“Gender-blind” dorms growing in popularity

The Kansas City Star reported that a problem facing public and secular colleges and universities is when a person is “Born a male — dresses and lives as a female. Or the other way around.”

The story goes on to report that more schools are completely dispensing with all gender restrictions for living in dorms, making for what they call “gender-neutral” housing. Schools as diverse as Oberlin College in Ohio and Northwest Missouri State University are beginning to offer it, whereas such large schools as Columbia and Lawrence universities don’t. The Star estimates there are 50 schools around the country with “gender-blind” housing now.

They also report on a female student who has sued Miami University of Ohio because she is trying to live as a man and the school did not accommodate her.

This contrasts sharply with the colleges highlighted in the Newman Guide, all of which segregate their dorms and set strict standards for interaction between the sexes.
