Skip to comments.University to Offer ‘Gender-Open’ Restrooms
Posted on 07/30/2014 5:33:56 AM PDT by Zakeet
Northwestern University will offer gender-open restrooms to its students this fall.
We are trying to be responsive to the needs of all of our students and to be inclusive, campus spokesman Bob Rowley said in an email to The College Fix. This is becoming a common occurrence on campuses across the U.S.
At Northwestern, the two sex-segregated bathrooms to be changed will simply have their front door placards replaced to reflect the transition no major renovations are planned. The bathrooms are located on the third floor of the universitys main building that serves as the campus hub.
Northwestern joins the estimated 150 campuses across the nation that now offer some sort of gender-open restrooms, also called gender-neutral, unisex, or all-gender bathrooms, according to a tally by the LGTBQ group Stonewall at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
But while advocates convey them as mostly single-stall, lockable restrooms available to people of all genders, its clear many are also sex-segregated bathrooms converted to open-gender ones, as is the case at Northwestern.
The concern among some female students who now must share restrooms with anatomically male students is apparently not significant enough to put the brakes on these transitions.
We received overwhelmingly positive information, and so we went with it, Devin Moss, the director of Northwesterns LGBTQ Resource Center, told the Daily Northwestern. We didnt really get any major concerns.

Since when does being handicapped have anything to do with gender?
This is the most ridiculous sociocultural time in history.
Wait a minute. They have a wheelchair on that sign!!!! Does that mean they think that non-traditional gender-identification is a disability???????? Or are they saying that people with paraplegia are simply self-identifying as such???? Quick, someone call the PC Police!!!!
This will likely be the sexual violence equivalent of “Gun Free Zones” for rapists and psychos. Cool.
I hope they don’t have urinals because they are discriminatory.
What if your "gender expression" is that you are a peeping Tom who gets off on watching naked women pee?
Does Northwestern really think this will appease the half woman-half man crowd? They won’t be satisfied until all restrooms on campus are “Gender Open”. Would love to see a camera set up outside the restroom to see who goes in. I would venture a guess that very few if any “real women” go into this restroom. Wait until an assault happens in there and see the lawsuits that arise. Gonna be fun watching.
Installing rape rooms on campuses! As if the mixed-sex dorms weren’t enough...
and the first time some woman gets raped....?
Lawsuit heaven. Litigation attorneys everywhere applaud this move.
Tirin Kot, a multi-national base in Afghanistan run alternately by the Dutch, then the Aussies and finally by the US had non-sex specific toilet and shower facilities, as I saw, they naturally self-segregated. The women frequented their own self claimed toilet and shower units and the men did as well.
The wretches who impose their non-sexual specific facilities are merely acting on their own lack of identification as men and as women. They are not men nor are they women, they are delusional, not insane, yet, but they are well down the path towards it.
The government is a bunch of a****. They should all be canned....and flushed.
sexual harassment claim generators. ‘he looked at me’!
More than half.
In other words, a second men’s room.
Oh how fun...you can walk in on a hottie (or some great big nasty Rosie O’Donnell look alike) with her wrinkled up face taking a grumpy...Nice...very nice.
So in addition to common sense, modesty is dead as well? Will the stupid never end?!?
I'm thinking women could be peeping Tomasinas.
I bet a lot of men (not) want to display their male units to gawking women.
Cause, you know, women are going to look and start comparing....heh...
------------------------------------> Makes sense!
That’s actually a homo sitting on a cork, so they are represented, too.
My Mama always said, “Life is like a gender-neutral restroom. You never know what you’re going to get.”
This is further proof that LIBs are mentally ill. Hey...how sbout a restroom for the mentally ill?

A restroom is where one goes to urinate or deficate, acts which should be done in peace, quiet and security. These cross dressing, faggot infested dyke dens called gender open restrooms do not meet that billl. They are nothing but hangouts for perverts.
So if a woman is trying to avoid/escape an abusive boyfriend or husband, she no longer has the female bathroom as a refuge. Just saying.
A more crass version is that girlfriends at a bar/restaurant won’t have a place to gather to “dis” their dates.
And what about the safety of children??????? No longer can you send your kid off to a public restroom by themselves, no matter what their age. (And yes, this “gender free” bathroom idiocy is happening in elementary schools throughout America.)
Notice the image of the presumably “transgender” person - half skirt, half pants. You can’t make this stuff up. And isn’t an abhorrent sexist stereotype to assume that all women wear skirts? (I should shut up; some LGBT activist will read this, will agree, and soon the symbols will be changed to nude figures in order to eliminate clothing stereotypes.)
I feel sorry for the janitor that has to clean that one.
Remember when we were a reality based culture and had only 2 genders? Now we are turning our bathrooms into insane asylums.
Might as well just piss in the hallway and not worry about it.
No one in his/her right mind would be demanding that women of any age, allow men (regardless of their level of sexual "transformation") expose their genitalia next to them in order to use their restrooms.
Since I don't think the push is to allow biological women to stand beside them at the urinals, but then, I could be wrong and these women without a penis might be demanding to use a urinal - they are that nuts!!!
To most normal humans, the profound differences between people, provide much of what makes life interesting. The complementary differences between the sexes provide both human continuity, as well as the most important foundations for human happiness in the present.
Feminism, in promoting this sort of insanity, is truly a War On Love & Reason.
There should be bathrooms for heterosexual XY males and bathrooms for heterosexual XX females.
The perverted can do whatever they want as long as I don’t have to know about it.
The recent morphology of “feminism” has become less about equality of the sexes and more about the bashing of men. Modern “feminism” is really culturally-acceptable misandry.
A better idea: since the Left like to throw "science" in our face as an answer to everything, start labeling the bathrooms XX and XY. Regardless of how one identifies one's gender, you literally can never change the orientation of your chromosomes.
Heads would explode the world over.
See Feminist Delusion.
Yep, can’t talk about 2 genders anymore.
That’s binary thinking, and you are just not with it to think there are only 2.
Facebook has 56 different gender combinations you can choose from.
I need to go to re-education camp on this issue................
They need to add a horse, a squid and Godzilla to that sign.
Words have "genders." People are divided, functionally, into sexes--as are all advanced forms of life (mammals, birds, etc.).
Of course the compulsive egalitarians would like to trivialize the importance of sex & sex-roles, by treating it as no more important than the gender forms of words.
(I am not accusing you of that. I realize that you are making fun of the stupidity involved, also. Cheers!)
“...Start labeling the bathrooms XX and XY. Regardless of how one identifies one’s gender...”
You want an XY who thinks they are XX and likes XYs to share toilets with your grandson?
Normal heterosexuals have rights too. Let the diseased share a rainbow toilet.
Idiots. The flaming liberals are complete idiots and will stop at nothing to promote their agenda and destroy our country in the process.
Several years ago, a male employee “transgendered” to female. There was an uproar among the women employees regarding which bathroom this person was going to use. Fortunately, the tranny agreed to use a lockable unisex bathroom that was created from one of the men's restrooms. I think h/she is the only person who uses that facility.
I trust these restrooms are also open for dogs and cats. Litter boxes and pee rugs are an important part of genuine accessibility.
“Since I don’t think the push is to allow biological women to stand beside them at the urinals, but then, I could be wrong and these women without a penis might be demanding to use a urinal - they are that nuts!!!”
Have you ever been to see a showing of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show?” In my younger years I decided to see what the hoopla was all about....I still have the memory of the womyn using the urinals seared into my brain....what has been seen cannot be unseen.
Guess I’ll have to check it out. (RH, that is)
