Using ‘Wrong’ Pronoun at University Could Lead to Expulsion

Photo Credit: Barker Evans

(Christian Institute) Students at the University of Oxford could be expelled if they fail to use ‘gender neutral’ pronouns, it has been revealed.

The Sunday Times reported that under the university’s behaviour guidelines, students and staff are now required to use the gender neutral pronouns ‘zie’ or ‘ey’ instead of ‘he’ or ‘she’ when referring to transsexual people.

The guidelines, which have been in place for two years, state that “deliberately using the wrong name or pronoun in relation to a transgender person” may amount to harassment.

    So it’s “I don’t have to accept your version of reality, but you had BETTER conform to mine!” then.
    Just your normal university experience…of 1930’s Germany…

      Godwin’s law/ reducto ad Hitlerum….thread’s over folks.

      • Amos Moses

        Nope …. just your trying to enforce your version of reality on others and being intolerant …………

        • Saunders61

          It’s called a typo Einstein, and apparently you have no perception of snark.

          • Amos Moses

            still trying to enforce your version of reality on others and being intolerant …..

        Mike Godwin? He’s a card, isn’t he? 🙂

    The headline is inaccurate. No one will be punished for misspeaking. However, they WILL be punished for deliberately referring to someone with the wrong gender pronoun as a deliberate form of micro-aggression.

    • Amos Moses

      thus ending free speech ………. good one …………

      Political Correctness is nothing less than mind control …..
      1. Cause people to worry about offending those around them
      2. Once afraid to speak out, then afraid to think it
      3. Once afraid to think it, it is never spoken
      4. Control of the public is achieved

      totalitarian in its inception and execution ……………..

      • Ambulance Chaser

        Are you trying to defend intentional harassment as free speech?

        • Amos Moses

          words are just words …… not sure what you mean by “intentional harassment” ……… but it seems many of your fellows here and you …… do just that ………. and i see no harm ……. unless they are snowflakes ……. ideas are bulletproof …… unless the idea cannot stand up to scrutiny …..

            Ironic you say that since comments on the site that question the dogma are deleted.

      • Palsgraf’s Scale

        What is so wrong about not wanting to upset or offend those around you? Obviously, you *can* offend people, but why would you want to?

        • Amos Moses

          it is not a matter of desire ……. but i am not going to amend my words just because it might “offend” someone ….. you have two choices in a free society …… shut up or say something ….. but being offended and demanding the other person shut up is not an appropriate response …… grow up and be an adult ………

      • jscotttheory

        You’ve listed the four bullet points of religion. Mind control and conformity based on a myth.

        • Amos Moses

          is that a scientific, theological, or personal opinion …………..

          • jscotttheory

            Scientific/ rational

    I’m so glad I attended college when we we had free speech. Today’s colleges are more intolerant than the medieval Inquisition.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    So glad for trees. Dictionaries and encyclopedia in paper forms would never withstand this kind of 21st century’s UK/USA’s insanity each year. Chinese characters have more Biblie stories than English alphabet!!

  • Trilemma

    Why wouldn’t a Christian strive to use the pronouns another person feels comfortable with? There’s nothing to be gained otherwise. It’s just words.

      Why should we lie to a person and encourage them in their delusion? We need to speak the TRUTH in Love.

      The Truth is that they feel confused, different, and uncomfortable, and that they don’t always know the source of their discomfort, so they are trying different genders to try to express their unique individuality and find a comfortable existence. The Truth is that there is no truly peaceful existence outside of having Jesus wipe your sins away. It may not always be comfortable – Jesus didn’t promise his followers an easy life -but they can have the peace of God, which exceeds all of men’s understanding.

      • Trilemma

        Intentionally offending someone will only make them less likely to listen to what you have to say.

        • hytre64✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          The TRUTH is a stumbling block and offensive to those who will not receive it.

          I try not to go out of my way to deliberately offend people just for the sake of offending them – but God said, “Male and Female, He created them”. I won’t participate in a lie. I would often refer directly to people by name (people enjoy hearing their name), but I refuse to go along with the foolish deception that there are 31 genders (as though they were flavors to choose at Baskin Robins).
