In the past, one symbol of equality was using the same bathroom as everyone else. But now, it seems, equality means getting your own restroom.
Or that’s how these students attending University of Houston-Downtown feel. They’re part of a movement that wants to see a number of the restrooms on campus converted into gender-neutral restrooms.
They will be introducing a bill to the Student Government Association on January 10th and have set up a Facebook page asking for support.
UH-Downtown supports the effort of making all students feel welcome at the University, and supports the bill.
It’s sad that we still live in a society where a restroom isn’t a place safe from prejudice and bullying. Perhaps this leads to more higher learning and enlightenment.
