Would this potentially zee Zeta Phi Beta running afoul of inclusiveness requirements contained in student codes of conduct at various institutions?

Would CIS women who were initiated and later became men be automatically forced to resign?

Read the statement: Zeta Phi Beta Statement on Transgender membership

They require that in order to receive an invitation AND hold membership, the person must be a cisgender woman.

Except their definition of female is CIS gender and not trans. So if they don't recognize a trans woman as female, then I think it's arguable that their policy would inadvertently mean someone born as female is always female.

"Zeta acknowledged that their current membership “already includes transgender women,” noting that “they have always been entitled to the same rights, privileges and responsibilities as any other member and shall retain the rights, privileges and responsibilities they were endowed with once they took the oath and became a member.”

“To be clear,” the organization wrote in the statement, “there is no ban.”"
