On Monday, March 24, 2014, The Ohio State University main campus updated its housing policy to include a case-by-case gender-inclusive housing policy.
While members of the Gender-Inclusive Housing Task Force wait patiently to hear more about this advancement, the university community has (quietly) been assured that all undergraduate and graduate students who express interest and need for GIH will be accommodated starting Autumn Semester 2014.
As a result of extensive quantitative research, the Task Force will submit its proposal for a Social Justice Living-Learning Community before the end of Spring Semester 2014. The proposal suggests a starting date as early as Autumn Semester 2015.

You're hot.

I’m flattered.

Toxic masculinity hurts men, but there’s a big difference between women dealing with the constant threat of being raped, beaten, and killed by the men in their lives, and men not being able to cry.
