Hunger Strike Forces University to Build 'Gender Neutral' Bathrooms
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 05/09/2012 3:21:41 PM PDT by oliverdarcy

The University of Minnesota-Duluth administration ceded to student Blair Moses's demand for gender neutral bathrooms on campus after he threatened and began an extended hunger strike.

In late April, Moses sent a letter to the administration with two demands. First, he insisted they "take immediate action to begin the process of designating more gender neutral bathrooms." Second, he demanded an "announcement stating the said day of change."

In the letter, Moses threatened that if his demands were not met by April 26, he would begin a hunger strike for three weeks or more.

Ten bucks says that within 6 months he’ll be up on charges of molesting some gal....or,more likely...some guy in one of these bathrooms.

Label them “Men”, “Women”, and “Too Dumb To Know the Difference”

Love the clip. I feel that way a LOT! What a bunch of wimpy fools. Or maybe he is early in implementing the new obesity prevention program. I bet his folks are proud (no, really) of him.

Late last year Moses was recorded on camera associating himself with Black Panthers and suggesting he would shoot conservative activists who were passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution on campus.

Amazing what you can get away with when you are a liberal.

The modern adult version of an infant tantrum?

Let him starve himself to death, or nearly so and then slap him in an insane asylum.

OK , so now that the students know the school caves in to threats.... what else do they want?

How about a hunger strike if they don’t allow a christian babtismal font? Or a conservative meeting room AND funding for their newspaper

There are some great possibilities here!

Should let him starve. Who cares about attention whore do what I say or I’ll starve myself idiots.

Seriously. I’d put a huge food cart in front of him everyday.

Ah, the ole Tyranny of Ignorance ploy.

Let him starve.

I used one gender neutral bathroom once in Japan - it’s a bit unnerving, to say the least.

At least it was for this westerner who wasn’t accustomed to the mores of the east.

Is this a joke?

A university caving in to some kook's “demands” simply because he goes on a “hunger strike”.

Ridiculous!

I think that third sign should be “Too PERVERTED To Know the Difference”.

And the idiot was only one day into it. I just hope this display of utter spinelessness adversely affects their alumni donations.

This guy is the campus shit-stirrer and he is at least part black. Of COURSE the university is going to cave.

I think I see the fellow's problem with regard to gender-neutral restrooms, though: He's got a woman's first name. There's no way he's involved with the BPP, not without changing *that* name to something that sounds African and/or Muslim.

The reason we have separate bathrooms is for privacy and safety of women.
Why is this campaign not considered a war on women?

The way to deal with such nonsense is through sarcasm. Flood the campus with threats to go on hunger strikes unless:

1) Students and faculty can attend class naked.

2) The school must give free ice cream cones on request.

3) The school mascot is changed to “The Fighting Pink Bunnies”.

4) All female students must wear fake mustaches on Wednesdays.

etc. It would bury this control freak’s message under a pile of silliness. Where it deserves to be.

I suppose if it were set up so that nobody disrobed/unzipped except in closed stalls, or it was a single toilet room with a door that locked, it might not be so horrible. But still. It’s a temptation to weirdos.

In my experience, there was a long line of urinals and several stalls. The urinals were all open to anyone in the bathroom.

While I was taking care of busines at one of the urinals, a young Japanese lady came out of one of the stalls and walked behind me to get out.

We westerners just aren’t accustomed to this and I’m definitely not a fan.
