• John Garvey (WSJ, 6/13/2011) Why We're Going Back to Single-Sex Dorms – Student housing has became a hotbed of reckless drinking and hooking up. Mr. Garvey is president of The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

(1:58) Dorm Story Pt.1 (Fox 5 in D.C. WTTG TV. Will Thomas Reporting from 6/20/2011).  90% of college housing is co-ed.

(1:59) Dorm Story Pt. 2.  John Banzhaf intends to sue Catholic University if they go forward with same-sex dorms. 

(:09) student- Chris Reynolds 1, "it was guy-girl-guy-girl floors, but the girls came to us."

(:10) student- Mark Kavanagh, "we need co-ed dorms to learn socialization."

(:09) student- Chris Reynolds 2, "I don't know how it will impact the freedom of the students."

(:08) student- Stephanie Dabak, "I like the community atmosphere of co-ed dorms."

(:06) student- Elizabeth Brzyski, "We live in the city and it's nice to be able to call up a guy to walk me to my car."

(:22) John Banzhaf 1, Public Interest Lawyer and a law professor at George Washington University, "If they herd their students, they will face legal action, damages, punitive damages, etc."

(:24) Banzhaf 2, It is not a "business necessity," since they've had co-ed dorms since 1982, so there's no exemption under the law.  The road to sex discrimination is paved with good intentions.

413-423 – Calls – Would you have rather lived in a same-sex dorm or a coed dorm when you were in college?  I'll bet most students want to live in coed dorms, but most parents, if they had their way, would rather their kids live in same sex dorms...right?   Former-recent or current college students, tell me the truth, do you think this will cut down on any of the drinking and hooking up?  I don't think so.

• OC Register (6/21/2011) 51-year-old actor marries teen model.

Actor Doug Hutchison has been singing "You're 16, You're Beautiful and You're Mine" for a few weeks now.

The 51-year-old "Green Mile" and "Lost" actor has gotten married to his 16-year-old girlfriend, model and singer Courtney Alexis Stodden, according to an announcement on his website.

Doug Hutchison, 51, married his 16-year-old girlfriend, Courtney Alexis Stodden, last month in Las Vegas, with her parents' blessing.

Stodden, who became a John Casablanca model at 12 and was a Miss Universe contestant at 15, wed Hutchison on May 20 in Las Vegas.

"Every father can only pray to have such a man behind their daughter," Courtney's father Alex Stoddard told He's four years younger than his son-in-law.

Courtney's mother Krista said her daughter was a "good Christian girl" who was a "virgin when she married Doug." Krista bristled at rumors that her daughter's looks had been altered by plastic surgery: "She is a beautiful girl. She has real breasts, real lips, she's not plastic."

"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," Hutchison said. "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."

Just ask Hugh Hefner. No, wait, there must be a better example ...

558-608 – • Licia Corbella (Calgary Herald, 5/26/2011) Gender Storm raises debate about sex.  Corbella remembers the tragic story of Bruce-Brenda-David Reimer, the young boy who was raised as a girl after a botched circumcision and who successfully committed suicide on his third attempt at the age of 38.  This was all under the medical guidance of Dr. John Money who believed that gender was due to nurture not nature.  The book that tells the story is As Nature Made Him:  The Boy Who Was Raised As A Girl by John Colapinto.

• Chuck Colson (6/22/2011) The Problem with Genderless Parenting.

// In fact, the politically correct trend sweeping the U.S., and evidently Canada, is setting child-rearing on its head. Instead of teaching our kids right from wrong and the traditions and wisdom we have inherited from our forbears, parents are more and more letting their children make all their own choices -- choices outside of any moral or practical context.

I'm sorry, but expecting a toddler to figure out what's best for him (or her) is absolute madness. And it's tragic. No wonder kids are confused! There's no one to teach them how to grow up and flourish in the world; how to measure their wants against what is actually good for them; and how to choose to do the right thing over simply indulging their every desire.

But this is where the tyranny of relativism has led us. If there is no such thing as Truth, if right and wrong are up to the individual, then of course personal choice becomes the highest good: Even if the choice threatens our spiritual, physical, and moral well-being.

You've heard me say many times that God has written His law on our hearts. We know instinctively that gender is part of our God-given, biological design. And we should realize that when we try to deny or suppress or alter that essential part of our being, it's not good for us -- and especially not good for our children.

I'm not saying that all members of the same gender should be made to think and act the same way. What I am saying is this: Efforts to transcend or ignore gender are destined to be fruitless at best, harmful at worst.

A culture that tries to do this ends up far more rigid and judgmental than the culture it's trying to reform. And tragically, its children often end up feeling far worse about themselves than children who are taught to embrace God's design and purpose for their lives.
