“all are required to include their pronouns next to their name in their blog posts”
This is apparently linked to grading as well. Why do parents pay for their children to attend this type of course?

‘Yoga studies’ prof makes students use gender pronouns on coursework under threat of penalty
A “yoga studies” professor at Loyola Marymount University is requiring students to include their gender pronouns on coursework — or else their grade will take a hit.
Christopher Miller, who teaches courses such as “Hinduism, Jainism, and Yoga” and “Foundations of Yoga Studies” and was part of the “Surfing Yogis” at the 2013 India Surf Festival, sent out an email to his students back in September advising them of the new mandate.
“I added a new syllabus to Brightspace and the one major change we all need to take note of is that all are required to include their pronouns next to their name in their blog posts,” Miller wrote, according to Fox News.com. “I will count this toward your grade when I check for your name each time I grade the blogs.”
Miller (left) included a link to a page by MyPronouns.org titled “What Are Personal Pronouns and Why Do They Matter?” The article claims that “making assumptions” about a person’s gender “sends a potentially harmful message” — that “people have to look a certain way to demonstrate the gender that they are or are not.”
“Worse,” the piece continues, “actively choosing to ignore the pronouns someone has stated that they go by could imply the oppressive notion that intersex, transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people do not or should not exist.”
