He . . . She . . Ze?!: Most Absurd Language Police Yet

By Debbie Schlussel

When I was a freshman at The University of Michigan, the thuggish, long-haired, far-left hippie in a punk band teaching assistant of my  English class reduced a grade on my paper by a full grade because I used the word, “Congressman, ” and not the gender neutral, “Congressperson.”  I told him, “This is a bunch of verbal manure . . . or is that, ‘personure?'”  Thomas Sowell found out about it and mentioned it in one of his syndicated columns.  It was ridiculous, but at the time Michigan had an absurd “inclusive” language policy, which stated that if you used words like “he,” or “fireman,” or, even “mother,” you were being “uninclusive,” and therefore, you were somehow a bigot.  Dumb, dumb, dumb.  But leftists get off on being the language and speech police. Stretching the limits on political correctness is their ultimate aphrodisiac.


Scary Timothy Jean Corvidae: “Ze” is the University of Michigan’s Speech Police

And, so, it’s no surprise that my alma mater is once again involved in this ridiculous  language orthodoxy.  While our Islamic enemies are teaching their kids to use guns, rig IEDs, and destroy us, some gender-ambiguous bizarro in the University of Michigan School of Social Work, Timothy Jean Corvidae, who wants the University to get rid of the use of gender specific pronouns like “he” and “she” in favor of “Ze.”  Corvidae is both a student and on the University of Michigan staff. The fact that Corvidae has a man’s name, but identifies on her/his/its/ze’s Facebook page as a woman (where he/she/it/ze looks like a pre-op male-to-female transsexual) interested in dating women, might have something to do with it. (It’s creepy to see a photo, above, of he/she/it/ze hugging a kid.)

Sadly, the University faculty Senate is considering the measure to get rid of the pronouns, and could refer it Michigan’s President for approval.  Yes, “Idiocracy,” ain’t just a movie or our future.  It’s our present.  And, frankly, if they don’t identify with any of the genders, what if they identify with pedophiles or those who engage in bestiality.  They need to feel “included” in our language, too, don’t they?  It’s only fair if we’re gonna subvert English to the warped sexual urges and identities of every weirdo minority on earth. Maybe they can use the words “horse” and “camel” or “molesta [my new slang, hip word for child molestation, b/c who are we to judge that it’s not cool, right?]” as adverbs.  “Molesta” went to the store with “camel’s” daughter.  “Molesta” didn’t have enough money to pay for candy for “camel daughter.” Yup, that’s, um, “gender neutral,” and is a whole lot more entertaining than “ze,” which just sounds like some former Nazi hiding in South America.

Timothy Corvidae is a student in the University’s School of Social Work. Corvidae doesn’t identify with any specific gender and uses the pronoun “ze” instead of “she” or “he.”

Yup, and far left professors are actually going along with this instead of failing this candy-ass like he/she/it/ze deserves. Uh-huh, exactly the type of “social worker” and future psychologist you want–someone who is that confused and insanely obsessed with gender pronouns.

Corvidae is a member of a group of people on campus who face language barriers as a result of their decision to not identify with a specific gender. Though these individuals represent a minority of students, their cause has recently made its way to the forefront of campus discussion.

Barriers? What barriers? Either you know how to speak English or you don’t.

Recently the Michigan Student Assembly passed a resolution to recommend removing gender-specific language from the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities and some students and professors are discussing mandating the use of gender-neutral language in University classrooms.

Ah, the far left Michigan Student Assembly. When I served on this “august body,” I was considered extreme far right for opposing similar language police declarations. They wanted to kick me off, but couldn’t.

In its simplest form, gender-neutral language encompasses the use of the singular “they” as well as non-binary pronouns like ze, in place of the traditional he/she. This form of speech eliminates any word with connotations of gender like “chairman,” opting instead for the nonexclusive “chair.”

Yup, even the Republican Party, nationally and in Michigan, has already adopted using a piece of furniture as a faux-title, so, in essence, these nuts have basically already won or are on home stretch.

Corvidae said finding alternatives to the traditional gendered language is important because there is an intense level of exclusion in texts that only use binary language.

“I don’t identify either way (as male or female),” Corvidae said. “When I read texts that use him or her, I feel like, ‘Where am I in this text?’ And it’s as though I’m invisible.”

If only. Where are you? You’re not in the insane asylum, where you desperately belong.

Anne Hermann, interim chair of the Women’s Studies Department, said eliminating gendered undertones is essential to ensure fairness in language.

Getting rid of tenure for useless lesbian weirdos who teach worthless BS like this is essential to ensure fairness in education . . . or, rather, any education at all. And fairness for humans and Western society, for that matter.

“If I were the ‘chairman’ of the Women’s Studies Department, there would be this incredible disconnect between my title and who I am,” she said. “And I would be constantly reminded that I’m not really supposed to be in my position.”

OMG, I’m laughing my butt off. Is this for real? Am I actually reading this bad SNL skit?

Noah Meeks is a volunteer at the Spectrum Center — the University’s office for LGBT affairs. Meeks said traditional debates over gender have been limited to eliminating language associated with men in situations that are meant to be all encompassing.

“We rejected ‘he’ as an all-encompassing pronoun,” he said. “With ‘him or her,’ we need to recognize that some people don’t identify with either, and although there are few of them, they still need to be accounted for.”

Um, yeah, some people don’t identify with the human species, and there’s a loony bin and medications ready to go. It’s not the language that needs to be altered. It’s some people . . . with shock therapy.

“There’s more awareness, more openness and more resistance to the idea of a binary gender system,” he said.

In recognition of non-gendered students on campus, the Michigan Student Assembly passed a resolution to amend the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities to use gender-neutral language exclusively as part of a package of recommendations to the student code.

The resolution is currently being reviewed by the Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs — the leading faculty governing body on campus — and if passed, will continue to University President Mary Sue Coleman for final approval.

Loren Sherry, assistant director of the Spectrum Center, helped to compile the resolution. He said that when he went through the approximately 10-page Statement and replaced every use of binary language with a gender-neutral alternative, he was very specific about the choices he made.

TEN pages for this BS?! Just draw a picture of a man with his penis cut-off (and Western civilization and the classics with their penises cut off). That only takes one page. And it says the same thing.

In addition to the work by MSA and other student groups, in interviews last week many professors said they agree that gender-neutral thinking should be used in the classroom.

Robin Queen, professor of linguistics, wrote in an e-mail interview with The Michigan Daily that educators should promote awareness about the exclusionary aspects of language.

“The main issue, in my opinion, is to help writers (be they students, administrators, instructors or staff members) become aware that there are choices to be made and that those choices have consequences,” Queen wrote in the e-mail.

Yeah, the choice to drop out of Michigan and go to a real university where they give you an education instead of subjecting you to this insane bullcrap. And the consequences that an “education” not even worthy of a Jonestown cult might some day cause people to wake up and stop funding these people with their tax money (Michigan is a public university relying heavily on state and federal funds and grants).

Corvidae said teaching gender-neutral language is an important step because so many people are unaware of how to handle gender in their speech.

“One of the biggest challenges with gender-neutral language is that people don’t know how to use it,” Corvidae said. “They feel embarrassed if they don’t know how to read people’s gender because that’s something that’s really important in our society.”

Ding, ding, ding. You finally came close to reality. This whole episode is an embarrassment. I’d be embarrassed in the presence of anyone using “ze” as a pronoun. It’s bad enough to hear someone call themselves the “chair.”

Corvidae said using gender-neutral language in the classroom allows students a “safe setting” to practice non-exclusionary speech.

A safe setting? PUH-LEEZE. If I’m an Islamic terrorist, that giant swamp of limpness epitomized by humans is gonna be my first target. Ze-hu Akbar, Ka-Boom.

Aric Knuth, lecturer in Department of English, said though he is often skeptical of new policies, he was surprised to hear no policy is in place.

“It surprised me because we are people who are in the business of language,” he said. “And we understand how language interacts with and often represents other kinds of big intellectual problems in our lives.”

Uh, dude, the big intellectual problem is that you have a job teaching English in the United States of America.

Despite the lack of an official policy, professors continue to encourage the exploration of different language options.

The Department of English ruled in favor of the singular “they” as grammatically correct, and many professors in the Women’s Studies Department implement gender-neutrality into their curriculum to some extent.

LSA junior Kelsey Sovereign said gender-neutral thinking is strongly encouraged in her women’s studies classes.

“In our society you often are either designated as a man or a woman, but we talk about not necessarily labeling things as one or the other,” she said.

She’s right. Tomorrow, I’m gonna stop being unfair to bananas and call them soda. And apples, well . . . it’s not nice to exclude them from the meat group. Gonna call ’em steak.

She also said that specific assignments often call exclusively for gender-neutral language.

Wow, someone’s parents are blowin’ a whole lot of money.

Keith Reisinger, graduate student instructor for the Women’s Studies Department, said the issue reaches far beyond any departmental policy or the confines of the University.

“I think we as a whole need to change how we talk about gender and people,” he said.

Me, too. About Mr. Reisinger, “ze” is an idiot.

Like I said, our enemies are teaching their kids how to kill us, and we’re too busy destroying masculinity, gender roles, and the English language with this absurd exercise in the trivial. And we wonder why they hate us.

This is a sliver of why.

The truly insane are running this country. And we allow transsexuals, people with confused identities and people who dwell on errant nonsense to set policy in this country. In an earlier age, they would all be executed. In more civilized times, they would have been sterilized first and then locked up in the asylum. Now the mental inmates and physically screwed up freaks are running our society.

The future of America is far from assured.

I’m curious how he came upon “Ze”. In Hebrew, “ze” is “this/that”.

Off topic for Debbie – you thought Sarah Palin was a Baby Mama? She’s frugal compared to a Muslim Baby Mama in the UK who gets British taxpayers for her to raise SIX kids in a L2 million pound mansion costing L7,000 pounds a month. Meet Essama Marjam. She also gets a boatload of public benefits!

Single mother-of-six finds £2m mansion on the net… and then gets YOU to pay £7,000 A Month Rent>

No mention in the headline she’s a MUSLIM mom. The future of America, not so far behind!

@Jewish Marksman: Check out Corvidae’s facebook page. He/she/it/sheit is a part of Channukah group, probably knows Hebrew.

And also look at his/her/zit/sheitz other facebook groups – “Drag King Rebellion”, “Transgender Day of Remembrance”, “Against Gay Marriage? Then Don’t Get One and Shut the F [expanded] Up”, “Like the Mormons did to Utah, let’s take over Iowa!!!!!!!!.”

Corvidae is a dude/gal who wants to force others to think he’s a gal/dude, and obviously with an dangerous agenda that sadly seems to be working.

    NormanF on February 15, 2010 at 5:59 pm

Is there nothing else to talk about among these people who have no idea who or what they are? Do we need to change our whole english language to define people. The left has been at this game a long time. When they decided it was demeaning to be a Mrs. and you became a Ms. They have no idea how wonderful it is that we are all unique individuals with unique talents. But worse they have no IDEA how much I do not care about their idiocracies and the definition of their sexual role in this world.

“I think we as a whole need to change how we talk about gender and people,” he said.

Me, too. About Mr. Reisinger, “ze” is an idiot – I whole heartedly agree with you! Great article!

Paula Tyler on February 15, 2010 at 5:21 pm

@NormanF: Amazing!! Even though the UK is in the crapper because the government encourages and “helps” people like Marjam, this article is stunning! But something like this might actually happen in America sooner or later, the way things are going.

Anonymous Twit on February 15, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Debbie may cover that story in a future post. Between obssessing over a world with no genders and granting Muslims welfare benefits so they can breed us out of existence, its a sign of where America is headed. We’re devaluing all the things that keep us alive while on the other hand, we’re inviting our enemies to come in here and help us finish the job.

“Gender neutral thinking” in a “WOMEN’S study group?

Massgopguy on February 15, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    I don’t think they realize being a woman is sexist. With women like them, who needs men. Ultimately, in the leftist utopia of the future, marriage, the family, children – all that which defines bourgeois existence will have no place in the Brave New World. And neither will love.

    NormanF on February 15, 2010 at 6:06 pm

Are telling me that we can NOT agree that men are men, and woman and woman?
What’s up with all this PC non-sense BS about not knowing who you are?
You either have a penis, or you don’t?
Who are you?
Are you a man, or a mouse?
Are you a woman, or a Sow?

NormanF on February 15, 2010 at 6:08 pm

This is one of the ultimates in PC stupidity. Someone once told me I supported genocide because I used “gender specific” language. Even word processing programs highlight gender specific words and give dumb cumbersome suggestions. When I write, it’s for the sake of clarity, and I don’t worry about offending someone who isn’t paying attention.

James J. Kilpatrick wrote a great book called, The Fine Print, which partially touched on this nonsense. This crap was suggested some 20 years ago, so I take it, it’s worse now. There was a suggestion that “his” and “her” be changed to “hier.” We gotta include everyone.

But that’s what PC is about; People under Control. And the most annoying part of this, a lot of time, money, and energy is going to be wasted on this. Political Correctness is getting really stupid! No wonder Susy can’t write. She’s afraid to.

John on February 15, 2010 at 6:18 pm

Timothy Corvidae’s very name is repugnant to his thesis. First, Timothy is historically a male name — not to mention that it is biblically derived. Corvidae is obviously female (the “AE” at the end of the name almost always connotes the feminine). In short he insults gender neutrals everywhere.


Badgergizmo on February 15, 2010 at 6:22 pm

I think that they should identify with worms and leaches, since annelids have resolved such issues. Also, they are capable of swinging both ways when it comes to reproduction, since the sexual and assexual methods are open to them. Timothy Jean Corvidae should be referred to as “Wormy”.

Worry01 on February 15, 2010 at 6:29 pm

If they really want to do this right, there are a lot of words that have Man and Men in them. I wonder if this drives the PC crowd mad.


John on February 15, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    Your list reveals how far the English language would have to be radically purged to make it truly “gender-neutral.” Which is a hopeless task.

    NormanF on February 15, 2010 at 7:12 pm

My first thought was to say that the inmates took over the asylum, but of course I was beaten to it by prior comments

Really something — here is a state which is quite likely the hardest hit by the business downturn, and instead of trying to impart the best skills and learning that they can to the students, in the hopes that they can find some kind of work, they are doing this kind of stuff, completely divorced not only from common-sense knowledge, but by the fact that, if anything, students need an even better foundation of knowledge to get employment these days.

The U of M of course gets state funding. There used to be a time, long ago, when the state legislatures exercised some kind of control over the nuttiness in these colleges. In the 50s, they helped cleanse the universities of commie professors, but all that went up in smoke in the 60s.

If sensible people ever assume political office in Michigan, which one would hope (but not expect) given the dire condition of the state, maybe they can do something about all of this.

Little Al on February 15, 2010 at 6:56 pm

But I’m not very hopeful. Of course, as you said, it would be good if the taxpayers put a stop to all of this, but the few restraints on this nuthouse are evaporating. Now the car companies have, for the most part joined the asylum. GM at one time was an influence for realism on this campus, long, long ago, but now it, too, has been taken over by the inmates.

The scary thing is that Michigan is blazing a trail for the rest of the country.

Little Al on February 15, 2010 at 7:11 pm

    I don’t think it made Debbie feel like less of woman to be called a “freshman” or to write in conventional English. She and I are the tail end of an era when a liberal arts education still meant something in this country. At the time it promoted fresh perspectives and left one with the means to question whether something was right. Today, a college education is designed to produce stultifying conformity and to inculcate stupidity into the future leaders of tomorrow. That’s how much the country is changing and the worst thing is few parents really know what goes on in the colleges and universities around the country.

    NormanF on February 15, 2010 at 7:18 pm

Dude[I mean that in a gender non-specific way]! This is insanity. Not that this gender bender has these notions, but that they are getting any play. But monkeying with the language has been going on for a very long time. Daniel Webster did it. He decided we had to have “American” English and created deviations from our mother tongue. I’m sure it was a nineteenth century English teacher with to much time on their hands who decided one can’t end a sentence with a preposition – what a stupid rule. Which way is up? Oops, I did it again.

Debbie, your story about your lousy TA dinking your paper reminded me of something that happened in my University experience. I studied engineering and getting good grades was real work. Meanwhile all the fuzzy degree types had tons of classes that were easy to cherry pick. Luckily I stumbled onto a history minor. I had had 5 years of English in high school (4 years of honors English and Basic College Skills and Basic Composition as electives my senior year). Getting good grades in history was as easy as writing good papers. Then one quarter I got a history TA who was a Hungarian immigrant who decided to be critical of everything I wrote. English as a heavily accented second language and he’s criticizing my writing? What a total asshat. The following quarter I found out which sections he was responsible for and picked a schedule that would give me a different TA; I went right back to getting A’s on my papers.

And I’m sooooo glad I chose engineering. Even to this day, there is very little that liberals can do to screw up an engineering curriculum. Other than to allow the unchecked infusion of foreign students, that is.

twestwood on February 15, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Yes, she did not claim that Islam was her motivation and excuse, unlike Major Hasan and the Diaper Bomber. Also, this is not a news site. Try Yahoo News if you want to keep up with that and other mundane crime.

    Worry01 on February 15, 2010 at 10:59 pm

@Worry01, that’s my point. 🙂

@twestwood, this is a private blog and the owner can pick and choose what subject she can write about. On that note, since the shooter was not Muslim, that is actually unique. If that were the case, not much would have been written or done about it. The Liberal media would have desperately tired to keep the shooter’s name and religion a secret– unless HE or SHE was non-Muslim.

He, she, her, him, hers, his, man, woman, men, women, girl, boy, ladies, gals, guys, dudes.

Gender neutral language? I’m sure the French, Germans, Italians and Spanish-speakers, among others whose language divides nouns by gender, will be happy to jump on this bandwagon of stupidity.

Tempus Fugit on February 15, 2010 at 11:57 pm

This is what happens when life becomes too easy. When you don’t have to expend the time and energy that our forebears did in order to feed, clothe and shelter themselves, you have time and energy to waste on nonsense like this.

Animal rights, environmentalism, gay marriage, gays in the military, “gender-specific” language etc, etc, etc…these are all things that should be laughed right out of the room, but since there is no challenge in meeting our basic needs anymore, coupled with the need to feel like our lives “matter,” we now see vast sums of energy and money spent on trivial, unimportant crap.

The English language shouldn’t have to change to accomodate a few people who can’t seem to figure out just what the hell they are.

Matt on February 16, 2010 at 12:45 am

“I don’t identify either way (as male or female),” Corvidae said. “When I read texts that use him or her, I feel like, ‘Where am I in this text?’ And it’s as though I’m invisible.”

Actually, Corvidae, you are invisible–you’re so far out in the left field direction, you aren’t even in the ball park, if you ever were.

So, where are you in this text? Who cares. You’re invisible, right?

When you received that gender-neutral train set (it’s simply an “it”), it’s too bad you lost a few sections of tracks of human respect, decency, and common sense that makes the train of reality move in a healthy direction. Consequently, your train of reality derailed completely. No wonder you can’t find yourself in any text. Your engine/guide for reality got dumped in the swamp which makes you invisible.

Talk about asinine!

Epitah on the tombstone of America should read: “America you were a great experiment, until the nutcases ran the show. Thanks for the memories.”

Debbie, this ‘verbal manure’ as you call it has been passed in California in the form of SB777. The maggot Arnold signed this bill into legislation. No Prom Kings or Prom Queens. Well the Prom Queen could be a boy. No distinction required. Mother couldn’t be identified as a female, because it could imply only a woman could be a mother.


California’s perversion is spreading to other states like Michigan.

Debbie you said,

“Like I said, our enemies are teaching their kids how to kill us, and we’re too busy destroying masculinity, gender roles, and the English language with this absurd exercise in the trivial. And we wonder why they hate us.

This is a sliver of why.”

Thank you Debbie, you are so right. The enemy from the outside sees the debauchery of America and are thinking ‘Don’t bring that to my culture’. It in no means justifies their actions, but this perversion doesn’t help us either.

Or maybe we are in a race to destroy ourselves before Islam does.

Isn’t there some document we know of that states something like “… all MEN are created equal”? I guess the Founders of the U.S. were sexist as well.

Jarhead on February 16, 2010 at 10:54 am

Canada has already gone quite a ways down this road of “gender neutrality”. The terms “mother” and “father” are no longer acceptable on a birth certificate (since it indicates gender). Ditto for marriage licenses — can’t mention “husband” or “wife.” The new PC term is “spouse” (until of course we get around to humans marrying horses I guess — since the term “spouse” implies “human”). Incredible idiocy.

J.S. on February 16, 2010 at 11:28 am

Since they must be gender neutral, does that mean they will no longer have afffirmative action (The University won one of its two cases a couple years back)?

I_AM_ME on February 16, 2010 at 1:03 pm

Are you SERIOUS????????????????????????? Sometimes I am embarrassed to be a Wolverine. This ranks right along with installing the friggin’ footbaths at the cost of the University a few years back. Do something that benefits a few with no concrete practical use. I can’t speak for all women but I for one LOVE for my husband to open a door, carry the shopping bags, push the shopping cart. Further, I feel blessed that my husband is teaching my son, his step-son, how to treat a women. Oh wait, should I have said spouse? If I did how would you know if I was partnered with a man or woman? You wouldn’t. Maybe we should also adopt the “texting lingo” that has become pervasive in this great society and simply abolish proper use of the English language. While we’re at it, let’s just stop teaching English. Who needs to know how to construct a proper sentence, let alone the proper use of a PRONOUN!!!!!Finally, aren’t there more important issues that should be dealt with? Really? This is at the top of Timothy’s priority list? Maybe Timmy ought to worry more about getting a decent haircut instead. God help us all.

OH, I call FAKE!!! This is just a re-hash of the old Saturday Night Live “It’s time for androgyny– it’s PAT” skits…

But just so I understand Norton- you know, that I know, that you know that I know… that “TJ” is a man, who wants to be a woman, who wants to be a lesbian, who wants to have it’s genitals removed, if there currently are any … ???

Oh I’m dizzy now.
