University students and faculty ‘unlearning’ the gender binary

Universities are traditionally thought of as centers of learning, but students and faculty at Temple University are “unlearning” the “binary system” of gender in order create a more inclusive environment for transgender and non-binary people on campus.

The Philadelphia university’s Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL) offers Safe Zone training programs about issues affecting the LGBTQ community......






Fairly simple, really. Lemme' help you out: HE for the XY chromosome creatures, SHE for the XX ones.


From the Article:
‘In an ideal world, I wish that we all used a gender-neutral pronoun’



If you're concerned about pronoun use? Foolish Mortal(s) is a gender-neutral form of address. Use as necessary.

"We" have it so good in the United States that some of "we" have to invent problems to focus on things that were simply not meant to be problems. Until "we" were taught that there are problems that "we" needed to address.


For the children of course. And for equality. And for diversity.


Yeah.... bunch of mamby-pamby pap for sure :banghead:
