“Participants are instructed to complete written reflections about their toilet usage and take pictures as needed.”
How is this real? How did higher education come to this?

University of Illinois Paying Trans Students to Journal About Their “Toileting Experiences”
In hopes of facilitating a “holistic” toileting experience, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is paying students who identify as “transgender” or “non-binary” to journal about their use of restrooms that do not align with their biological sex, according to a tip received through Young America’s Foundation’s Campus Bias Tip Line.
“Toilets and their usage must become a topic of open conversation,” a page on the university’s website states. “During this Fall 2022 semester, we are interested in collecting anonymous ‘journal entries’ from users, particularly members of the trans and gender nonconforming community, addressing the good and bad about toileting within the University Library and across campus,” it continues.
Participants are instructed to complete written reflections about their toilet usage and take pictures as needed. Examples of journal entries are provided.
“My girls and I are inseparable…except when we have to pee! Because they are cis women and I’m a trans woman, I have to use a different bathroom all by myself,” one example states. The fictional male identifying as a woman in the aforementioned example goes on to complain that he can’t socialize in the restroom and borrow makeup from his female friends.
Another example journal entry imagines a scenario in which a student is worried about being harassed while walking down a poorly-lit corridor on the way to a nearby “all-gender” restroom.
