PRIORITIES: Berkeley to Charge Millions in Student Fees for... Transgender Bathrooms
Remember when Berkeley was at the forefront of higher education? At one time their students were thoroughly prepared to enter the workforce. Now they set stuff on fire when they're mad. Times change. But Berkeley is still making headlines - only this time it's not for academic excellence, or even face smashing those who dare oppose their progressive ways. They've decided to gather millions of dollars via student fees to put towars an important cause: tranny bathrooms...
The University of California, Berkeley announced that it would charge millions in student fees to construct a "gender-inclusive locker room," in a move described as "reducing the barriers to wellness for often marginalized student and campus communities including trans and non-gender binary students."
The 4,500 square-foot locker room, located in Berkeley's Recreational Sports Facility, will include private changing rooms, showers, lockers, and bathroom stalls. Berkeley will fund the project to the tune of about $2.7 million of student fees.
Former student government president Will Morrow pushed for the gender-neutral locker room after students voted "decisively" to establish the Wellness Initiative Fee of $154 per semester.
So much for "Affordable college now!" Seems like students mind having the prices hiked up when it comes to "reducing barriers."
A few million dollars can go a long way. Just ask the guys who used taxpayer money to make a giant, gay national monument. But more importantly, imagine all the academic programs that could use a little help in acquiring pricey resources. This boost in the budget could go toward many useful scholarly things. Microscopes, perhaps. Maybe ones strong enough to examine chromosomes and other DNA stuff. You know, so everyone who isn't a science major can see sciencey things. Ideas.
Alas, the student government instead voted to allocate those millions towards genderless potty places.
Not that we'd expect much different. After all, this is the land of higher education in 2017. Complete with blue dye-stained armpits and a multi-million dollar legion of TrigglyPuffs...
