In turn, the CSU experiences trickle down demand: as in-state students are turned away from the UC, they apply to (particularly) the more prestigious CSU campuses, where demand also outstrips supply. Indeed, since 2008 between 20,000 and 25,000 qualified students have been denied admission to the CSU system due to lack of institutional capacity. This "impaction" now affects six full campuses including Fresno, Fullerton, Long Beach, San Diego, San Jose and San Luis Obispo.

They argue that Title IX was always about sex, never about gender. They state that transgender rights are matters for states to decide, not the federal government. The first rationale is not supported by fact; the second contradicts practices long associated with T...
