College: ‘Action Could Be Taken’ Against Students Who Fail To Use Others’ Preferred Pronouns

A Pittsburgh college told its students that “action could be taken” against them if they fail to use others’ preferred pronouns, Campus Reform reported.

The outlet said it obtained a Sept. 13 email from Point Park University’s Office of Equity and Inclusion to the student body outlining the college’s anti-discrimination policy for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The email was meant to inform readers about PPU’s “Preferred Name Policy” as well as rules regarding “misgendering, pronoun misuse, and deadnaming (the use of a person’s legal ‘dead’ name instead of using the person’s chosen or preferred name), as well as resources on microaggressions and additional training,” Campus Reform said.

The college’s Preferred Name Policy allows students and faculty members to use their preferred names when legal names aren’t required, the outlet said, adding that its Misgendering, Pronoun Misuse, and Deadnaming Policy states that “any individual who has been informed of another person’s gender identity, pronouns, or chosen name is expected to respect that individual.”

And if a complaint is filed against alleged violators, “action could be taken,” the email says, according to Campus Reform. (Read more from “College: ‘Action Could Be Taken’ Against Students Who Fail To Use Others’ Preferred Pronouns” HERE)
