I'm a student at RIT but unlike a lot of other students I'm a trans woman. What that means is that I was assigned male at birth but later recognized that I am not male, and I am not a man. This took 21 years for me to assert and I have suffered for many years while trying to figure why I felt so badly. Today I often dream about how much better my life would be if someone had just told me about trans women when I was younger. Restricting the distribution of the May issue is an act of bigotry which seeks to deny young people the knowledge they need to seek happiness. On top of this it violates the accepted bylaws of the Reporter and is in clear opposition to the will of the students.
