ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio University plans to test allowing men and women to live together in the same dorm rooms.
It's an idea that was pushed on behalf of the school's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Center.
Center Director Mickey Hart tells the student-run newspaper The Post the gender-neutral housing will be of particular benefit to students who identify as transgender. Student Senate member Sean Martin says students in dating relationships who try to live together under the new housing option will be "frowned upon."
Administrators say a one-year experiment with male-female roommates will begin with this year's fall term, primarily for upperclassmen.
They say other Ohio schools, including Miami University, also are trying out gender-neutral housing.
Next up! Unisex bathrooms!
Frown all you want, fruitcake!
Mr. Martin is said to have smirked when he made his proclamation.
Hope I am not too old to enroll
That is unless they castrate the males and circumsize the females, which is a possibility I suppose.
Be careful or I’ll frown in your general direction.
All a hetero couple would need to do is claim that one of them is gay.
No. Wait. Why should a heterosexual need to hide who he is in order to be treated equally and have the same opportunities?
I presume this will be in multi-room suite environments? That is probably the norm in upperclassmen dormitories.
“Smile or frown, it’s still a good position to sit on” -She said.
Why do GLBT advocates want to live with the opposite sex? Seems kind of counter-intuitive to me.
I read a statistic recently that lesbians have more male sex partners in their lifetime than heterosexual women do.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
This just in: Ohio reports huge spike in number of young men identifying themselves as transgender
It is also a good way to create Babies. DOH!
Sounds to me like they are wanting to change the policy so there simply isn’t any particular rule that would stand in the way of someone whose gender is in the gray area from being able to live on campus.
Unisex bathrooms have already been attempted in Maine for K-12 schools. The backlash was pretty quick.
These universities are pretty selective about giving the students all kinds of rights while indoctrinating them and shutting down conservative thought.
It's working too. That's what all the nonsense about "gay marriage" is really about. Make absolutely any combination of writhing bodies seem "normal" with the sole exception of lifelong heterosexual monogamy. And if any kid says it's wrong, tell him that he and his folks and his church members are all "haters."
Sounds to me like the Human Sexuality 101 class got confused with the Modern Media 101 class, which consisted of essays on episodes of “Friends”.
If you’re a transgender woman who thinks you’re a man, but you like men, are you a fag?
Or, if you like women are you straight?
might work well for Anatomy 101 homework.
This is insane, of course, but since when did insanity begin to be a disqualification for college administration.
Roommates - With Benefits!
But Wait! Did Tiffany smuggle a sausage out of the dining hall? Or is she happy to see me?

Watch the pregnancy rate at Ohio skyrocket...
Alcohol + late teen/early 20 somethings with raging sex drives= lots of bumping uglys
Also seems like a few thousand sexual harassment complaints the universities will have to pay out on as well. The upside will be seeing the schools cope with financial harm due to trans-gendered sexual harassment. I mean if Chaz Bono is making unwanted advances at her roommate, Kim Kardashian......
I’m sure they’ll be remembering their tax payer funded abstinence counseling. And after all, everything universities teach makes so much sense, we’ll never have another set of Loughner parents. /s
On what possible moral high-ground could they now possibly stand to "frown upon" any behavior?
Kind bumps up that “If you see something, say something” policy huh?
Instead of searchin for mysteries without any clues, youth will now have to be forced to, witness reality without any mystery.
What if you were a homosexual male trapped in a gay woman’s body?
They are adults, I mean there can basically be any living arrangements off campus so really this whole thing is pointless. Except how could be in that close quarters and not have hookups of some kind going on?
Do you want your kid to live in the same room with someone whose gender is in the gray area?
What parent would allow their daughter to attend a university under these circumstances?
Not when I went there. One to four person rooms. I don’t recall any multi room suites. That may have changed.
How about us male lesbians???
they should be getting mental help not bathrooms.
So now we give equal rights to people based on sexual preference then shall we now look at those who like sex with animal, consenting incest , 9 wives etc?
Why not anyway seeing as we give rights based on sexually getting off
NAIL ON HEAD
Shame we have a biased corrupt media which will never tell the truth.
Ah that is another part of the commie agenda, infiltrate not just churches but also the media and then lie to the public.
Uh...this isn’t the 1950s anymore. Co-ed dorms are the norm in most universities and for all intents and purposes, co-ed rooms are pretty standard in modern universities. People don’t “officially” live together but spending 75% of their free time together and having frequent sleepovers isn’t a far step from it.
Of course not.
I attended OU and can assure you they’ve had coed rooming and bathrooms at least since the early eighties.
It's down in Athens, a very hard-partying fun town in Southern Ohio, in the heart of the marijuana growing district.
A little clarification.
Unisex bathrooms, showers, etc, are ALREADY standard at many colleges and universities. Have been for years.
It must be because transgendered types want to live with members of the opposite sex.
Now I am totally confused!
ROOM? or building?
