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.

A sign of the times in the Windy City ...
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...
