U. Minnesota Will No Longer Use ‘King and Queen’ Terms for Homecoming
The left won’t be happy until human beings are faceless drones with no distinguishing characteristics like gender.

Seeking ‘gender inclusivity,’ U sheds homecoming king and queen titles
The University of Minnesota is shedding its “king” and “queen” titles for homecoming, organizers said Monday. Instead “royalty” will be the term of choice.
The Student Unions and Activities office said in its announcement that the change come this fall is “an effort toward gender inclusivity.”
“We wish to promote a spirit of inclusion at the University of Minnesota,” the announcement continued. “This change allows the University to select the best student representatives for the U based on campus and community involvement — regardless of gender.”
Organizers said they “can be any combination of any gender identity.”
The move away from gender-specific labels has been going on for several years on campuses around the country.
Last fall, the University of Wisconsin-Stout’s annual homecoming for the first time in nearly 80 years did not crown a homecoming king and queen. Instead, several students were selected Friday for the Stout Ambassadors Spirit Award. At the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the titles of king and queen were dropped last year in favor of royalty, ending the requirement that the two be of the opposite sex.
The U’s Twin Cities campus has celebrated homecoming since 1914 and includes activities such as community service opportunities, concerts and the Homecoming parade and football game.

I can’t believe they still celebrate such a blatantly patriarchal, cisnormative, soaked in white privilege ‘Homecoming’ in the first place.
