No Special Treatment at the Catholic University of Korea

Cathy Rose A. Garcia and Kang Shin-who report on a graduate student who "is on the brink of expulsion... because of his sexual orientation" — Catholic Univ. to expel gay Filipino.

But the authors later quote a school official as saying, "Many students are inconvenienced and are feeling unpleasant with the student, who has been trying to use the ladies’ restroom. We never treated him unfairly because of his sexual orientation but he just caused a problem, which troubles our school students."

The school official explained that as the "student’s scholarship is tied to his work as assistant staff at the English-dormitory, the scholarship is also being revoked." Thus, "the student cannot study at CUK if he has to leave the dormitory and the school cannot give him any special treatment."

Sigh! I actually know someone like this, a sophomore in a local university. He dropped by the tutorial centre where I used to work (and where he used to study). A lot of the high school students were happy to see him again, and they all made so much noise that I called out, "Boys! Keep it down."

At that, he turned to me and said, "Excuse me! I'm not a boy."
