An Oberlin College student is highly perturbed that “cisgender male” maintenance workers were permitted to install radiators in a dorm reserved for “women and transgendered persons”

In the op-ed pages of The Oberlin Review, Peter Fray-Witzer says Baldwin Cottage got an email about the radiators from Coordinator for Multicultural and Identity-Based Communities Josh Matos on October 7: “Contractors will be entering rooms between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. to install the radiators.”

Fray-Witzer says he was unaware of any pending installations, but even worse — the maintenance crews were “more than likely to be cisgender men” who would be invading his “personal space” at that of his dorm mates.

I can't imagine any sane parents sending a kid to Oberlin, any more. Once upon a time, it had a fine reputation, but that was before its administration hired people consumed with ugly prejudices.

Being trans clearly isn't a mental illness. Nope. No way. Perfectly normal except born in the wrong body....

Sounds like they ignorantly assumed the workers genders. Did they do a penis check or ask the workers their daily chosen gender?

This did cross my mind...

Seems a bit rude to assume that these workers all ID as men.

What exactly did he think would happen when these penis-having men came to install a radiator? SOMEBODY has been watching way too much gang rape porn.

Time to hand out blankies and tell "Women & Trans Collective" people that some butt-hurt student triggered the male maintenance workers.

If they are so disgusted by cis gender maintenence men, perhaps they outbto take responsibility for cleaning women's bathrooms too and empty their own fucking cherry picker boxes too. Surely it's just as offensive to ask cis gendered men to deal with their nasty bathroom habits and dirty tampon boxes but it happens all the time with mainrenence being highly populated with men. People are stupid. Pick a petty fight and pay. I find it highly amusing to know that petties like these get paid back silently with toilets, mirrors and floors mopped with the same mop and other custodial and maintenence shenanigans.

I'm sure there's enough hot air in that dorm.
