Coed Dorm Floors, Now Coed Dorm Rooms?

By | October 5, 2021 | 0 Comments

Although most shared dorm rooms are still single sex, more than 150 colleges, including Brown University, Stanford University, The University of Pennsylvania, Oberlin College, and the California Institute of Technology now allow some or all students to share a room with anyone they choose. – Report, 2016

As far as sharing shower spaces with persons of the opposite sex, an MIT student comments, “Nobody cares.”

Nobody cares? Does this mean the students are sexually promiscuous, or more-or-less asexual? Either possibility is troublesome. And now we add Covid restrictions. Where does that leave young people? Totally confused or just apathetic?

Years ago, when parents sent a 17- or 18-year-old off to a university, they expected that the university administration would take some responsibility for their daughter or son. They expected that the university would act, at least to a degree, in loco parentis − in place of a parent. Things have changed.

First we went to coed dormitories, with males and females on separate floors. Then we went to coed floors. And now, many universities are allowing coed dorm rooms. A man and a woman will be assigned to the same bedroom if they request it. There will be no compulsory assignments − at least not yet.

Universities as sources of wisdom? What an archaic idea. We don’t need no stinkin’ wisdom! We’ve got huge endowments and federal grants, but we’ll still force you to burden yourselves with hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans, while we teach you “progressive” dogma − and leave you as a cynical leftist to graduate with a diploma you can’t use, and genital herpes you can’t get rid of. Where else can you get a deal like that?

In two generations, we have gone from universities acting in loco parentis for their students, to universities as leftist indoctrination centers, and now to universities in effect pimping out their students. Some would call this “progressive.” I could find other words, but I don’t want to make Marine gunnery sergeants blush.
