Transgender Student Fights for Right to Be an R.A.

March 23, 2012
 

Kaeden Kass is angry that Miami University in Ohio will not let him work as a resident assistant in a men's dormitory, WLWT News reported. Kass identifies as a man, but he was born a woman. The university offered him a position as an R.A. in a women's suite, but he has rejected that, saying it reflects a bias against him as a transgendered student. A university spokeswoman declined to comment on Kass, citing confidentiality requirements. But the spokeswoman noted that the university does offer some gender-neutral housing for transgender students or others who may want the option.
