Eliminate co-ed dorms? Unthinkable!

But at least university is doing it. And it has good reasons: the destructive effects of binge drinking and unbridled hooking up.

The president of the Catholic University of America does a good job of explaining why higher education should go back to single-sex dorms, which once were the standard at most colleges and universities. John Garvey says that it's good for the young men and women, if you can imagine a college president in this day and age taking responsibility for the welfare of his students.

If you think that this is a ridiculous right-wing rant, as some of you will, maybe you should open your mind and read about how it's important to take care of other people when the damage that's being doing to them (actually to themselves) is so obvious and great.

  • When was the last time you had coitus?

  • Aside from Crown's comments, coed dorms may encourage what Crown wants to get and isn't getting, but, on the other hand, single sex dorms seem to assure a certain lack of social conditioning.
