For quite a long time, if you wanted to find people different than men, you’d look for women. But these days, a wider net can be cast.
Hence, a growing number of American colleges are no longer celebrating Women’s History Month. Instead, they’re promoting a prostate-permissive womxn’s March.
As noted by Campus Reform, among the institutions X-ing out XX exclusion are John Jay College of Criminal Justice, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB), Rider University, and Westhampton College.
Rider University’s website spells it out:
The spelling “womxn” is used to respect the dynamic and fluid nature of gender identity and expression and to be inclusive of all people who identify as women in today’s times.
Westhampton College’s contemporary commemoration will include dual assemblies of the Transfeminine Social Support Group:
Regardless of your unique journey, we can all support each other in a safe, caring, and validating environment. … Transition leads people down varying paths/phases, and each [is] more easily accomplished with support. Regardless of your path, YOU ARE TRANS ENOUGH!
John Jay College of Criminal Justice is heralding ten “John Jay Heroines.” The school hopes its “moving tributes (will) uplift [the] community and encourage others to applaud the dedicated womxn in their lives.”
And CSUSB is hosting a storied extravaganza:
Cal State San Bernardino is honoring Womxn’s History Month throughout March with a series of events and keynote speakers. This year’s theme is “Celebrating and Telling Our Stories” to amplify the voices of diverse womxn and recognize their contributions across various sectors and disciplines.
A variety of events, including the highly anticipated Womxn’s Leadership Conference on Wednesday, March 22, are planned. The kick-off event is scheduled for Thursday, March 2, in the Santos Manuel Student Union East, Obershaw Dining Center at 11 a.m.
Fight the patriarchal power:
At CSUSB we intentionally spell “womxn” with an “x” as an objection to the patriarchal idea that womxn are an extension to men and the inclusion of all womxn go beyond just cis-women.
Indeed — as one mid-month event indicates, the bell of male dominion has rung for too long. California State is defying that dong:

Back to Women’s History Month, CSUSB outlines its origin:
In 1980, a consortium of women’s groups and historians – led by the National Women’s History Project (now the National Women’s History Alliance) – successfully lobbied for national recognition. In February 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first Presidential Proclamation declaring the Week of March 8, 1980, as National Women’s History Week (National Women’s History Museum). In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity.
Given that the annual observance was meant to restrict who it revered, is relaxing the requirements for womanhood in keeping with Women’s History Month’s ideals?
It is now.
Maybe the 31-day endeavor will eventually welcome mxn. Either way, this March is for lxdies xnly.
