"Transgendered Student Caught In Dormitory Dilemma"

Though this story takes place a bit west of San Antonio, I have to include it because of the strangeness at the base of it!
UVALDE, Texas -- Her admission to Southwest Texas Junior College in Jennifer Gellar's hometown of Uvalde is not the issue.

Willie Edwards, SWTJC spokesman, said what is still "under review" is which dormitory the transgendered student will be moving into when classes begin next Monday.

The campus of 1,700 students has a coed dorm and another for women.

Formerly John Brigman, who said he served in the U.S. Navy and in military police Reserves, now 51 years old, Gellar said "going over to the female side," resulted in a medical discharge from the military in 2008.

Now in her final year at the two-year college, Gellar said she would feel safer living in the women's dorm.

"Actually, I'm afraid of men," Gellar said.

Wow! How weird is that?

There's actually a college in Uvalde!

Man, I didn't realize much of anything was in Uvalde!

There's a bit less, now.

I thought it was weird that a 51 year old is living in the dorm, period.
