Stop! Enough!

These PC stories get more ridiculous every day, like this one: "Ohio College Considering Mandatory Transgender Sensitivity Training For Athletics Department."   "The new guidelines would replace pronouns 'he/him/his/she/her/hers' with 'they/them/theirs.'  Besides training, the new policy would also require that the athletic department documents replace 'FTM' (female-to-male and 'MTF' (male-to-female) with 'a transgender student-athlete who was designated a female at birth and is/is not taking medically prescribed hormone replacement therapy related to gender transition' and 'a transgender student-athlete who was designated a male at birth and is/is not taking medically prescribed hormone replacement therapy related to gender transition,' Campus Forum reported. The new guidelines would require athletic department staff to attend training, Clarke explained."  What kind of PC gobbledegook is that? And what if the staff refuses to attend? Of course, you must be some sort of "--ist" if you do refuse, but who cares?

How about considering mandatory education in reading, writing, and arithmetic instead, so your students can get jobs after graduation?
