University of Kansas students are being offered buttons spelling out their preferred gender pronouns

What about a button with the old instruction:  "Call me anything but don't call me late for dinner"

University of Kansas students are being offered buttons through the school's library system meant to make their preferred gender pronouns clear.

Various University of Kansas Libraries employees now sport the square-shaped pins, with extra ones also doled out to interested students, the Lawrence Journal-World reports.

Library leaders say the buttons are part of the library system's 'You Belong Here' marketing effort meant to lure undergraduates and ensure that they feel welcome, including transgender students.

The buttons come in three versions: 'He him his,' ''She her hers' and, for people who don't identify themselves as male or female, 'They them theirs.'

'Because gender is, itself, fluid and up to the individual,' a sign at the libraries reads. 'Each person has the right to identify their own pronouns, and we encourage you to ask before assuming someone's gender.

More Politically Correct nonsense run amok; are there not any adults in charge ?

Why should the small minority with twisted minds be entitled to inflict themselves on normal people ?

It reminds me of the way the Nazis required the Jews to wear little badges.

I don't are what anyone's preference is, and if they pass a law making it a crime not to use their prefer gender term when talking to them, rest assured I will still call people with an 'XX' 23rd chromosome she/her/woman and people with an 'XY' 23rd chromosome pair he/him/man. If they can't "tolerate" that that's not my problem. That's how they were made and the science is on my side.

My sheetrock and I have great conversations. It has an image of our Lord, Jesus, after there was a leak in my roof. It's a miracle. For $100, I will send you a picture. Operators are standing by.
