A small college in Vermont is kicking off the new school year by encouraging students to wear special pins declaring their pronouns, so nobody accidentally uses the wrong one.

The pins on offer at Champlain College in Burlington are quite numerous, and go well beyond the widely-used “he” and “she.”

“Hello, my pronouns are Xe/Xem/Xyrs,” one button declares. Another expresses a preference for “They/Them/Theirs,” even when referring to a singular person. There’s even a pin declaring “Hello, my pronouns are fluid. Please ask me!” available for those whose gender identity and accompanying pronouns allegedly change over time….

Officials at Champlain told the Burlington Free Press that the buttons are a key way to welcome the many students at Champlain who have opted out of conventional gender norms.

“We have a number of students who identify as transgender or on the non-binary spectrum, and about a week before orientation while we were pulling together materials, the idea just kind of came out of the air,” residential life director Danelle Berube said. “It just seemed like a no-brainer — a very easy way to make the first day of college for a number of our students maybe a little bit easier.”….

    I live in Vermont and just about hit the ceiling when I saw page one of the Burlington Free Press. I can hardly wait to offend one of them.

    I’m struck by how literal, “It just seemed like a no-brainer”, is.
