Romans Had Slavery, So I Guess The Roman Alphabet Requires Replacement

Via Instapundit, it sounds like some people at his university may be smoking mother nature:

University of Tennessee tells staff and students to stop using ‘he’ and ‘she’ – and switch to ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead

What’s blatantly obvious to even the most casual observer is that a certain “gay rights official at the university” needs to stop being such a conservative reactionary, like the author of this post.
A truly “new language regime” that “will make the university ‘welcoming and inclusive'” should scuttle the archaic alphabet that has “people feeling ‘marginalized'”. Why not replace it with alternating sequences of LOLcats, LOLdogs, and other equal vivacious creatures? Such an alphabet could be rotated weekly, and impossible to compose via traditional scribing instruments, to be more even-handed toward those who are not even handed.
This blog doubles down on its strident call for pushing technology and societal communications right off the cliff, in order to save both from the millennia of testosterone-driven oppression. Let us enable the logic-free future we deserve. Or, to quote Andrew Klavan:

Update: once again, trigger warnings start with the character set.

    Does anyone on the left realize that EVERY DAMNED NOUN in Spanish has a gender?

    Have they told all their new “dreamers” that they are planning on destroying the Spanish language, too?

    …Or does the Spanish language get a pass on leftist thinking the same way the Islamic religion gets a pass?

    So a self-loathing, morbidly obese, androgynous lesbian wants to mutilate our beautiful language so “xe” can feel better about the fact that she never came to terms with gender, sexuality and body image. What a f*d up troll…

    As usual, you nailed it. It turns out that the new rules only apply to white people. Of course, white leftists will eagerly use a new alphabet and grammar in an effort to debase themselves even further. And conservative whites will try out their own new language by telling the leftists “u r sofa king wee tall dead” and see how that goes over.

    But in fact, I have a quick and easy solution to all racism claims. To wit: we all say that we are black, by virtue of the fact that we have at least 1% African, or African American blood in our bodies, then urge progressives to prove the falsity of the claim. For instance, I come from a long line of petty thieves and con artists, and, while I may visually appear lily-white, in fact, I am part black from generations past. So I say, let the scoffers pull my ancestry records – if they can find them, and disprove my statement. Let them do that for the millions and millions of white citizens in the entire country.

    Then again, I may be part Latina. I’m pretty sure I am, according to my now-deceased grandparents. And this statement is at least as well substantiated as Fauxcahontas’s claim.

    And, because we are ALL part black and part Hispanic, as far as anyone can prove, we are all minorities, and deserving of full use of equal employment opportunities. Or else.

    This conundrum ought to keep progressives busy for quite awhile. You know, while they verify (or not) my Kenyan, Mexican, native American and Pacific Islander roots. And, as minorities, we are not subject to the language constraints of the cracker leftists.

    What gets me is that in allowing Muslims or Hispanics to have a pass on all the stuff they’re ramming down my throat, they are treating the Muslims and Hispanics as “the other.”

    And why do I have to live under the progressive agenda? Because I’m white and therefore fall under their jurisdiction because they captured the steering wheel of my culture.

    You don’t have to live under the leftist agenda, that’s the beauty of it! Like me, you learn to frquently say, “screw you, hippie” and end of story. 😀

    $5 says she’s a vegetarian or vegan.
    Everyone I know who tried vegetarianism for years is colossally corpulent and usually in a bad mood.
    Aside from the unearned moral superiority of some vegetarians, which can be quite annoying, the constant state of glycolysis beats the crap out of the human body.

    Not a problem—all nouns must be neuter gender. Pronouns remain the difficulty.

    Highly insightful. Gets to the alpha and omega.

    Yeah. Unless it’s a gay hippie who’s decided to force you to bake her a wedding cake.

    Maybe. Because my Christianity is very much in your face. So, I would spend literally hours talking about God, His plans, His commands, etc, etc, etc, to the prospective “married” couple. Until they got sick of it and left. I would literally evangelize them – oh so nicely and kindly, so that could hardly call it evangelism – until they gave up. I would propose cakes that had scripture on them, etc.

    In point of fact, I would post signs and messages making it clear that I specialize in Biblical cakes. That would be my niche, and I’d make it work. So honestly, I would gladly bake a cake for a gay couple knowing that I had made my point spiritually on their cake. So everyone would see it. Again, I think that I, as a clever woman, could make that work.

    This sort of thing has to be inevitable. The Maoist in the leftists eventually had to rear its head. We don’t call it cultural revolution for nothing.

    I think that for SJWs, and certainly for those who try to insist we use stupid, made-up pronouns, we should replace ‘you’ with ‘poo’.
