UMass Dartmouth Students Can Submit Their Identity Via a New Pronoun Database

“UMass Dartmouth is working to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to indicate their pronouns and have their pronouns respected”

The campus left is taking their obsession with gender to new heights.

University launches pronoun database

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth (UMass Dartmouth) launched a database that allows students to submit their chosen name, pronouns, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

The Inclusive Identity Project “will assist the university in designing, delivering, and promoting customized programs, services, and resources that support ALL students,” according to the school’s website.

The Inclusive Identity Project is sponsored by UMass Dartmouth’s President’s Office, the Office of Student Affairs, and the University Registrar, and aims to continue the school’s mission to “promote and foster a university community that understands, respects, and values diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

“As a society, we commonly assume the gender of others by their appearance and indicate these assumptions by using gendered language, such as she/he, ma’am/sir, Ms./Mr., and ladies/gentlemen,” the website reads. “This practice results in many individuals, especially trans and gender-nonconforming individuals, being misgendered, which can make them feel marginalized and/or invisible.”

“UMass Dartmouth is working to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to indicate their pronouns and have their pronouns respected,” it continued.

Pronoun options available to students in the database include he/him, he/she, she/her, he/they, they/them, he/ze, ze/hir, she/they, she/ze, and they/ze.

John Hoey, the Executive Director of Communications for UMass’ Office of the President, did not provide further comment about the database.

“(UMass Dartmouth) launched a database that allows students to submit their chosen name, pronouns, gender identity, and sexual orientation.”

That’s near my family’s old stomping grounds. Perhaps I’ll have my grand-nephew, Little Bobby Tables, apply to college there. It should be fun.

(Geek humor. if you don’t understand it, don’t worry, you’re normal.)

It is not clear to me if this is a story. Perhaps the headline should read, “UMass adds a field to its student database to indicate pronoun preferences.” I can’t tell if this is in fact a separate database. If it is, who can access it? What good is it to store your pronoun preferences but not access them? What if a future government wants to persecute those with gender dysphoria or at least bar them from having access to classified materials? Will the database be available upon subpoena? What if a UMass student experiments as “gender fluid” or even submits a set of pronouns as a joke. Years later he (or should I say “they”) is a candidate for President or Supreme Court Justice. Can this database of people with creative pronoun preferences be used against him?

The ZooMass bestiary just expanded.

Grammar be damned. I am not using plural pronouns to refer to single persons, nor subject pronouns as object pronouns. Soon we’ll all sound like John Fetterman.

“he/him, he/she, she/her, he/they, they/them, he/ze, ze/hir, she/they, she/ze, and they/ze.”

Can’t wait for the protests that this list isn’t inclusive enough.
