The world’s understanding of and definition of womanhood is changing. Stephens is evolving — just as it always has — to ensure that it continues to provide the extraordinary experience of a Stephens College education to all women who will seek and benefit from it.”
The key to understanding the changes Stephen’s College is advocating lies in its view of itself (and the human race) as “evolving just as it always has.”
It appears we are all to be committed to Hegelianism now, with a bow to Lamarckian evolutionary ideology. The ever-evolving human race, having once self-transitioned from chimps to Neanderthals and upright Cro-Magnons is now transitioning past its binary form of male and female into a new type of being. Transgenders are the prototypes of the newly evolved human.
The key to the transition to a new form of human being or even a post-human being is the triumph of will, which through a dialectical internal process develops a more sophisticated view that transcends older, less developed views of one’s self and of humanity. Internal dialectic reaches a synthesis that is infallible, needing no outside ideas such as the primitive religious concept of human beings made by and reflecting the image of God.
Apparently, we humans no longer require the identification of either male or female as assigned by a Creator. We are on our own to define ourselves or to allow others to define us. As Hegel himself put it, ‘nothing extraneous is introduced.” Dialectics is “the principle through which along immanent coherence and necessity enter into the content of science.”
