MILWAUKEE (ChurchMilitant.com) - Marquette University, a Jesuit school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is catering to transgender insanity and switching to "gender-neutral" bathrooms on the ground-level floors of all university-owned dormitories.
The school's student paper, Marquette Wire, confirms that instead of "Men's" and "Women's" restrooms with corresponding signs, the bathrooms will be designated "All Gender" and made open to all students and their guests. Such bathrooms will still require a key from the dorm's front desk to access; however, instead of gender-specific labels, the keys will be be tagged "Bathroom 1," "Bathroom 2," "Bathroom A" and "Bathroom B."
Mary Janz, the executive director of housing and residence life, has indicated that the change is being implemented out of deference to so-called transgender rights.
"We want all students to feel like they belong," she said.
One dorm, apparently ahead of the curve, made the politically correct adjustments before Thanksgiving break — and its ground-floor bathroom is reportedly not just a single-user facility, but for multiple people at a time.
The rest of the dorms will be modified over Christmas break (or as the student newspaper calls it, "winter break").
Marquette is the eighth known Jesuit college to make the switch toward gender-neutral restrooms. The others are Boston College, Fairfield University, Fordham University, Georgetown University, Santa Clara University, the University of San Francisco and the University of Scranton. Other Jesuit universities are apparently considering the move as well.
ChurchMilitant.com spoke yesterday with Dr. John McAdams, Associate Professor of Political Science at Marquette, who weighed in on his school's new restroom policy, as well as its other recent impositions of political correctness.
McAdams was involved in a national dispute at Marquette last year, when he wrote critically of an incident between a leftist student teacher and an undergraduate student who questioned "gay marriage." For his commentary, the school's administration banned McAdams from campus and is, according to him, currently in the process of firing him.
Among Marquette's other politically correct controversies are its well-advertised gay Mass and its "anti-harrassment" training program for faculty that effectively advises that people be reported for openly objecting to same-sex "marriage."
