transgender bathroom 'we don't care'Saying it hopes to inspire others to do likewise, an Illinois university is offering a gender-neutral, multi-stall bathroom, becoming the first major university in Chicago to do so.

Northwestern University's Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing says it's "thrilled" to announce the opening of the facility in their offices on the downtown campus, proclaiming itself "a trailblazer in supporting civil and health equity."

Pro-family activist Linda Harvey of Mission: America says the Institute's lofty title does little to mask the misguided effort behind this.

"This is simply social reengineering and undermining morality," she tells OneNewsNow. "... They can put all kinds of fancy titles like 'institute' or anything else that makes it sound objective and scientific, they can do that all they want to .... [Y]ou can put lipstick on a pig and it still doesn't make it anything other than a pig."

Accompanying the "All Gender Restroom" signage on the restroom door is a sign reading: "Sometimes because of how people look, they aren't allowed to use the restroom. We can do better!"

Harvey, Linda (Mission: America)Harvey argues that the political posturing by the Institute is really detrimental to students who are there to get an education.

"It's an unfortunate redirection of kid's educational opportunities, their time, and their dollars into nonsense like this that's only going to end up harming people," she states.

Northwestern joins 150 educational institutions across the U.S. that have installed gender-neutral bathrooms.
