Gender neutral pronouns were all the rage this year. Literally. Wherever pronouns and transgenders are involved, boatloads of leftist rage is sure to follow (see Professor REFUSES to Use Gender Neutral Pronouns. ‘Tolerant’ Students Bully Him…).
The latest development in the realm of pronouns? Oxford University is the most recent college to embrace grammatical tolerance. And if the students don’t follow suit, they can expect to be promptly punished…
Oxford University is encouraging students to use the gender-neutral pronoun ‘ze’ instead of ‘she’ and ‘he’.
The students’ union wrote in a leaflet that the move was intended to reduce the risk of transgender students being offended.
According to Oxford University’s behaviour code, using the wrong pronoun to define a transgender person is an offence.
Remember how the left kept insisting transgenderism is none of your business? If a man tranny wants to plant his posterior on a little girl’s toilet, it’s none of your business. If a girl wants to rub shoulders with the boys in their locker room because she’s feeling rather mannish one day, it’s none of your business. Except not really, because liberals are now forcing everyone to be involved in transgender identity crises, so…
Look, the problem here isn’t the transgenderism. Although they might want to get that checked out by a doctor. It’s an issue of free speech. Oxford uses sneaky language like “encouraging” students to be inclusive. But if student’s disobey? They’ve committed an “offence.” Which is the stupid, British way of spelling “you’ve made a boo boo and now you’re in big trouble.”
This festering suckness isn’t just a university thing. Different states and businesses have also hopped aboard the tranny train (see New D.C. Law Now Forces Businesses to Use ‘Preferred Pronouns.’ Yes, Really… and In NYC, Using Biological Pronouns for Transgenders is Now Illegal).
Strict leftist code is spreading faster than Tim Kaine’s unruly eyebrow hairs. This smashing of free speech is all done in the name of tolerance, mind you. Thou shalt use ze pronouns correctly, or face the consequences!
Again, this is about free speech. It’s not an issue of transgenderism. But while we’re on the subject…
