“Transgendered students have nowhere to go to the bathroom on campus”

From the Boston Globe (via the Corner):

Transgendered students at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, unable to persuade administrators in the past year to create coed bathrooms, are shifting their strategy from private talks with school officials to a petition drive and mass mobilization.

The Restroom Revolution group, as students are calling themselves, will meet Wednesday to gauge student response to its campaign to create coed bathrooms, which they say are needed to help transgendered students – who exhibit the appearance and behavioral characteristics of the opposite sex – feel safe from ridicule and physical harm.
