“Referring to someone with the wrong gender pronoun is one way to misgender someone and can trigger dysphoria”
Just in case you were wondering, this stuff is happening in red states too.
Campus Reform reports:
University of North Dakota provides students with pronoun guide, ‘gender closet’
The pronoun guide warns, “Referring to someone with the wrong gender pronoun is one way to misgender someone and can trigger dysphoria,” adding that “[u]sing a person’s correct gender pronouns shows support and respect.”
The guide also lists “xe” and “xyrself,” “per” and “perself,” and “ey” and “emself” as alternative pronouns.
UND’s gender closet provides “access to free identify [sic] affirming clothing for UND students.”
“The closet helps support trans, non-binary, and gender-diverse students feel comfortable and validated so they can be their authentic selves while pushing forward in their education,” reads the closet webpage.
The Gender Pronoun Guide and Gender Expression Closet are both made available through UND’s Pride Center. The Pride Center “keeps a stock of menstrual products, condoms, satin dams, lubricants, and safe sex kits.”
UND is not the only university that hosts an LGBT gender closet.
Campus Reform reported last December, for example, that the University of Pennsylvania is home to “The Clothing Closet,” which “aims to provide affordable clothing to gender-transitioning students.”
