Cornell University Gender Neutral Bathrooms: Men and Women Different?

Gender neutral bathrooms for transgender students... Cornell University says "Yes!" (aka "Whichever!"). Cornell Sun reports:
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. The resolution passed 26-1.

The resolution is intended to be a first step toward addressing transgender issues on campus, said Nate Treffeisen ’12, LGBTQ representative at-large and a cosponsor of the resolution.

“This is a stepping stone for not only the transgender community but the entire LGBT community to getting their voice recognized,” he said.

What do you think? Should Cornell adopt gender neutral bathrooms for the sake of transgender students? Cornell charges $41,325 per year in tuition -- add room and board on to that and students (ie. parents, taxpayers through government loans) pay way too much to learn such craziness.

    His, hers, whichever. ewwwwwww! Have your own bathrooms, we don't care, just don't take ours away. Stop shoving this crap on us! Who wants to go to Columbia or Cornell?
    At this point the Jr college looks like a lot better value anyway.

    Gender neutral is A-okay by me. We have many places around here that have it readily available and I have never run into problems. I go in there to pee. What are you doing in there?

    Do you think society should encourage the blurring of the line between genders? or should we celebrate our differences?

    The bathroom is hardly a place to celebrate our differences, Fef. It is a place to eliminate waste, no more, no less. ;)

    hehe. I don't meant to celebrate in the bathroom, but to identify our difference in things as obvious as bathroom signs and rules about who uses which one.

    I am all for celebrating differences and maybe finding and connecting with our similarities as well, but as I stated in my initial post, I personally have no issue with this bathroom business. It does not affect me in a negative way.

    Thanks, my main squeeze. No worries. I have to go to work soon anyway. Just to finish up a job from yesterday. We had to leave a bit early so I could make that ridiculous meeting about Vera's flying penis picture.

    Oh well, she did her time, made her apologies and appears to be plotting revenge. Her principal has a sense of humor about it and told her how impressed he was with her Visual Arts grade.......wink, wink. He looks like a walrus.

    It defeats the purpose (in my minds eye) of them trying to be like everyone else and pointing out they are different. Im sorry but attracting attention this way only makes more people resentful they their needs are put to the side in favor of someone else's yet again. Some can do that only so often before enough is enough.

    I can't see the downside to it as long as people don't abuse it. If you have a problem with there being transgender bathroom, I see a simple solution. Just don't use it!

    Imagine all the A__holes women won't be able to get away from! Is a supposed 'transgender' really going to help her ? Really?
    How many men will dress tranny just to get into the women's room? You know it will happen. How about sending your little kids to the bathroom?
    Everyone is upset about Penn State and what went down last week over there, yet you are willing to open the door to possibly more? You know it will happen sooner or later! Did you open your minds so much your brains fell out? Apparently!

    First off they aren't converting every bathroom into a gender neutral bathroom from the way I understand by their wording on the proposal. They are only converting the single stall bathrooms that only service one person at a time to gender neutral bathrooms. Their is no point to single stall bathrooms to be designated male or female. Multiple ''stall'' (a urinal and a stall or two stalls is a multi-stall bathroom) bathrooms are a different matter entirely as their is a point because us women are different from you men. So as long as it stays just single stall bathrooms (which all have locks, only a toilet, and a sink) than I really don't care. Now when the multiple stall bathrooms start to all become gender neutral than I'll be mad because what woman wants to pee next to a guy?

    I hear that women's toilet rooms are generally much filthier than men's. Let the women booger up their own toilet rooms and let the men not have to step around their mess. LOL

    There is a very simple solution here that everyone continues to overlook. If you are uncomfortable with a non-gendered bathroom...

    DONT GO IN IT!

    Common sense, people, use it.
