Harvard claimed that gender is fluid and can even change on a daily basis, according to Campus Reform.
The school-funded office for BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard University distributed a flyer, telling students that "for many people—cis and trans—gender expression, identity and self-understanding can change from day to day."
Gender is expressed through one's "speech, mannerisms, clothing" and more, the flyer claims.
Furthermore: "Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same."
The student organization claims biological characteristics do not match "gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy and/or how one is perceived in daily life."
This is not the university's first run-in with divisive transgender issues.
Students at the liberal university protested a free-speech bus that toured campus last month.
Joseph Grabowski, director of communications for the National Organization for Marriage, said the bus was touring East Coast cities as part of a campaign to promote "a renewed policy debate [on transgender issues] that tries to accommodate for everyone,"
The bus reportedly had "It's Biology: Boys are boys ... and always will be. Girls are girls ... and always will be. You can't change sex," on the side.
The BGLTQ organization—the same one who created the flyer—asked students who walked by to sign a protest banner and tell the bus it was not welcome on campus.
"Unfortunately, it's a very one-sided policy debate right now because of the fact that the noisy minority has been able to shout down the other side," Grabowski said.
