Gender-nonspecific housing offers a solution to folks like me. Not just trans kids or gay kids, but to all students who want to spend more energy focusing on their studies than navigating a specifically gendered living situation.
When Eve Marie Carson was murdered five years ago today, first I was scared. Then I was angry. I got mad at the grass on the quad for continuing to grow so damn green even after our friend, the inspirational leader of our school, had been killed.
Why do so few survivors of sexual assault report their experiences? Many survivors are told that whatever happens to them is their fault, a message which is continually reinforced by friends, media, community groups, and university administrators.

After some prying, we got to an answer. I then asked why this was such a tough question, and why, say, if I had asked this same question 100 years before, there would have been an avalanche of answers.
