University of Tennessee tells staff and students to stop using 'he' and 'she'
wtf

The University of Tennessee has told its staff and students to stop calling each other 'he', 'she', 'him' and 'her' - and to start referring to one another with terms like 'xe', 'zir' and 'xyr' instead.
The Knoxville branch of the public university sent a memo round to its members filled with unusual new parts of speech to avoid referring to anybody's gender.
According to a gay rights official at the university, the new language regime will make the university 'welcoming and inclusive' and stop people feeling 'marginalized

And of course the staff will do as directed and take it up the old Blue Ridge Hwy. That's academia in America. Only a full blown oatmeal head would allow their offspring to attend this twisted government indoctrination stations..

This is sick, so what about the 99.9% that DO identify as male or female and want to be called he and she?

A petition to have these dangerously stupid University employees fired is needed as soon as possible.

So fucking stupid. And what if you identify as a he or a she? This is the stuff I refuse to do. I'm not going to remember a bunch of made up shit like this. "Oh, Susie wants to be called yui instead of her." "Johnny wants to be called zied instead of he." Fucking ridiculous.

And how ridiculous are you or attention grabbing if you can honestly say "I'm not a he or a she. I'm a xyr." WHAT THE FUCK?!!

I really want to laugh in the most insane manner right now. It's so batshit crazy! You don't want to leave anybody out but they want to leave out the (imo) majority that are happy with being called him/he and her/she?

Okay, time to give it up. What drugs are these people on? I really don't know if I want to submit and do those same drugs so it at least makes a BIT of sense or if I want to see if I can go live on Mars.

I just...a lot of times I hope I've got a wild fever and all of this is one huge delusion. I'll be fine tomorrow! I think about anybody that's ready to leave this university and has the balls to say "Do you realize how fucking stupid this is?" I mean really wipe the floor with how stupid it is. We live in a world where those people doing that will be labeled the bad guy or gal for speaking up.

This will just widen the gap between "strait" and transgender/gay people.

Well just call them "it"
We do not learn from history because our studies are brief and prejudiced. In a surprising manner, 250 years emerges as the average length of national greatness. This average has not varied for 3,000years. The stages of the rise and fall of great nations seem to be:
The Age of Pioneers , The Age of Conquests ,The Age of Commerce ,The Age of Affluence ,The Age of Intellect ,The Age of Decadence.
Decadence is marked by: Defensiveness, Pessimism, Materialism,Frivolity An influx of foreigners The Welfare State A weakening of religion. Decadence is due to: Too long a period of wealth and power, Selfishness Love of money ,The loss of a sense of duty.
The life histories of great states are amazingly similar, and are due to internal factors. Their falls are diverse, because they are largely the result of external causes. - Sir John Glubb The Fate of Empires
We are at the end of the Age of Decadence heading into COLLAPSE

Females have two of the same kind of sex chromosome (XX). Males have two distinct sex chromosomes (XY). Progressives can only suppress logic and science for so long.

Re: University of Tennessee tells staff and students to stop using 'he' and 'she'
The article [link to www.dailymail.co.uk] advises that staff members use 'they', 'them' and 'their' for individuals rather than 'he' and 'she.'

It seems like this is more effort to get us away from individuality and cluster us into the 'hive mentality.'

Am I on the right track or am I just an old fart who doesn't want to see things change in my life-time?

They, them, and their are all plural pronouns. When referring to an individual, such usage is improper.

One fucking university, or all of them, can't legitimize stupid misuse of the language. It's still illegitimate.
