This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:

CORRECTION: July 3

An earlier version of this article used the pronoun "she" to refer to Vanidy "Van" Bailey, the newly appointed director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. In fact, Bailey prefers not to be referred to by any gendered pronoun.

*facepalm*

So, being the BGLTQ Director at Harvard affords you the ability to tell other people how to speak/write?

Powerful position it has there.

Well, by the logical extension of she, he, it, the most non-sexist pronoun would be to call the new director "shit".

Oh, by the way, "qrap" isn't a typo. I did that deliberately. :smile-new:

Or "sheit" to get around any censors. :biggrin-new:

I noticed and left it, you were being perfectly Frank.

It also allows you to sue people for insulting you while you may insult others (hetero men and women (especially)) with no punishment whatsoever.

Daffy Duck would have diagnosed this as pronoun trouble.

Referring to her as "it" would be dehumanizing, imo.


She probably just likes hearing her name.

She probably just likes hearing her name.

And making everyone kowtow to her bizarre demands.

Would "drama queen" be inappropriate?

Only if you aren't gay, too. Can't use terms like "queen" unless you're one of them.
