Philippines university banned same-sex relationships and cross-dressing


The University of Santo Tomas (UST)’s new code of conduct, which attendees must sign, states that anyone students in gay couples will face “Non-Readmission, Exclusion or Expulsion.” And that fact, that this is a Catholic university, did not safe it from coming under fire for such a decision. the Enrollment Conforme was released by one of the oldest universities in Asia, as social media posts show, a couple of weeks ago. The post, which has now attracted more than 11,000 retweets and likes, pointed out the limiting and anti-gay parts of a contract, which is obligatory to be signed by any applicant to the university. The Manila-based institution, which is more than 400 years old, bans “cohabiting without the benefit of marriage, or engaging in relationship contrary to the principles adhered to by the University and the teachings of the Catholic Church.” The contract also tells students, at length, to wear only those clothes that would be appropriate for the gender that they were assigned at birth. Male students are not allowed to wear earrings, and other accessories ordinarily used by females.”
