This story is one for the history books…It was the summer of 2014 when two Michigan State University students, “Nathan” and “Melanie” agreed to meet and have sex. About a year later, Melanie began taking hormones in order to transition to a man. Her transition was one of the reasons she filed a Title IX complaint against Nathan, 16 months after the incident. “Transitioning was one of the driving elements for why I reported, because I felt uncomfortable using the men’s restrooms in my residential college, for fear that I would encounter him.” After months of costly appeals, what is Nathan’s sanction? A no-contact order along with a finding that Nathan violated MSU’s policy on sexual conduct. His transcript will forever state that he was guilty of an unspecified sex offense.
