College election marred by gender-based microaggression; Student referred to as ‘Ms.’ rather than ‘Mx.’

Kaylee Tornay covered the election for the Daily Emerald as well as a couple of controversies that arose, resulting in the filing of official grievances. Elle Mallon of the Ducks F.I.R.S.T. campaign filed her first grievance against the We Are Oregon campaign “for holding its kickoff event in a building with no gender-inclusive bathrooms.”

Two days later, Mallon accused We Are Oregon campaign manager Taylor Allison of sexual harassment — “because she referred to Mallon as ‘Ms.’ when Mallon identifies with the use of ‘Mx.’”

Despite an email apology from Allison, Mallon filed a second grievance saying Allison chose to misgender her. Mallon explained that her pronouns include not only mx but also xe, xem, and hyr...

  • How about just calling him confused?

    • Frau Katze

      This person is definitely bizarre. Might be worth a Google alert to keep track of him/her/whatever.

      He looks like Julian Cope.
      I’m not saying that’s a reason to be confused.
      But, Copey was one fucked up dude.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        The only thing I remember about Julian Cope is that he had one or two good songs and that was the end of his career.
        What was he into?

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          The lore is that in the beginning Julian Cope, Pete Wylie and Ian McCulloch were briefly in a band together called the Crucial Three.
          They split up and Cope formed The Teardrop Explodes, Wylie formed Wah! and McCulloch started Echo and the Bunnymen.
          The Teardrop Explodes were awesome.
          I heard of Cope as a solo artist first and then found out he had been in a band.
          Kinda like finding out Morrissey was in the Smiths.

      Most of them have severe psychiatric problems that will continue to go untreated so that people can be seen to be politically correct.

      By not admitting that the King has no clothes, they are doing a disservice to these people who need to be in psychiatric facilities.

      Not to mention supremely punchable.

  • k1962

    Maybe s/he needs to come with a handbook.

    • andycanuck

      You omitted the “it”… s/h/it.

      • k1962

        Good one.

        • andycanuck

          Thanks. ;^)

      I’m a man, I never read the manual. Not even from IKEA.

      • k1962

        I’m jealous :/ I can barely build something basic from IKEA, with the manual! I’m not a man and in the past it wouldn’t be too difficult for you to figure out what I am.

    • Justin St.Denis

      But the pages would end up stuck together

  • Brett_McS

    The crack in the dam wall was “Ms”. Now the flood.

    So screw that: it’s back to “Miss” for unmarried women, “Mrs” for married

    • Yup. And just freaks for the freaks.

    • Clausewitz

      I called my wife Ms once. It was a long week on the couch after that one.

  • Ron MacDonald

    If these individuals keep this up they will drive themselves right back into the closet because people are beginning to get fed up listening to their constant bitching.

    • UCSPanther

      There are quite a few anti-SJW blogs around the internet written by various people across the political spectrum.

    If SJWs want a word war over pronouns, they’ve got one. It’s a war they cannot win because (a) most people see it as stupid, and (b) we don’t have to “fire a shot” aka expend any energy to win because we just don’t bother changing our vocabulary as our strategy.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    There was a REASON trannys used to get their asses beaten up.
    Going with my “everything happens for a reason” hypothesis, they were probibly NOT originally beaten-up, but it came to that after being such outrageous pains in the asses, that it became easier just to kick their teeth in rather than listen to them.

    • mobuyus

      Just watch out for Adams Apple, and their is no such thing as a twelve inch Clitoris.

      • lolwut?

        You haven’t see women on roids then….

  • andycanuck

    Shouldn’t the tranny toilet protest have been named “Tranny See; Tranny Do”?

  • eMan14

    It’s pronouns should also include xfu (extremely fucked up). We’re just heading down a weird rabbit hole. And any amount of drugs won’t make it sound normal. In fact normal will soon enough be the odd one out.

  • ntt1

    he is barking mad. Why must society be forced to accept his mental illness as normal?

  • Canadian

    Why pay attention to this he/she/it ?

  • Shebel

    Looks like an ugly man with bad hair.

  • Gary

    Has anyone burst this persons reality bubble to tell them they are a guy in a dress, and THAT’S it.

  • phuque uguugle

    The rag heads would love to teach “it” how to fly from a tall building <:o)

    • Shebel

      Practise makes perfect. Nothing wrong with that.

  • Shebel

    He reminds me of some of these Lovelies that go around protesting the Rape Culture so prevalent in all males. I guess it gets them off.
    Hard to tell where the sweat stops and wet spot begins.

    MX? Motocross

  • wooted

    Remember back in the days when we wasted our time and effort at university on rubbish like learning so we could have careers and stupid stuff like that.
    But then that was when we also had to work for a living.

    • Justin St.Denis

      One can still work for a living. My kids all do, and they are alright.

  • Raymond Hietapakka


    • Justin St.Denis

      Love it! And I usually hate “forms”.

  • Hard Little Machine

    I am genuinely baffled – why be a man who pretends to be a woman and also object to being referred to as a woman?

  • tom_billesley

    “How do transgender students fit ….”
    They’ll have to look at each other’s bits and sort it out for themselves.
