Gender blind rooms
When I was in college there was a little scandel when some friends of mine switched room. The non-platonic male and female were tired of being chased out of their room for the other couple. When the college found out the rules were such that the only thing that happened was a fine for an unauthorized room change (at least as I remember). It seems that we were ahead of our time. And frankly the time has come for us to stop assuming that every man, even every straight man, is after every woman or vice versa. By the time people reach college they should be able to make up their own minds as to who is or isn't a good roommate. So I was pleased with this story from the Portland Press Herald. Welcome to the real world.
