WVU Says No He or She, Use Ve

If he’s to be a she and she’s to be a he and it’s they who told you he’s a she who we know to be a he, then when is it right to call he a he and she a she? This is the insane conundrum that incoming students at the University of West Virginia will be having to navigate this year as the university has guaranteed students have “the right be called by the name and pronouns consistent with your gender identity.” Who would have known that pronouns had become so sexist?

The move is reminiscent of the University of Tennessee’s similar directive last year. WVU is basing its latest leftist thought control efforts on the Obama administration’s redefinition of the Title IX prohibition of discrimination on the basis of sex. To make it “easier” on students seeking to make this transition in their vocabulary, the university has come up with a guide of “Proper pronoun usage” that swaps out the gender bound pronouns for those who are “non-gendered,” such as “ve”, “ver” and “vis.” The guide also includes this advice, “Some people may not want a lot of public attention to their pronouns, while others will appreciate you standing up for them. If someone uses the wrong pronoun for a person who isn’t present, try a brief correction.”

Why is WVU making this downright ridiculous appeal to its students? Well, it may be more than merely the fanciful desires of a bunch of leftist educators. You see, Obama’s directive on the redefinition of sex in regards to Title IX also contained this ominous warning: “The Departments have resolved Title IX investigations with agreements committing that school staff and contractors will use pronouns and names consistent with a transgender student’s gender identity.” Well, if a school wants to keep its funding, it better toe the line.

In other news, Princeton has banned the word “man.” So there’s that…

And being "gender fluid" is becoming the fashion too, so people can change from one gender to another day by day, even in the same day. So the pronoun that offended them in the morning may be the one to use in the afternoon.

My goodness, the lefties are having a merry time with the rest of us.

This turn of the century will be remembered as the self-immolation of human civilisation through self-loathing - that's if the word "human" isn't banned by then..

No wonder that graduates are having a hard time finding a job when they graduate. Their minds have be brainwashed by the leftist academics who have never engaged the real world, never had a real world job. They live in their ivory towers corrupting young minds. No wonder the country is in such disarray these days. People wonder why Trump is popular. They just need to read college policy to realise why.

Why should a tiny minority of people with twisted minds override the rights of normal people ????
