Lawsuit Against University of Wyoming, Citing Privacy Concerns Involving Transgender Student at Kappa Kappa Gamma

Trans Woman's Alleged Voyeurism Ignites Lawsuit at Sorority

A transgender woman who was admitted into a sorority in Wyoming has been accused of making other members uncomfortable, in a lawsuit over her membership. Female sorority students are suing the Kappa Kappa Gamma (KKG) sisterhood over this.

The story, which has gained national spotlight, highlights the importance of ensuring safety and privacy for all students. If the allegations are true, this case underscores the need for educational institutions to establish clear guidelines and boundaries to protect the rights and well-being of every student, regardless of their gender identity. Rather than focusing on exclusion or discrimination, this case could be an opportunity to engage in constructive dialogue and implement appropriate measures to create a respectful and secure environment for all.

The lawsuit alleges that one woman changed her top without wearing a bra while not realizing Langford Smith, the person under question, was in the room staring at her, and other women noted later that Smith had "his hands over his genitals" and has since "repeatedly asked about her romantic attachments. It also claims that Langford (“Smith”) doesn’t live in the house, Langford often will sit on the couch in the second-floor common area, not studying, and watches the women.

If these allegations are not true, it will be deeply concerning and reflects a regressive attitude towards transgender rights. This situation perpetuates harmful stereotypes about transgender individuals, fueling fear and misunderstanding. Instead of fostering inclusivity and empathy, the lawsuit further marginalizes and discriminates against an already vulnerable population. Educational institutions should prioritize creating safe, supportive spaces for all students, regardless of their gender identity

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
