Out at the inauguration of the estimable Debbie Freund as president of Claremont Graduate University Thursday, much of the festivities surrounding which took place on the Pomona College campus, I searched out the restroom after lunch. In the hallway, I looked right: Women. I looked left: Men. That was the ticket.
As I approached the door, though, I found this sign. It would seem that on our campuses today, in our desire to accomodate, we have created lavatories for those who do not wish to make the apparently uncomfortable political and social statement implied by choosing Door A or Door B.
It was somehow irritating. Though it shouldn’t be. There’s always another way.
