    Grinnell Has Uni-Sex Dorm and Locker Rooms

    Whoa....

    Grinnell College dorms: Where gender doesn't matter | The Des Moines Register | DesMoinesRegister.com


    "..Students can share a dormitory room, bathroom, shower room or locker room with any of the above, if they choose.

    This fall, the progressive private liberal arts college on the Iowa prairie added a gender-neutral locker room to its mix of gender-neutral dormitory options.

    Re: Grinnell Has Uni-Sex Dorm and Locker Rooms

    Some students don’t want to be referred to in male or female pronouns because they carry societal labels, preferring the pronoun “ze” (for she) or “hir” (for he), Henry said. “Even in class as the chair of gender studies I get told, ‘I don’t want to be called she,’ ze said.”

    In my experience most people that go to Grinnell College are essentially A-Sexual anyway.

    The college in Boy Meets World had uni-sex bathrooms/showers... Of course that was Disney, where all your dreams come true.

    So, if you sit there watching chicks take showers do you get in trouble?

    I think there is an option for unisex rooms, but no one is forced to use it - I think, otherwise, this is the dumbest move ever.

    I don't see why the liability would be any different than any other public restroom facility. Rape, assault and "peeping" can certain happen (and has) in uni-sex bathrooms.
