UC Berkeley Unveils New ‘Gender Neutral’ Locker Room
“It’s incredible to see this vision of inclusivity become realized”
Anyone have any predictions on future issues connected to this?
The San Francisco Gate reports:
Gender-inclusive locker rooms open on UC Berkeley’s campus
UC Berkeley’s Recreational Sports Facility, or RSF, opened a gender-inclusive universal locker room Wednesday morning at 6 a.m., featuring 16 private changing rooms and seven private showers.
The locker room is about 4,500 square feet, making it the largest universal locker room in California. Along with the private changing rooms and showers, there are five private toilets, two of which are accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, and one with an adult changing table.
Students have been pushing for a universal locker room for years, according to former ASUC president Will Morrow. When he was president, Morrow helped form the project proposal for the locker rooms to the campus Wellness Fund committee.
“Seeing this locker room, universally accessible to all, completely ADA-accessible, with the necessary private spaces (for those) who need them. … It’s incredible to see this vision of inclusivity become realized in this locker room today,” Morrow said.

I wonder how they will select who, among their 41,900 students, gets to use the 16 nice new changing rooms with private showers. Some quick arithmetic tells me that there aren’t enough rooms for each student to them even one time in four years. So how will they choose the elites who get to use them?
Every coed dorm at Oberlin in 1975 had coed bathrooms. What is the BFD here.
The use stats are like seats at a Raven’s game. After all of the season tickets had been sold, there were 10000 seats available per game, so residents of Baltimore County had the opportunity to buy an over-priced ticket for a game every 10 years, after having paid $500 in increased taxes to build the stadium.
I suspect that priority will be granted to the most oppressed group in Berkeley, the Trustafarians.
