Female Students Sue University Of Wyoming For Admitting Transgender Woman Into Their Sorority House


The University of Wyoming is being sued by a group of girls after the school accepted a transgender female into their sorority, reports the New York Post. Seven Kappa Kappa Gamma house sisters say they felt uncomfortable by the new admittee on multiple occasions says a lawsuit attained by the Associated Press. 

The unidentified group of women moved forward to sue the school as well as a 21-year-old new member, Artemis Langford, who joined the chapter back in Sept. 2022. The lawsuit claims that the women felt uncomfortable with Langford, who is referred to under a male alias Terry Smith in the lawsuit. The lawsuit says Langford reportedly stared at the group members for hours without speaking. The suit said,

“One sorority member walked down the hall to take a shower, wearing only a towel. She felt an unsettling presence, turned, and saw Mr. Smith watching her silently.” 

The woman claimed they were pressured to induct Langford into the house by higher-ups of the sorority. 

The plaintiff’s claims were shut down by the executive director of the sorority, Kari Kittrell Poole. Poole informed the Associated Press that the suit

“contains numerous false allegations,”

without being specific. She went on to say that the sorority doesn’t condone discrimination against gender identity. 

However, the lawsuit said that Langford acted inappropriately around her sorority sisters and one time

“had an erection visible through his leggings.”

The group of women is requesting for the judge to revoke Langford’s sorority membership and

“to award unspecified damages.”
