Gay midtown Atlanta has long since annexed Morehouse. They share the same liberal culture.

Have you seen Dr. Steve Perry on there? Our country would be much better without pricks like that in it. He wants to shove a perverted and unnatural form of masculinity on people. The only way to stop this is to boycott the univerisity and refuse to hire anyone who graduated from there. They are not taught what they need to learn. They are taught to be bullies, pricks, uptight, commies, etc. It is not his business what others are wearing. If he doesn't like what others are wearing, he should get therapy, lock himself in a closet, or simply leave the planet. Down with Anti-American corporate rich trash like that.

How many transvestites could there really be at Moorehouse?

This sounds like one of those solutions for a non-existent problem.

Now, now. It's understandable since Dr. Steve Perry can't compete with the reported five fresh, yummy trans undergraduates. Dr. Perry is no spring chicken anymore, you know.

And no sunglasses in class. Oh boy, Olay Age Defying Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream sales in the Atlanta area are going to go through the cabaret roof with this new policy....

Maybe they should introduce petticoat discipline rather than banning cross-dressing. If the students were in touch with their "feminine side" they might be less likely to commit crimes.

As the overwhelming majority of black men are homophobic to the extreme, I can't believe a cross-dresser would survive very long at all on Morehouse's campus. I agree, it's a solution in search of a problem.

The rest of the dress code (no pun intended) is long overdue. The "thug" look needs to go back to the thugs whereas Morehouse Men should act, speak, dress and look like Morehouse Men.

But did you see the news video? Guys in blouses and ladies sandals. But it was only a group of 4-5 gay students and not a serious problem. But how can they deal with them if there is no policy against it? And the rest, while I see no harm with hats and sunglasses indoors, most people are tired of seeing the pants down. A friend of mine in Arkansas told me the real reason for the sagging pants. It is the provide easier access to the genitalia. She says about every week, there is always someone wearing their pants like that who flashes her. With the pants already down, it is easier for them to flip it out.

The first thug got double life sentences, plus. I hope he lives to be a hundred. 75 years in prison will get very boring.
