    University of Tennessee tells staff and students to stop using 'he' and 'she' - and switch to 'xe', 'zir' and 'xyr' instead

    (The visual really "makes" it ....)

    The University of Tennessee has told its staff and students to stop calling each other 'he', 'she', 'him' and 'her' - and to start referring to one another with terms like 'xe', 'zir' and 'xyr' instead. The Knoxville branch of the public university sent a memo round to its members filled with unusual new parts of speech to avoid referring to anybody's gender. According to a gay rights official at the university,Donna Braquet, pictured, the new language regime will make the university 'welcoming and inclusive' and stop people feeling 'marginalized'.

    I'm just glad I went to college before all this PC crap started.

    I used to be an anti-UT fan back when they were good. I would watch all of their games and root for whoever their opponent was. I've got a custom made shirt that says "Tennessee Sucks".

    Most of the people I went to high school with were UT fans. I was a Florida fan.

    This is a fake story, right? Just plain ridiculous if it is true.

    Will they start making them wear unisex uniforms too? This PC push needs to go. We will no longer have free speech or expression. China, North Korea and Russia have more freedom then us.

    I know I'd probably butcher the pronunciation of these terms so badly and forget which ones to use for specific people that I'd end up offending people anyway.

    I invented that chant, by the way. But a better chant that I invented is "Fuck you, LSU! Hey hey, you're gay!"

    At Ohio St we had toga parties twice a month and the FEMALE gender was darn near the only thing on my mind.

    Let's just elect Trump now and get this PC crazy back in the attic where it belongs.
