UNC-CH trustees endorse
´gender neutral´ housing option

News & Observer [Raleigh,NC], by Jane Stancill

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 11/15/2012 1:15:24 PM

CHAPEL HILL -- Starting next fall, students at UNC-Chapel Hill will be able to live in dorm rooms and apartments with roommates of the opposite gender. The UNC-CH Board of Trustees unanimously endorsed “gender-neutral” housing after a yearlong push by students who said the move was necessary to give gay, lesbian and transgender students a place free of harassment. Chancellor Holden Thorp said the housing option would be implemented next fall. Students will be able to apply for the option of choosing roommates of either gender in campus dorms and apartments.

Comments:
They are worried about discrimination at Chapel Hill. If a transgendered kid isn´t free from harassment at Commie occupied Chapel Hill.....

Both my husband and I are graduates of UNC-Chapel Hill. It´s the #1 college choice for our 15 year old daughter who was born and raised in Chapel Hill. I´ve always wanted my children to attend my alma mater, we got solid educations back in the 80s - before the inmates took over the asylum.

We just moved away, lived there for 30 years. Disgusted with the crazy liberals, the indoctrination of our children in the overstated school system, and the skyrocketing property taxes on our home, which were up to $800/month!!! This is NC- not the French Riviera!

This is the last straw. My terrific, sensible daughter will not be exposed to these idiots.

# 2 --- wasn´t it that great school which decided recently not to use the word "freshman" anymore because they had the weird idea that a college freshman refers only to males.

Political correctness has destroyed that university.

#3 - yes, you´re correct. They now call them "first-year students, second-year students" and so on. It would be terrible to offend their precious psyches.
Yes indeed, PC gone absolutely wild.
Give me a break!!

#4 and #5 - nutty doesn´t begin to describe it. Total loss of any connection to reality which results in a generation (or more) of complete flakes with no ability to delineate right from wrong, sensible from ridiculous. It makes me sad and furious at the same time. This is another result of tenure tracks.

I could tell you stories about some of the grade school kids my own children had classes with that would curl your hair. One of my daughter´s middle school classmates boasted to the entire class that he was a "Democratic Socialist!" Can you imagine?! Whatever the heck that is . . . . You know he got that from his parents. Mind boggling.

I think "Democratic Socialist" is the description that is used in Chicago for communist-mentored political office holders. The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) always held that the old Soviet Union was a true democracy. They also couched their ideas in American terms like "liberty" and "freedom" to make them acceptable to dupes.

The Obama administration is dropping some new hints about how it has moved money around to fund Obamacare without Congress — but not nearly enough to put the controversy to rest.Forced to reveal more details under a provision tucked in this year’s bipartisan budget deal, the Department of Health and Human Services declared Friday how it used Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s authority to move about $1.6 billion in departmental funds around last year — the Cabinet secretary’s version of looking for change under the couch cushions and hitting the jackpot. But HHS didn’t say exactly how it spent the money, and

Bob Costas got his infamous case of Olympic pink eye from botched Botox, a source claims to Page Six.NBC’s prime-time Olympics host, who had to take a six-day absence after coming down with viral conjunctivitis in both eyes, contracted the infection after a Botox procedure to smooth out wrinkles prior to the Olympics. Our source said, “Bob’s eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isn’t the first time he’s had it.” NBC strongly denies that Costas — who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track — developed the infection from

A local CBS affiliate in Raleigh opened its phone lines for seven hours Tuesday to promote Obamacare. With the deadline for enrollment fast approaching, Raleigh’s WRAL brought in 27 Obamacare “experts” — including navigators, certified application counselors, and marketplace-savvy insurance agents – to answer callers’ questions from noon until seven in the evening. WRAL’s news broadcast also cut into its normal coverage to advertise the experts and the number to reach them. “For 1.3 million North Carolinians who are currently uninsured now is the time to think about getting coverage,” Renee Chou, a WRAL reporter explained, while standing in front

Saturday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement in honor of Women’s History Month in which they highlighted women trailblazers, mentioning some prominent women in the Republican Party. Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919. Boasting a unique role Republican women have played, they stated: Republican women have a history of being trailblazers, breaking ground and glass ceilings--from Margaret Chase Smith,

Microsoft’s new CEO is still formulating his strategy for the software giant, but he’s already endorsing an executive known for bringing hardball D.C. political tactics to the tech world. As part of a series of executive changes Monday, Satya Nadella announced that Mark Penn, the controversial Hillary Clinton pollster who joined the company two years ago, will take the role of chief strategy officer. Penn, known as a champion of negative ads, was a divisive figure during Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and, as a Microsoft executive, he was the mastermind behind the company’s “Scroogled” ad campaign against Google.Nadella, who took the

CNN’s Chief International Correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, informed network anchor Wolf Blitzer on Thursday that there was no indication that Russian forces were planning to intervene militarily in Ukraine. Less than 24-hours later, Russian forces militarily intervened in Ukraine. “Some are concerned we might be on the eve of another Cold War,” Blitzer fretted. “What, if anything, would stop Vladimir Putin from getting involved?” “There doesn’t seem to be any notion that he is actually going to do so,” Amanpour insisted.“The U.S. right now says it only sees Russia’s military exercises ‘within the normal range,’” she continued. “It does not see

First lady Michelle Obama will unveil a proposal Tuesday that would ban marketing junk food and sodas in schools — an unusually aggressive position for the administration that could draw the ire of school districts, food companies and conservatives. Schools would no longer be able to house vending machines that sport images of their flagship sodas, have posters promoting unhealthy food and drinks or use cups in cafeterias that market high-calorie beverages, among other forms of promotion, according to administration officials.The proposal — part of an updated school wellness policy crafted by the Department of Agriculture — would require marketing of

Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

WASHINGTON — President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated. On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement.
