A Question from Hamilton College

My daughter went to Colgate College in Hamilton, New York and we stayed near Hamilton College near Clinton, New York. I am a fan of both Alexander Hamilton and DeWitt Clinton, therefore, I notice Hamilton news, and this comment got to me.

We, the Students of Hamilton College, demand the end of the inevitable tokenization of all marginalized bodies at Hamilton College. Hamilton College cannot continue to overwhelmingly perpetuate narratives that center whiteness, able-bodied individuals, colonization, heteronormativity, and cisnormativity.  The faculty, administration, staff, and student body at Hamilton College almost ubiquitously encompass a single population that continues the exclusion of historically underrepresented communities. 

What is this? Cisnormativity? Must have something to do with sexual identity as that is the big issue on campus today, My mother used to say you could change your gender by kissing your elbow. Maybe that’s the solution to that issue.
