Georgetown Dorm for Students Exploring Gender and Sexuality

“Students will now begin to have a unique residential space dedicated to exploring and understanding themselves and others in relation to gender and sexuality.”

Why can't students just move into a dorm and get to know people? It used to be a pretty solid way for people to meet and mingle with those that they might never get to know otherwise, to befriend people they may otherwise have misunderstood. Now, we have to have people forced into false situations to meet and understand each other better and silo themselves in just about every other way, including dormitories. 

The dormitory madness has spread to Georgetown University. A new "living and learning community" (LLC) called "The Crossroads: Gender and Sexuality" is exclusively for students who want to explore their gender and sexuality. Vice President of Student Affairs Todd Olson told Campus Reform:

(The new LLC) will provide a community space for discussion on gender and inclusion while upholding the Jesuit values of community in diversity and educating the whole person.

He said that they had an important task ahead, however:

Our Catholic and Jesuit values call on us to engage with ‘respect, compassion, and sensitivity’ with our LGBTQ community,” Olson continued. “It is in keeping with our Catholic and Jesuit values to provide a language, perspective, and sense of inclusion for deepening our sense of cura personalis.

How is it helpful to anyone for people to be segregated?
