I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb, yet Washburn preaches about ‘diversity’, what do you think about the freedom of self-expression focusing on diversity at Washburn?
Dear Tall Mocha,
Because I am anonymous, I feel safer sharing my open opinion with you, the fact that I used the word ‘safe’ when expressing my open opinion says an amount of what I feel about the ‘freedom of self-expression’ when focusing on diversity at Washburn. I will say that I recognize that Washburn does try to express diversity and freedom of culture, to the best of their ability. Washburn doesn’t naturally express the cultural diversity, as someone who also feels like a sore thumb, I think Washburn tries, but the effort isn’t natural, it almost feels forced and that hurts the sense of comfort that culturally diverse students feel when trying to express themselves.
Are there any bathrooms on campus I can use?
I am transgender.
Personally, I believe you should use whichever bathroom you identify with. However, if you are asking for a gender-neutral restroom, I know that there is a uni-sex restroom on the first floor in Morgan hall, other than that one I really am not sure.
When the booths are set up in the Union, how can you tell what’s up for grabs and what costs money?
When approaching a table full of goodies, straight out ask, “what’s for free here?” It might be nerve wrecking at first, but seriously, the tables are set up for student awareness, they are purposely seeking to get rid of their swag to promote awareness for their organization, just ask.
