Southwest Texas Junior College in Uproar over 51 y.o. Transgender Woman Moving into Girls Dorm

A 51-year-old transgender woman has moved into an all-girls dormitory at Southwest Texas Junior College in Uvalde, prompting concerns from other residents who say they’re scared of her.

“It’s not even about the gender. It’s that he’s built like a man, so he’s automatically going to be stronger than us,” one of the residents told Fox 29 in San Antonio.

 ABC 12 reported that Gellar’s request to live in the all-girls dorm had been denied by the school Friday. School officials also say Gellar will be restricted to men’s restrooms on campus. Gellar says she has no problem with the dorm decision but believes the restroom restriction may be a violation of her rights, and she plans to circulate a petition.
