Freshmen students told to wear “gender buttons” for their preferred pronouns

StaffRebel Columnist

Are you a man who looks like a man? Do you go by 'he'? Have you never in your life been mistaken for something other than a male? Doesn't matter, you'd be asked to wear a button if you attend Champlain College in Vermont.

Champlain’s Director of Residential Life, Danielle Berube claimed that, “We have a number of students who identify as transgender or on the non-binary spectrum, and about a week before orientation while we were pulling together materials, the idea just kind of came out of the air.”

“It just seemed like a no-brainer — a very easy way to make the first day of college for a number of our students maybe a little bit easier,” she added.

The pins contain pronouns ranging from she/her and he/him to they/them and xe/xem.

“We have seen a lot of students who have really taken hold of pronoun use as being something they recognize as being an important way of showing respect and acceptance and support to their peers and to themselves,” said Maggie Melvin, associate director of the Women and Gender Cente.

Not everyone is on board with the idea though.

“Certainly, there’s resistance or folks who maybe it just doesn’t jive with their beliefs or their own thinking, but we’re in an educational atmosphere, so this is the place where people are supposed to confront their values and beliefs and understand them or push on them. This is the place where we should be doing this,” Berube ironically said.

Universities have been known to push these ideas of gender while silencing opposition to it. If anything, left-wing ideals are not being confronted at all, but rather embraced. Any view point contrary to the leftist norm is censored and berated.

How about a NoBigot or NoSexist pronoun where to consider oneself a certain gender by what one feels or identify like, especially by giving examples is SEXIST GENDER STEREOTYPING.

The only non-bigoted and non-sexist way to gender identify is by what physical sex organs you have

Thought about your posts for a long time guys, and I have to admit even I have those time when my sense of humour is not in tune. But really…. just no, you’re sounding like Muslims, sorry to say.

Paul Maurice and I are definitely on the same page.

Any snowflake who does not like it can piss off.

LOL.. yes, should ask them not to wear anything below the waste so that their gender could be identified… as a bonus, might even be able to tell more or less what religion they are.

If these morons are too stupid to look in their shorts – how the hell are they smart enough to read?!

If the person has a penis and testicles, he is a male.
If the person has a vagina, she is a female.
If the person has a penis and testicles and thinks he is a female, or if a person has a vagina and thinks she is a male………………this person is sick and needs to seek serious moral and psychological counselling.
Or shot dead…..not to put the creep out of its misery, but to stop it from causing misery for its civilized fellow human beings.

I was in Tim Horton’s before school started this morning. In front of me were two young male cupcakes. The funny but crusty old girl asked the second male what he wanted and he said ‘I need a minute to think about it." The old girl replied "You don’t have a minute. Shit or get off the pot!" I started laughing and the young guy was embarrassed and put in his request. When I got to the counter the old girl was smiling but shaking her head. I said to her “Be careful, you might end up in front of a Timmies Tribunal.” Her reply was “I don’t need this shit anymore.”

I identify as Rambo. I demand to not be subjected to any firearm law ever again. I demand an M-60. Subjecting me to these laws is bigoted and offensive.

hahahahaha…seriously entirely too much energy is being devoted to gender. The Chinese are threatening the Pacific,. Russia is in the Ukraine. Islam is in an all out effort to take over the world. Yet these offended cupcakes are off on a gender stroll.
