First hurdle cleared to allow men, women to live together in UT dorm rooms (Austin, TX)

“It's not as bifurcated as male and female, again it will depend on how you define gender inclusive or gender neutral communities, so again we're too early in the process to say what it's going to look like or how we will define it,” said Hemlata Jhaveri, director of Residence Law at UT.

According to Jhaveri, the discussion to allow men and women to co-habitate in the same campus dorm rooms began early this spring when a campus group called STANDOUT, advocates for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender student rights, approached the Residence Hall Association with the request.

Other Austin news stations were airing this story this evening. It's all about the gay and transgender community. Any wonder the city motto is "keepin' Austin weird."

The gay mafia will not rest until every single social more in the arena of sex is gone. They think accomplishing that will assuage their guilt over their immorality, but it can’t and won’t.

Deeper and deeper we go into the bowls of hell, defying the precepts of G-d.

There was a shocking movie made years ago, “The Harrad Experiment”, about this very topic.

I guess that movie wouldn’t be shocking today.

When I was at Univ. of Tennessee, 1963, girls were not allowed
past the lobby of the dorm, even for visits.
As for gays, they were so in the closet, we never even thought about them.

On a side note - An Ob-Gyn refuses to give her college patients any of the IUDs for birth control because she says the UT campus is the worst cesspool of STDs in the country and that the IUDs harbor the ickies.

I’m all for it! If you all in Austin can be happy and stay there, then I’m all for your motto.

“Ickies”. I never heard that word but it’s certainly appropriate here. Ickies sounds yuckie. lol

And to think that even Plato and Socrates and Aristotle (pagans) knew that the only purpose for education was to instill Virtue.

The Founding Fathers also agreed that Virtue was the most important reason for public education.

Without Virtue—there can be no freedom. Cultural Marxists took over the culture in America in the 50’s to destroy Virtue—morality in children. They own the public schools since Dewey and the media. McCarthy and Whittaker Chambers tried to warn us in the 50’s. No one believed them since MSM marginalized them. The courts outlawed God from the public square. Solzhenitsyn warned us in 1978 of our lying Marxist press, but we didn’t listen, and, again, MSM ignored his message because they were a cover for the Marxists. And Jimmy Carter—the Commie— gave them the power to brainwash and condition every child’s mind in public schools in every state of the nation.

Austin - doing everything they can to truly EARN the title of “San Francisco of the South!”

I have to travel there several times a month and I get in and get out (during daylight hours)! Even during the day, there are nuts all over the dang place!

It is hard to believe that city is part of Texas, much less the freaking CAPITAL!

“again it will depend on how you define gender inclusive or gender neutral communities”

Yeah, it’s all how you “define” Male or Female. *rolls eyes*

My dorm didn’t allow women after a certain hour, but nobody followed it. My roomie always went home on weekends, so my gal and I had the room to ourselves most weekends (didn’t hurt that my roommate outfitted the room really nicely - rugs, stereo, etc.). The RA was cool about it, as long as there were no problems. And, since I wasn’t some weirdo deviant bringing in rough trade from some “alternative lifestyle” hookup website or newsweekly, there never was a problem.

I like to think of Austin as a contained cesspool of liberals. There are few cities in this great state where they can fit in, so I’m willing to give them Austin to ruin as long as they stay put and keep their social experimentation away from normal people. I can promise you Baylor won’t be going coed anytime soon!

WRONG! That is how we got into this mess...giving them one thing at a time...as long as they are not in my state, then my city and then my block and then my backyard and then my home...oh...wait...they already are...for example they recently almost succeeded in not allowing your own kid to work on your own farm...which ones don't make it to the media for response? Another example your car...http://spectator.org/archives/2012/04/25/your-car-wont-be-after-2015/1

"I thought they did that years ago"

Years/decades ago UT had university approved housing, including off campus housing, but when the Civil Rights Act was passed they had to abandon the off campus housing because university approved housing would have had to have been integrated.

So off campus housing became coed previously. I don't recall when, only as you say "years ago".

I don’t think this will happen, i.e., allowing men and women to share the same room.

And as someone who lives in Austin, y’all have a really distorted view of this town. Do you only hang around 6th St. when you come to town?

don’t most colleges have co-ed dorms these days anyway? You pay for your daughter to cohabitate with a guy.

jeesh.

During the filming of that movie Don Johnson was really banging a 14 year old wasn’t he? He was worse than his character.

Liberals refer to college students as “men and women”, interestingly when referring to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan the liberals call them kids....

They kept babying Johnny Jihad (remember him?) and referring to him as just a kid.

UT doesn’t have “same room” coed dorms, yet. There are dorm buildings, like Jester which is the largest, which have male floors and female floors with each floor key coded so people can’t wander willy nilly. The problem with this push for “same room” coed is coming from the gays and the building they’re after is Kinsolving, a female only dorm, which is one of the two next largest dorms. The other large dorm is where the athletes reside and they know better than to touch thatt but going after Kinsolving is showing how hard they’re after this.
