This year, we have chosen to drop the name “Princess Layout” and call ourselves Dartmouth Womxn’s Ultimate. The term “womxn” originated in the 1970s and is currently seeing a resurgence in use. It is used to represent groups that have a connection to the category of “woman” but are inclusive of trans and non-binary identities. We use this term because it represents that we play in the women’s division, but also that we have no identity restrictions on being a member of the team. Both cisgender and transgender women are included in the term “women,” but non-binary and trans-masculine identities are not; enforcing the use of “women” is a mis-gendering of those identities. So while we are made up of primarily cisgender women, “womxn” better represents and respects the athletes on our team who are not women. Dartmouth has enforced a policy disallowing the use of this term for our team in any public setting, but we are committed to changing this policy and representing our teammates respectfully.
