A PC Pot to Piss In

I had hoped this was a joke, a parody of a college newspaper editorial from the ivory towers. Alas, it seems, it's not:

Pomona College is in dire need of a gender-neutral restroom in the Smith Campus Center. As the situation currently stands, the campus center only has gender-specific facilities, creating an uncomfortable, exclusive and unsafe environment for students at the Claremont Colleges who do not choose to conform to heteronormative identities. As a highly trafficked public space, it is unfair to make those students who identify as transgendered, transsexual, or gender-variant to scour the campus in search of a gender-neutral bathroom, while normatively gendered students can use one of a number of gender-specific bathrooms located throughout the campus center.
