Bastion of gender neutrality falls to arbitrary societal strictures
Written by Bwog Staff
Wien’s undergone some changes other than landscaping. The single bathrooms on each floor have historically been used by both genders, but this year, complaints prompted the Housing gods to make them all either for women or men. When picking into housing, those with bad enough numbers to be stuck in Wien did know which floors had which gender bathrooms, but some had numbers so bad that they didn’t have a choice–meaning a walk up a flight of stairs to go to take a pee.
Last night on at least one floor, the issue came up during RA meetings, with proposals to make the bathrooms again open to all. Residents were informed that no floor would be allowed to switch, in order to avert problems of uneven overcrowding. Accusations of unfairness flew, while girls defended their right to toilet seats without pee on them.
The battle continues.
