The Citadel, Charleston's military college with a rich history reaching back almost two hundred years, is considering allowing an upcoming freshman to break uniform regulations the Washington Post reports.

The upcoming student, a Muslim woman, reportedly wants to be able to wear a hijab while in uniform, and cover any skin when a shorter uniform is required, like when wearing summer or physical fitness uniform. This would be the first time that a uniform exception has been put in place. A senior at the Citadel, Nick Pinelli, wrote an entire Facebook post exposing this farce for what it is. Why should a university, who's core values include discipline and homogeneity, open the door to radical politically correctness?

The Citadel already accepts women and Muslims, and no reports of anyone seeking exemptions has come up. Pinelli even recounts the story of a cadet suffering cerebral palsy who, instead of seeking accomodation, held himself to the same standard as everyone else and eventually succeeded.

One has to wonder if the Obama administration is putting pressure on the Citadel. Will the government attempt to impose its radical PC notions based on the whims of one student, or will this fine conservative bastion of education preserve its core values of equal treatment for all?
