Baby it's a free-for-all 

Macalester College is weighing the possibility of co-ed dorm rooms, as "an attempt to make transgender students feel more comfortable on campus, officials at the private school in St. Paul said." Mona Charen, writing about such housing at East Coast colleges last year, quoted a gay student from Haverford,
Straight men who live together often have a kind of locker-room mentality, with a lot of discussion about dating girls, having sex with girls, saying which girls are attractive. Introducing a homosexual into that environment is uncomfortable. When I looked for housing, all the people it made sense for me to live with were women.
You mean, he didn't want to experience diversity?

UPDATE: Shot In the Dark has the, um, Presbyterian perspective.
