‘Yoga Studies’ Prof Requires Students to Include Gender Pronouns on Coursework

‘Yoga Studies’ Prof Requires Students to Include Gender Pronouns on Coursework

“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?

The College Fix reports:

‘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.”

I guess I would trigger her.

It would be Master Sargent and Sir.

The problem is not that there is a requirement to list pronouns.

The problem is that there is such a thing as a professor of yoga studies.

Curiously, his BS was in accounting!

Yoga sounds like a somewhat lightweight college class to begin with. Yoga Studies sounds like yoga lite. What’s next? I Can’t Believe It’s Yoga? Pasteurized Processed Yoga?
Frōga?

My pronouns are haec, hanc, huius.

This is a discriminatory invasion of privacy.
