The University of Michigan Asylum of Higher Learning has jumped on the Trendy “Do-It-Yourself-Gender-Identification” Bandwagon and, as a matter of policy, lets students choose their own pronoun to be addressed with (thus objectifying them as a gender, rather than a person), because denial of reality is now seen as the height of enlightenment.
Failure to address a delusional student by their preferred gender or made-up pronoun can be considered a microaggression — one thousand of which can be redeemed for an actual aggression. Disciplinary action can result for failing to indulge the student’s denial of reality.
OK, said University of Michigan student Grant Stobl, if I get to choose my own pronoun, I choose “Your Majesty.”
In an interview with The College Fix, Strobl said that “I have no problem with students asking to be identified a certain way, almost like someone named Richard who would like to be called Dick. It is respectful to make a reasonable effort to refer to students in the way that they prefer.”
However, he added that he does have a problem when the university institutionalizes the use of pronouns that are completely arbitrary and may possibly sanction people for referring to someone different than their preference.
Strobl continued, “So, I henceforth shall be referred to as: His Majesty, Grant Strobl. I encourage all U-M students to go onto Wolverine Access, and insert the identity of their dreams.”
It is no less delusional for a student to insist that he is a hereditary monarch than it is for a person with a penis to insist that he’s a woman.
