College Students Hold ‘Sh*t-In’ To Advocate For Gender-Neutral Bathrooms

A group of San Diego State University students hosted a “shit-in” in order to “raise awareness and advocacy for gender neutral/gender non-segregated bathrooms,” according a Facebook page for the event.
The Trans* Action and Advocacy Student Coalition, which organized the Oct. 21 event, challenged participants not use bathrooms marked with “men” or “women” signs for one week. In addition, five toilets were placed outside one of the university’s buildings. Resources and information about gender-neutral bathrooms, as well as a pledge and petition for students to sign, were available.
“The day of the event we passed out 500 flyers by 1:00 pm. 70 people pledged to take the gender-neutral bathroom challenge. Students stopped and inquired, took selfies on the toilets and hashtagged #sdsushitin,” TAASC Force member A.T. Furuya told The Huffington Post.
