Michigan student successfully changes preferred pronoun to ‘His Majesty’ on class roster

08 Oct

Trolololol! 🙂

As Heat Street‘s Politics Editor Jillian Melchior reported this week, a new policy at the University of Michigan allows students to choose their preferred pronouns — including the gender-neutral “they” and “ze” — to appear on class rosters.

With that in mind, one conservative student, Grant Strobl, who is also chairman of the Young Americans for Freedom board of governors, decided to troll the university administration by officially requesting his pronoun to be changed to “His Majesty.”



Although Strobl says he has “no problem with students asking to be identified a certain way,” he thought it important to show just how ludicrous it is for universities to institutionalize the use of “arbitrary” pronouns and threaten disciplinary action if students and staff repeatedly fail to use them.

“I henceforth shall be referred to as: His Majesty, Grant Strobl. I encourage all U-M students to go onto Wolverine Access, and insert the identity of their dreams,” he told the College Fix.


Other students got into the spirit:

Of course, there were some butthurt by all this; e.g.:

Actually, it’s making fun of an asinine policy, but mocking your ilk is also hilarious.

Culture war can be waged back! 🙂

    Yeah, this feller has got the balls and a quick wit. Good for him. Personally, I’d go with “Mein Fuehrer”.

    “Lord” or “My Lord” as the one kid did is better, but the spirit of puckish youth hath gladdened my day. Someday, maybe, in Canada too, downstream of Michigan on the Great Lakes.

    “Your Assholiness.” I would demand to be referred to as “Your Assholiness!”
