Professor Banzhaf’s charges of sex-discrimination against Catholic University’s re-introducing of single-sex dormitories has been dismissed. The District of Columbia Government Office of Human Rights did away with the charges on the grounds that doing otherwise would lead to “absurd results, such as compulsory unisex bathrooms and compulsory unisex lockers.” Marc DeGirolami, writing for Mirror of Justice :

“I applaud the decision. At the same time, I think it is extraordinary that in the current legal landscape, we are reduced to depending on the absurdity of forcing everyone, even if against their will, to accept unisex bathrooms, in order to conclude that a private religious institution like CUA can have men and women sleep in separate dorms. The toilet: our safety-net of common sense.”

Banzhaf intends to follow through with his next complaint against CUA, discrimination against Muslims, a complaint to which, surprisingly, “not a single Muslim student has put his or her name.”
