Samantha Irby wants to go back to school for gender neutral housing

Writer Samantha Irby takes a unique look at the move to implement gender neutral housing at Yale (with her trademarked salty language), which (to her at least) is less about gender and more about sex. Read an excerpt, or listen below: 

"Published this week in the Yale Daily News, that upstanding stalwart of journalistic integrity and hard-hitting investigative reporting, were the findings of a study conducted by the Yale College Council to determine whether or not offering on-campus gender neutral housing was a plausible alternative to the choice of sh***y, threadbare carpeted student apartments most potential date rapists and Rugby match riders opt for during their junior and senior years of school. Leave it to those eggheads at Yale to come up with a fancy way of saying 'Across the hall booty call.'"

On Saturday, if you went to the Machete, you saw Steve Waltien of the Second City main stage, Kate James of Schadenfraude, puppeteer Noah Ginex at the Horseshoe on Saturday. The performance also featured a tribute to the late Chicago comic Mike Enriquez by Ryan Patrick Dolan.
