(Tea Party 247) – Right now, in the United States, people of faith–or just common sense–are facing daily threats to their ability not to express their personal beliefs, but to express a simple truth.
Calling a man a man or a woman a woman, if said person “identifies” as a member of the opposite sex can cost one their job, their livelihood, and their reputation.
All for being unwilling to compromise on a matter as simple as basic human biology.
Truth this basic under such severe attack–you’d better believe it’s taking place on America’s university campuses, and yes, they’re using tax dollars to do it.
Members of the staff and faculty at the University of Minnesota will soon be undergoing “pronoun training” to make the campus a more friendly place for the “transgender” and “non-binary” members of their community.
According to university first floated in the summer of 2018 and just recently finalized dictates that university employees “are expected to use the names, gender identities and pronouns specified to them by university members.”
A failure to adhere to this policy “could result in discipline,” according to the policy’s FAQ page.
The Minnesota Daily reports that training has already begun for the new policy, and that the training program involves instructing staff and faculty in the new gender pronoun rules.
Staff will then be “tasked with working to educate their colleagues, helping them work through questions and mistakes.”
Wow, sounds delightful.
From the report:
Noelle Noonan, director of student affairs and registrar in the Law School, applied for the spring cohort of the training program.
She emphasized the importance of living out the policy and modeling behavior for others.
“I think this is a good opportunity for individuals who are passionate and are interested and want to dedicate that time and energy to sort of be champions of that policy,” she said.
Facilitator Erin Keyes, who is also the assistant dean of students in the Law School, said in an email to the Minnesota Daily that a training session took place earlier [last] week for Law School employees.
“The Facilitator Training Program for Gender Equity Access allows the Law School to better recognize and honor gender diversity in our community, knowing that it is an essential piece of who we are,” she said in the email.
