Vanderbilt University is on a quest to make students use stupid made-up pronouns like Ze and Zir.
This is about controlling the way people speak, plain and simple.

Overpriced Fancypants University Festoons Campus With Absurd ‘Ze, Zir, Zirs’ PRONOUN POSTERS [PHOTO]
Vanderbilt University has festooned its campus with professionally-designed posters which instruct students to use an exotic set of pronouns to refer to students and professors who refuse to admit they are either males or females.
The fancypants university’s “Faculty Senate Gender Inclusivity Task Force” created the posters (“with input from LGBTQI Life”). The posters are entitled — in huge font — “What Should I Call You?”
The posters provide third-grade level instruction to college students at the obscenely expensive private bastion about how to use the pronoun groups “he” and “she.” (“I support him in the classroom by honoring his pronouns.” “I support her in the classroom by honoring her pronouns.”)
After a remedial lesson on how to use “they” pronouns, there is instruction for two exotic sets of pronouns: “ze, zir, zirs” and “ze, hir, hirs.”
The way to use these comically stupid pronouns — which have exactly zero chance of becoming part of the English language — is: “I support zir in the classroom by honoring zirs pronouns.” There’s also “I support hir in the classroom by honoring hirs pronouns.”
