Nose jobs are still on your own dime. But if you are enrolled at one of five New Jersey universities and are a woman seeking a male appendage or a male seeking removal of the same, the school has your back — er, front.
Campus Reform reports that the five schools in question — the College of New Jersey (TCNJ), Rowan University, Montclair State University (MSU), Kean University, and Rutgers University — “will now be funding genital reconstructive surgery and other sex reassignment benefits through a new university-backed healthcare package.”
The schools join “a growing list of colleges and universities that will offer the additional services for transgender students.” Said services include counseling and hormone therapy.
Each of the schools involved has specified conditions that students must meet to be eligible for sex change services.
For example, at Rutgers, candidates must satisfy diagnostic criteria for gender identity dysphoria, be 18 or older for irreversible surgical interventions, and undego 12 months of “successful continuous full-time real life experience in the desired gender” (whatever that means). Their treatment plan, moreover, must conform to World Professional Association for Transgender Health Association (WPATH) standards.
There is no mention of parental advice or consent, even though students under 21 years of age are minors.
