Mytheos Holt went there, and he says that Andrew Breitbart is wrong. Freshman orientation in political correctness at Wesleyan was far worse than Breitbart realized.
For instance, students had to mandatorily attend issues workshops run by activist groups, such as BiLeGaTA (standing for â€œBisexual, Lesbian, Gay, Transgender Asexualâ€) which proceeded to explain that:
1. Gender is a social construct.
2. There are at least five genders* (what the other three are is not explained), not two, and thatâ€™s a conservative estimate.
3. The proper pronoun to use to describe transgendered people is not â€œheâ€ or â€œsheâ€ but rather â€œze.â€ The possessive form of this word is â€œhir.â€ The word to use in formal address (as in â€œSirâ€ or â€œMadameâ€) is â€œZiram.â€
4. Anyone who disagrees with any of this, or even questions it, is automatically â€œheteronormativeâ€ or worse, â€œheterosexist.â€
*Curiously enough, BiLeGaTA roughly agrees with the inhabitants of mid- last century Alexandria:
[T]here are more than five sexes and only demotic Greek seems to distinguish among them. The sexual provender that lies to hand is staggering in its variety and its profusion. You would never mistake it for a happy place.
â€”Lawrence Durrell on Alexandria in Justine (1957).
Unfortunately, Durrell, too, neglected to explain which exactly all those other sexes/genders were.
