Boys and Girls

Well…I took a page from my friend’s book. I decided to shamelessly copy Jennifer Juniper’s “Feedback Friday” idea because the below-topic was too good to pass up! So, welcome to this one-time special (and borrowed) edition of “Feedback Friday” courtesy of The Constant Complainer.
According to this Associated Press article, Ohio University “plans to test allowing men and women to live together in the same dorm rooms.” Apparently, they university made this decision after pressure from the school’s “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Center.”
I’ll let you read the story link for more details. But first…my absolute favorite quote from the story was from Student Senate member Sean Martin. Martin said “students in dating relationships who try to live together under the new housing option will be “frowned upon.”” LOL. Frowned upon! Wow, what a horrific punishment.
The school believes that they are doing a good thing to help “benefit students who identify as transgender.” But I think it’s going to be a nightmare if they haven’t specified more detailed rules regarding who can do this and who can’t. Simply “frowning upon” two college lovers isn’t going to stop them from trying to room together. Yes, I understand there’s a certain parental factor that SHOULD kick in. But stranger things have happened.
So…are you opposed to gender-neutral housing? And would you have done it with your friends of the opposite sex while in college? Oh, and would you have tried to do with with your college sweetheart?
