A university plans to make its guidelines on the use of preferred pronouns mandatory for faculty.
The gender guidelines have been around for a few years at American University, located in the nation’s capital, but Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute says Center for Diversity and Inclusion is stepping up its efforts to eradicate gender by making preferred pronouns mandatory for faculty.
"So now they're not just adding new, invented words,” she says, “like 'ze' [and] 'zer.’ They're actually trying to empty out the existing words that are 'gendered' as they say of all meaning relative to maleness or femaleness."
American, a private college in D.C., has about 13,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
Leftist zealots at AU and at other campuses nationwide, Higgins warns, are tireless in their attempt to "erase public recognition of sexual differentiation."
"It's classic Orwellian newspeak,” she tells OneNewsNow, “which is to either eliminate words a certain politically powerful group doesn't like or to change the definitions of existing words.”
Once the guidelines become mandatory for faculty, Higgins predicts they will become compulsory for students as well.
