“This disciplinary policy appeared to contradict Brooklyn College’s procedure for class disruptions.”

This is a reminder of how rapidly things have changed. Would this have been an issue even ten years ago?

A professor at Brooklyn College promised to kick students out of class for “misgendering” other students.

Brandon Aultman, who teaches LGBT politics at the university, wrote a clause in the course syllabus for “Fundamental Concepts in LGBTQ Studies” that threatens to remove any student from class if he or she engages in “intentional misgendering.”

Pronouns, Gender Identity, and Racial Insensitivity: My name is B. Call me B. I am nonbinary, transfeminine. For my information concerning the use of these terms please consult http://transstudent.org. I use gender-neutral pronouns (they/them). I adhere to a strict policy of respect for the gender, sexual, and racial identities of my students. Intentional misgendering, as with any attempt to slur another student’s personal integrity on the basis of race, ethnicity, or religion, will result in immediate dismissal from class for that session. Continued abuses will result in disciplinary action with the appropriate administrators.
