It’s Sunday, which means anti-trans pieces in The Mail on Sunday and in The Times. This week’s effort is pretty poor, even by The Times’ increasingly poor standards.
Oh my god! The TRANSGENDER EMAIL!
What horrors lie inside?
Students and academics are being encouraged to sign their emails with their names, titles, telephone numbers and whether they prefer to be known as he or she — or another option.
The addition of “he/him”, “she/her” or “they/them” to the end of emails is intended to “normalise the use of gender pronouns” — and prevent transgender students from being wrongly addressed.
Students at Oxford are also being invited to declare their preferred pronouns before speaking at union meetings.
The horror, the horror.
