Case Western Reserve U. Students Can Now Choose From 20 Gender Identities on Forms

Case Western Reserve U. Students Can Now Choose From 20 Gender Identities on Forms

“Students who are misgendered experience a range of emotion and realities”

Imagine the time and energy that went into compiling these gender identities and determining which ones belonged on the approved list.

Cleveland.com reports:

Case Western Reserve University students can choose gender identity on university forms

Case Western Reserve University’s updated student information system will allow students to indicate gender identity.

University applications and forms can often be difficult for those who identify with a different gender identity than the sex assigned at birth. It can also lead to problems in the classroom when professors work off of university information to refer to their students.

CWRU students can pick from 20 different gender identities, according to Cleveland Scene.

The university worked extensively with its LGBT Center on the update.

“Students who are misgendered experience a range of emotion and realities — a student might feel humiliated, unsafe, under scrutiny by classmates and/or pressured to affirm or deny the misgendering,” directors Liz Roccoforte and Assistant Director AmariYah Israel told Scene.

The choice will appear on class and advisor rosters.

I wonder if they have a gender identity choice for an old white straight conservative male? … https://goo.gl/T3d27J

Is “None of Your F—king Business” an option? Because that’s how I choose to identify my sex, gender, ethnicity, and race to the insufferable bureaucrats that insist on all this claptrap.

So I ate it that at CWRU one can choose to identify as:

1) Normal male, or

2) Normal female, or

3) Mental disorder (with 18 subcategories to choose from).

Somehow though I suspect that “normal” is not a permitted category by the Progressive PC Political Officers.
