Students at Hofstra University Demand ‘All Gender’ Locker Room

Students at Hofstra University Demand ‘All Gender’ Locker Room

What could go wrong?

Having failed to get the statue of Thomas Jefferson removed from campus, student activists have moved on to other projects.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Hofstra students demand ‘all-gender locker room’

In the wake of a widespread push to remove a statue of Thomas Jefferson from campus, several Hofstra University student organizations have banded together in order to demand an “all-gender locker room” for the school’s fitness center.

The tweet is coupled with an infographic which reads: “MAKE THE FITNESS CENTER GENDER-INCLUSIVE,” with a picture depicting an individual pushing two restroom doors labeled “male” and “female.” Under the female label is the caption “Get Yelled At,” while the caption “Get Beat Up” resides under the male label.

“Gendered spaces like locker rooms or showers can be scary or even dangerous for trans or gender-nonconforming individuals who don’t meet society’s expectations of gender. Support the campaign to have an all-gender locker room constructed in Hofstra’s David S. Mack Fitness Center by filling out a quick form!” the infographic concludes, declaring “Fitness has ‘NO GENDER!’”

Memo for Hofstra students:

So, have you already set up a slush fund to cover the legal payouts after you lose the sexual harassment and assault lawsuits that will inevitably result from your wonderful all-gender locker room if it’s constructed? Asking for a friend.

Just out of curiosity….the article refers to a “constructed” all-gender locker room. Are we to infer that this means three different showers? If so, are the men going to be charged with hate crimes for using a male only shower?

How will the women be treated if they opt for the women’s shower?

Why should there be separate showers at all? If the kooky left wants “equality,” only one politically correct shower is needed.

BTW, sign me up for the last option. Can I bring my camera with me?

What are transgender people 25% of the population? 30%? I don’t know any other than what I see on tv. Do we construct special facilities for every group that is less than 1% of the population?

I don’t see this as a big deal. In 1970, when Harvard/Radcliffe went co-ed, there was only one locker room at the Radcliffe pool. The boys mostly used one end of the room and the girls mostly used the other end, and everybody got along. Everyone at Radcliffe was already used to co-ed bathrooms, and Adams house held a weekly “nude night” in their pool. So co-ed locker rooms were not a big deal.

(We may have provided the original idea for the B-movie, “The Harrad Experiment”, that came out in 1973. But the reality was totally different from the movie, and much less titillating.)

    For someone whose handle suggests they are an old academic, this post is incredibly naive. We don’t live in the care free world of the ’70s any more. We live in the litigious and hyperactivist backdrop of the world of the millenials. Your rationale does not hold up under scrutiny in that context.

These people are bonkers.

Yet these are the same people who want to charge a man with sexual harassment for telling a dirty joke or looking to long at a woman, or sexual assault (a felony) for touching a girl on the arm. Yeah, mixed locker rooms are a great idea.

    That is exactly the intent. To provide fodder for lawfare against people for what would usually be considered innocent behavior.

    The end result they are looking for is a cowed populace afraid of its own shadow.
