LOL: U of Michigan Enforces Preferred Pronouns. Student Chooses 'His Majesty'...
We've been keeping you up to date on what's going on in the world of higher education. Usually that includes safe spaces and SJW outrage. Also, sometimes dildo protests. True staples of modern American colleges. But this time we bring you a story of push back. Turns out there are still conservative students attending those "colleges," or more accurately, day care centers for adult-babies (see Conservative Student Senator Fights Leftist Campus Thuggery. And it's Perfect.). Which might come as a surprise, considering all the leftist policies.
Speaking of which, one conservative student stuck it to his school when they implemented a new super "tolerant" policy...
A new policy at the University of Michigan allows students to choose their preferred pronouns - including the gender-neutral "they" and "ze" - to appear on class rosters.
One conservative student, Grant Strobl, decided to troll the university administration by officially requesting his pronoun be changed to "His Majesty."
Although Strobl says he "has no problem with students asking to be identified a certain way," he thought it important to show just how ludicrous it is for universities to institutionalize the use of "arbitrary" pronouns and threaten disciplinary action if students and staff repeatedly fail to use them.
"I henceforth shall be referred to as: His Majesty, Grant Strobl. I encourage all U-M students to go into Wolverine Access, and insert the identity of their dreams," he [said].
Someone get this lad a medal. Make sure it's unisex, lest we trigger
LGBTQIAP the entire alphabet.
Of course, funny as it may be to us... There's at least one college liberal, or 20, out there steaming with anger. Ready to blow a gasket. Because this? It went too far according to them.
This brings us to the heart of the issue. Seems like liberals expect everyone else to take their "identity issues" seriously. But when someone else takes it to the extreme? It's too ridiculous for them. Hence why nobody assumed Grant really identifies as "His Majesty." Hence the backlash. See, even the left has a wimpy line. Drawn by a limp-wristed, genderless amoeba, sure. But a line nonetheless. His Majesty crossed it.
Which means there is a line. Interdasting. What if he'd called himself "Ze Majesty" or "Queer Majesty"? Would that have been as triggering? Asking for a friend.
Look, the issue isn't that transgenders want to use a new identity. It's weird, but to each his/her/zer own. The problem is that SJWs want to tell everyone how and where to draw their own lines. It's okay for them to stomp all over your boundaries, but if you cross theirs? Cue nuclear outrage.
Tolerance. It's a one way street.
