Lola Is Not Welcome

Must be an interesting student body at Morehouse College in Atlanta:

An all-male college in Atlanta, Georgia, has banned the wearing of women's clothes, makeup, high heels and purses as part of a new crackdown on what the institution calls inappropriate attire...

The policy also bans wearing hats in buildings, pajamas in public, do-rags, sagging pants, sunglasses in class and walking barefoot on campus...

The dress-wearing ban is aimed at a small part of the private college's 2,700-member student body, said Dr. William Bynum, vice president for Student Services.

"We are talking about five students who are living a gay lifestyle that is leading them to dress a way we do not expect in Morehouse men," he said...

Those breaking the policy will not be allowed to go to class unless they change. Chronic dress-code offenders could be suspended from the college.

Why would someone want to go to Morehouse and not present himself as a "Morehouse man"? It's sad that adults need a rule like what is linked in the 2nd paragraph above, but good for the school for imposing it.

Good for the college for taking a stand, but, no doubt, there will be an outcry from the gay community who will claim discrimination.
