O'Donnell warned of "orgy rooms" in college dorms

The GOP Senate nominee in Delaware feared the slippery slope of immorality on the nation's college campuses

We already knew that Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell has strong feelings against masturbation and in favor of absolute chastity.

So perhaps it's no surprise that O'Donnell is also on the record warning that coed dorms and rooms on college campuses are a slippery slope that could lead to ... "orgy rooms" and "menage a trois rooms"!

Check out this passage from a 2003 Washington Times article on the scourge of coedization in colleges. At the time O'Donnell worked for the conservative Intercollegiate Studies Institute (which she later sued for discrimination).

Dorm life has evolved into a blending of the sexes, from coed buildings to coed floors, coed bathrooms and now even coed rooms.

"What's next? Orgy rooms? Menage a trois rooms?" asked Christine O'Donnell, spokeswoman for the Intercollegiate Studies Institute in Wilmington, Del., which publishes a college guide.

All this coedness is outside normal life, said Miss O'Donnell. "Most average American adults don't use coed bathrooms - if they had the option of a coed bathroom at a public restaurant, they wouldn't choose it." Coedness "is like a radical agenda forced on college students," she said.
