Transsexual graduate to get new Dutch diploma

Transsexual graduate to get new Dutch diploma.

This is one of those “who gives a crap?” stories but I found it interesting.

Apparently, Justus Eisfeld got his diploma from a Dutch university in 2001.  The only twist, he was a she but is now a he, and his name was actually her name on the diploma.  So he/she/it sued because the university was discriminating against him/her/it because they wouldn’t change his/hers/its name to his/hers/its new name.

Oh, and his/her/oh hell who cares, degree?  Political science.  Kind of explains a lot don’t it?

    Thanks Fleece for bringing a little humor into what has otherwise been a bummer of a day. S510 passed hands down.

      That sucks. This lame duck congress should go down in history as the most shameless bunch ever.
