This is just AWESOME! We all know that the Left continues to assault our traditional cultural norms and will do so until there is nothing to “conserve”. The biggest deal is “gender identity” and “gender fluidity” which continues their nihilism onslaught against absolute values by declaring anybody can call themselves pretty much anything they want as far as which sex they are (male, female, and pretty much every stupid pitstop along the way that they can think of – anything to blur any distinction between anything and anyone). First relegated to Academia’s Ivory Tower, this movement, first started by the Feminist Critical Thinking, it is now pouring out at the rest of us like Ebola outbound from a ruptured infected cell.
Lately, we’ve seen college campuses starting the process of mandating that anyone can define what they are AND what the rest of us MUST call them with pronouns the battleground. (NYC, too, with HUGE fines if employers and other employees refuse to use the “proper” pronouns). So, one enterprising lad by the name of Grant Strobl decided to go all Alinsky on the University of Michigan. His choice of pronouns by which he must be called?
Sidenote: Alinsky’s Rule for Radicals Rule #4:
RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
From Hot Air:
When the University of Michigan not only told the students to choose their own pronoun of preference but threatened disciplinary action against professors and administrators who failed to comply, one young man saw an opportunity. Grant Strobl is apparently quite happy with the gender he was “assigned” at birth and didn’t care to be referred to as zie or hir, but he did opt for something a bit more royal sounding… His Majesty. (Fox News)
As Heat Street‘s Politics Editor Jillian Melchior reported this week, a new policy at the University of Michigan allows students to choose their preferred pronouns — including the gender-neutral “they” and “ze” — to appear on class rosters.
With that in mind, one conservative student, Grant Strobl, who is also chairman of the Young Americans for Freedom board of governors, decided to troll the university administration by officially requesting his pronoun to be changed to “His Majesty.”

Will the professors be disciplined or removed if they fail to refer to His Majesty as His Majesty? It seems to me that there wouldn’t be any choice in the matter. The school only offered all of those transgender pronouns as suggestions, not a definitive list from which one must choose. They left the door open for pretty much any interpretation and His Majesty has simply offered his own interpretation. I’m sure one could argue that Grant Strobl isn’t technically a member of the royal family of any country, but a student with a Y chromosome isn’t technically a female either. Oh, what a tangled web we weave…
Moral of the story: when the Left overreaches standing on the lip of the Logic Chasm, well, help them out.
