All-male college cracks down on cross-dressing [CNN]

All-male college cracks down on cross-dressing - CNN.com:
"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.

No dress-wearing is part of a larger dress code launched this week that Morehouse College is calling its 'Appropriate Attire Policy.'

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

However, it is the ban on cross-dressing that has brought national attention to the small historically African-American college. Video Watch students react to the new dress code »

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."

If you're giving money to Morehouse's Endowment, kindly tell them your checkbook is closed unless they back off.
