Tensions over gender identity and sexual orientation pervade the campuses of hundreds of U.S. Catholic and Protestant universities. The Christian teachings they ascribe to hold that God created humans in unchangeable male and female identities, and sex should only happen within the marriage of a man and a woman. But today’s students are used to far different values. The majority of Christian colleges and universities list “sexual orientation” in their nondiscrimination statements, and half of them also list “gender identity” – a big increase from even a decade ago. But translating that into practice creates struggles affecting most campus life — curriculum, enrollment at single-gender institutions, housing, restroom design, and pronoun use.
