It looks like some students at UNC are following in the footsteps of fellow activists at the University of Houston-Downtown.

At UNC, The Personal is Political–Including Bathrooms

A couple of developments at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this year illustrate why we have to be not just vigilant, but must go on the offensive, to stop the Ivory Tower from becoming one big political indoctrination camp.

In the spring, the school’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved a policy for “gender-neutral” housing that would permit students of different sexes who are not related to share dormitory rooms. The policy was vigorously promoted by the UNC gay and lesbian community and their allies, and was strongly backed by the administration, especially former chancellor Holden Thorp. A section of rooms that could house 32 students was set aside for this purpose.

But calmer heads prevailed. Before the fall semester began, the system-wide Board of Governors unanimously voted down the new policy. Campus gender activists have tried to stir up protests ever since, but rarely get more than a handful of students to show (usually the same few activists). And only four or five students signed up for the new housing.

But campus ideologues never rest, and they have found a way to make an end run around the Governors. This letter recently appeared in the UNC student newspaper, the Daily Tar Heel. It praises the decision by the “Campus Y” to declare its four bathrooms to be gender-neutral. The Y is a campus organization with its own building that began in the 1800s as a Christian Men’s association but now has a mission of “the pursuit of social justice through promoting pluralism” (pluralism is the current code word for multiculturalism).

Due to the action of the Y—which, because of its mission, is controlled by ideologues—the gender activists managed to stealthily push their agenda forward, despite the setback in the more-publicized housing controversy. Apparently, the Y was able to adopt their new policy without any board approval
