Get it right, N&O
I was confused and disturbed by the Aug. 19 editorial, “UNC’s good call,” which ignored the facts of UNC’s canceled gender-neutral housing plan.
The plan would have forced no student to share a suite with members of the opposite sex, instead offering the option to a limited number of those who would have felt safer in such an arrangement. Therefore, praising the decision to nix the option because it “might prove uncomfortable for some students” is nonsense.
Your editorial board is in no position to claim that preventing discrimination “can be done without a change in dormitory policies” if it cannot even familiarize itself with the policies.
