Just dropped off my son to college and his roommate is gay.
I know that if I knew someone sleeping in the same room was gay, I would be very uncomfortable around them and it would certainly interfere with my studies.
For the purposes of this process we will use the following: Ally: A member of a majority group who works to end oppression in their personal and professional life through support of and as an advocate for an oppressed group.
DNA aside, my son is a nice guy.If a gay person wants to live in a dorm room, then he or she should be allowed.There is no way we would have walked into the dorm and find a beautiful 19 yr old girl sitting on the opposite loft bed (and my son would not have minded at video voice chat rooms all).Yet they choose to error on side of caution.I don't believe this notification should be required by law but I think it would be appropriate to tell a potential roommate of any key issues.I was young at the time and thought that just by saying no that it could end the problem and things could continue.True, some students may feel free live adult sex cam feeds uncomfortable around other people of differing lifestyles but that is also true in all the aspects of an individuals makeup.Report Post, yes because the rooms are too small for that elephant too.I am not certain if students are notified as to the religion, ethnicity or socioeconomic status of potential roommates; but, it does seem unlikely.Today, BlahTherapy connects you with random strangers around the world who are willing to talk to you about your problems, as well as sharing their own.The other option of having each have their own room is a good idea either.If your roommate hits on you and you don't like it tell them how you feel a respectful person would back off.And it should be OK for people to express a preference for sexual orientation of their roommate.I once worked at a local antique store moving some of the larger objects and helping them organize their inventory.I believe all students should have their own lockable rooms and then have open community style kitchens and living rooms.It will be interesting to see how this life lesson plays out.Before the lunch break was even over, the owner mention how I should sit differently because it was a distraction to him for me to sit as a guy normally would.As long as a gay person doesn't do anything that creates any problem for others, he or she should be to live in a single sex dorm.
All dorms have some code of conduct and certain regulations so that all the students can best interact.
Both sides should be able to have say what kind of person they will be sleeping next to for the school year.
