GENDER PRONOUN: Students at Leeds University demand staff include their gender pronouns when introducing themselves at meetings

Students and staff at Leeds University have demanded senior staff introduce themselves with gender pronouns in meetings.

They signed a letter insisting the university's vice-chancellor Simone Buitendijk also includes her pronouns in email signatures to show solidarity with the transgender community.

LGBT staff and student groups accused the university of having 'a deeply entrenched culture of transphobia' in the letter sent in August — a month before Ms Buitendijk took up the job.

It called on her to 'rapidly address and effectively rectify the current discriminatory situation'.

And it accused the university of being 'a hostile environment for trans staff and students', according to The Times, a claim the university denies.

The letter accused the university of storing transgender people's 'dead names' — their pre-transition names — in computer systems.

They called for 'a culture which encourages the sharing of pronouns when, for example, in meetings and seminars'.

The university said: 'We strongly deny the assertion that we have created a "hostile environment" for transgender staff and students, but recognise that we need to do more to alleviate concerns that have been put to us and are working with our community to do so.

'We have a clear and unwavering commitment to ensuring equality, diversity and inclusion for all.

'The use of pronouns — in emails or in meetings — is a personal choice. We do not have policies on this, but do provide support and resources to help inform that choice.'

It comes after a philosophy professor quit her job after being accused of transphobia.

Professor Kathleen Stock, 48, an expert in gender and sexual orientation, quit her job at the University of Sussex this week after a 'bullying and harassment' campaign labelled her a 'transphobe'.


Professor Stock received death threats as a result of her 'transphobia' — an accusation she denies.

The philosophy professor was at the centre of a blazing row — and a student-led protest — at the university after saying she believes gender identity does not outweigh biological sex 'when it comes to law and policy'.

She also said that people cannot change their biological sex, sparking anger from protesters.


Professor Stock quit her job on Thursday, saying it had been 'a difficult few years' and that she hoped other universities could learn from what had happened.

No Matter how Mad ,Insane and abominable the Inhabitants of the World decide to go, there are still those of us who are ready to stake our Lives for the Gospel truth given to us by Our Creator, GOD ALMIGHTY.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Fools
The reason I hate these LGBTQ idiots is how they want to force their mental disability down everyone's throats.

Must we join in your foolishness? The other day, one attention-seeking low-self esteem footballer that will never make it to CAF Champions League sef came out as gay as if Beckham, Ronaldo & co ever came out as straight.

Now these mentally disabled fools want to change Biology & English language of centuries just because they've failed as humans.

If you want to be foolish, be foolish in your house. Don't bring it outside to force others.

smh... why do people that feels their rights are infringed, do the same thing to others just to feel included? The Hypocrisy.

If you're "they"... then be they
you don't have to force everybody to use pronoun to feel better for yourself. There's counseling for low self esteem

Long time ago, the world was religiously bankrupt. Then it digressed morally and became a complete morally-failed “state”. Now, with all these, the world is rapidly moving to its end.
