You know you can just move right? Strikes me as a slightly better idea than killing yourself.


Well...I more just care that people in this world are stupid enough to think male and female are "offensive" words, not so much where it happened or whatever.

Yeah I still firmly believe Colleges are nothing but day care centers for overgrown children who failed to enter adulthood.

So writing down your gender on a form that asks you if your male or female is offensive? All these years I never knew!


You can feel like whatever you want, but at the end of the day their are biological differences that are taken into effect when dealing with health issues which is why it needs to be documented.


Did you seriously not tell that was sarcastic?
It's like you're trying to prove that you're smarter than you think you are.


Far too lazy to actually read the article

Already there. There are certain books you won't find in any library because they have been deemed "offensive".

How does one get offended if you're referred to as 'male' and 'female'? I mean, even if you're trans, you obviously identify with one of them....that....that seriously blows my mind. What are you supposed to refer to people then? Penis? Boobs?


This is why people hate liberals.

Oh, they've tried to ban books...

Not this school, but other schools have tried to ban books because of triggers, racism or whatever nowadays...and not just fiction, we're talking about historical books too.

Someone tried to ban the Greeks for example because of rape references...

My only problem with " male " and " female " is that you get phrases like " a bunch of males and their women friends " or " a woman spoke to the male clerk ".
