Default Oxford University demands students refer to each other with gender-neutral pronoun 想

Let's see what's goin' on around Cupcake Nation.

Oh, here's something.

I wanna walk around the campus and call every female I see "bitches and hoes" just to see the complete and utter horror on their faces.

Def adding that to my bucket list.

Oxford University demands students refer to each other with gender-neutral pronoun ‘ze’ – TheBlaze

Oxford University students must refer to each other with the gender-neutral pronoun 奴e instead of 塗e or 都he, according to a new handout from the college痴 student union officers.

The decision is intended to diminish discrimination and prevent transgender students from being offended by the use of incorrect pronouns, according to the Independent. Deliberately choosing to use the undesired pronoun for a transgender person is an offense in the new code.

典his issue isn稚 about being [politically correct], Peter Tatchell, a human rights campaigner and LGBT activist, told the U.K.痴 Times. 的t痴 about respecting people痴 right to define themselves as neither male nor female.

The plan at Oxford is to see the gender-neutral pronoun 奴e not only used socially, but also adopted in college lectures and seminars.

And according to the Times, Cambridge University is moving in the same direction.

摘vents start with a speaker introducing themselves using a gender neutral pronoun. It痴 part of a drive to make the union intersectional, Sophie Buck, welfare officer at Cambridge痴 student union, told the newspaper.

The University of Tennessee faced intense backlash last year for introducing gender-neutral pronouns 奴e and 度e into its college lexicon. The Knoxville campus walked back the proposal after garnering widespread media coverage and being criticized by conservative politicians, who called the pronoun policy 菟olitical correctness run amok.

Many reports suggested the university was banning the use of the traditional pronouns 塗e and 都he, but Tennessee rejected that claim in a statement, saying, 典here is no mandate or official policy to use the language. Neither the university nor the Office for Diversity and Inclusion has the power or authority to mandate use of gender-inclusive pronouns.

If you have or had a penis, you are a "he". If you have or had a vagina, you are a "she". Put a cork in it, snowflake.

Let the peanut gallery and assorted weirdos chime in!

Oxford University痴 student union has said it had not told students to use gender pronouns such as 奴e instead of 塗e or 都he, calling such a move 鍍otally counterproductive.

A number of reports at the weekend said the student union had issued a leaflet telling students to use gender neutral pronouns such as 奴e in order to stop transgender students being offended.

A denial published on the OUSU website said: 鄭s far as we池e aware, the information which has been published is incorrect. We have not produced a leaflet implying that all students must use 想e pronouns to refer to others, or indeed to themselves.

well that is good news.

I wish the story of New York laws that promises fines of up to $250,000 for "maliciously" calling a transperson by a pronoun other than the one they want was false as well.

Come on, though... it's a conservative complaint. They don't bother letting things like facts get in the way.

That's a long wall of text can you cite the specific part that says what you are claiming.

...III. VIOLATIONS OF THE NEW YORK CITY HUMAN RIGHTS LAW’S PROHIBITIONS ON GENDER DISCRIMINATION....

....1. Failing To Use an Individual’s Preferred Name or Pronoun....

...Examples of Violations
Intentional or repeated refusal to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun or title. For example, repeatedly calling a transgender woman “him” or “Mr.” after she has made clear which pronouns and title she uses.
Refusal to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun, or title because they do not conform to gender stereotypes. For example, calling a woman “Mr.” because her appearance is aligned with traditional gender-based stereotypes of masculinity.
Conditioning an individual’s use of their preferred name on obtaining a court-ordered name change or providing identification in that name. For example, a covered entity may not refuse to call a transgender woman her preferred name, Jane, because her identification says that her first name is John. 11
Requiring an individual to provide information about their medical history or proof of having undergone particular medical procedures in order to use their preferred name, pronoun, or title.
Covered entities may avoid violations of the NYCHRL by creating a policy of asking everyone what their preferred gender pronoun is so that no individual is singled out for such questions and by updating their systems to allow all individuals to self-identify their names and genders. They should not limit the options for identification to male and female only.....

....IV. PENALTIES IN ADMINISTRATIVE ACTIONS

The Commission can impose civil penalties up to $125,000 for violations, and up to $250,000 for violations that are the result of willful, wanton, or malicious conduct. The amount of a civil penalty will be guided by the following factors, among others:

The severity of the particular violation;
The existence of previous or subsequent violations;
The employer’s size, considering both the total number of employees and its revenue; and
The employer’s actual or constructive knowledge of the NYCHRL.
These penalties are in addition to the other remedies available to people who successfully resolve or prevail on claims under the NYCHRL, including, but not limited to, back and front pay, along with other compensatory and punitive damages. The Commission may consider the lack of an adequate anti-discrimination policy as a factor in determining liability, assessing damages, and mandating certain affirmative remedies...."
