Gender-Neutral Bathrooms at Cornell

by Jason Fertig

Add this one to the no big deal vs. slippery slope files.  According to the Cornell Daily Sun:

The Student Assembly passed a resolution Thursday calling for the conversion of every single-stall bathroom on campus to a gender-neutral facility and prescribing the inclusion of gender-neutral bathrooms in all future University buildings.

Policy that  supports converting all single-stall restrooms will not engender the same opposition as one that creates a free-for-all in all bathrooms. But, when the sponsors of the resolution base their support on positions such as “something so seemingly simple as a bathroom could make someone feel uncomfortable,” we have to wonder how far the university will go to make sure that everyone is “comfortable.”
