Transgender Student Expelled by California Baptist U.

October 31, 2011

Domaine Javier, who identifies as female although she is biologically male, was expelled this fall by California Baptist University, The Press-Enterprise reported. The university declined to comment about the case, but university documents sent to Javier accuse her of engaging in fraud by concealing her identity. Javier told the newspaper that she believed she was being truthful when she told the university she is female, and that she has identified that way since she was a toddler. "I didn’t do anything wrong,” she said. "They said, 'On your application form you put female.' And I was like, 'Yeah, that’s how I see myself.' "
