Should teachers be required to use students preferred pronouns? Why or why not?

  • Best Answer

    No.  Should I refer to your car as a boat just because you’d prefer I did?   Of course not.  We should refer to things as they are.   The whole idea of identifying people as something they are not should go away.  

    If a person wants to be referred to as the opposite sex, this person should have a sex change operation and have their sex legally changed.

  • I prefer the pronoun (and I'm joking here):

    "right-handed farm-icle semi alien quasi white black 100% hetero", and sometimes I'm more merman.

    Since everyone can make up their own, we cannot expect teachers to know them all on a daily basis. It's absurd!!!

  • Is today joke day? In what way do "students" set rules? Students don't set rules.

    And schools don't set rules unless that whole shebang decides prison is for them.

    Seriously.

  • Regardless of answer, Democrats may need to consider the question/subject carefully from a political standpoint.  Because not only do the "preference" of pronouns and/or gender go too far left for a number of moderates and even those socially liberal, it's incomprehensible to a majority of the country and as a result could prove invaluable politically for Trump and Republicans in 2020.  Given the unprecedented importance of next year's election, everything should be considered.

  • No, a boy is a boy and a girl is a girl.

  • I still use the words "Indians" and "Blacks." I'm not going to even remember the "students' preferred nouns" let alone use them.

  • Nope.  Teachers in America should use proper American English.

  • Depends on how young the student is. If he/she/it has not reached puberty then no. Teachers shouldn't be expected to reinforce a child's confusion by catering to their requests. If they are a teen and going through transition treatments, then while I wouldn't agree with it, I'd say the teacher would be forced to oblige.
