Bathroom Politics

Liberals formerly wanted to keep politics out of the bedroom. Now they want to insert them into the bathroom. Elaina Plott at The College Fix:

The University of Arkansas-Fort Smith recently changed its restroom policies after Jennifer Braly, a transgender student, filed a complaint with the Department of Justice.

Braly, 38, sought legal action when the university, after receiving complaints from female students, mandated that Braly use gender-neutral restrooms on campus, rather than women’s restrooms. Braly is currently anatomically male.

Braly, however, wrote in an online appeal for sex reassignment surgery that this solution was insufficient:

“One problem to this is there are not unisex bathrooms in every building. Especially the two main buildings where most of my classes are, so I have to go to a completely different building to use the restroom.”

The unisex bathrooms were created specifically for Braly in early 2011, prior to a successful court appeal to legally change gender status from male to female. Prior to the legal name change, Jennifer Braly’s legal name was Russell Braly.
