ze, hir, zir, xe, xem, xyr

If you think my computer went on the fritz with the weird looking letter combinations of the title, think again. Those are the new gender neutral pronouns in practice at the University of Tennessee.

No more he, she, him, her, mister, sir, miss or maam. No xyr! Rickey Hall, the vice chancellor – Oh no, that means there’s a chancellor too – for diversity and inclusion says, “It’s about education.”

I wonder what kind of degree Xem Hall has, and whether ze has ever heard of anything ridiculous enough to laugh at? While we double up, ze doubles down by pointing out, “It’s about inclusive practice… and exposing our students to an increasingly diverse and global world”.

Donna Braquet, director of the university’s Pride Center – I didn’t make this one up either – further explains. “With the new semester beginning and an influx of new students on campus, it is important to participate in making our campus welcoming and inclusive for all. One way to do that is to use a student’s chosen name and their correct pronouns.

We should not assume someone’s gender by their appearance, nor by what is listed on a student roster or in student information systems. Transgender people and people who do not identify within the gender binary may use a different name than their legal name and pronouns of their gender identity.”

Lest anyone think this particular example of gender identity lunacy is an anomaly, be advised that the same state of Tennessee recently decided to replace mother and father on birth certificates with parent 1 and parent 2. I suppose I am being non-inclusive, judgmental, and maybe even non-binary for all I know, but I always thought of Tennessee as being country and conservative. If this kind of politically correct nonsense goes on in their schools and government, what must be happening in California, Oregon, and Washington?

It is frightening to think that Xem Hall and Xyr Braquet are not only products of our educational system, but are now influencing an entire new generation with even more radical, left-wing, brain numbing nonsense. Instead of teaching our kids and feeding off tax dollars, these pampered binary brats should be put out into the real world to make a living. Maybe then they could get a proper perspective on the unimportance of their pronoun careers.
