CA students schooled about 'gross' words like 'he,' 'she'

Thinker statueSan Diego State University is the latest college campus to consider “he” and “she” the enemy of progress and tolerance.

Students at the school were lectured at a “Pronouns 101” workshop that was held in November, The College Fix reported at the time.

The story said the half-hour workshop, presented by the university’s “Pride Center,” was “sparsely attended” on the campus of approximately 35,000 students.

Students were told that referring to someone by the wrong pronoun makes them feel “gross,” “invalid,” “invisible,” “dismissed,” and “alienated.”

Students were also advised to tell others their personal pronoun when introducing themselves, even if it matches their biological sex.  

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute, who is well-versed by now about the “pronoun” push, calls it a ridiculous attempt to police language.

"No society can function by every person asking every person they encounter what their pronouns are,” she says. “How could we even remember? How could teachers, who have perhaps hundreds of students, how could they remember?"

From a spiritual perspective, Higgins says such stupidity puts Christians in a situation that will test their faith.

"It's requiring Christians to participate in a body and soul-destroying fiction,” she says. “So we need to stand firm against these efforts."
