Kansas State Diversity Fail

The Student Senate at Kansas State University at Salina has rejected a request to fund a transgender speaker.

Transgender male speaker Ryan Sallans was to speak at the university Nov. 23. But the university's Student Governing Association on Tuesday rejected a request for $1,000 to pay Sallans' fees and expenses.
I went to look for more information on the story and found this bit of ridiculous lolsobbery:
"The senators felt it was a waste of student money, that no students would attend," [Shae Blackwell, student body vice president on the K-State at Salina Student Governing Association] said. "We had 75 people at the meeting and three-fourths were there to support the bill."
Some of whom had come from another campus just for the meeting.

But no one would attend!
