Taxpayer dollars at work in producing a gender pronoun guide:

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is offering a how-to guide for students to help them use the appropriate pronouns when referring to other students and professors.

A chart on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center’s (LGBTRC) website lists twelve appropriate pronouns to use, including fae, ae, e, ey, per, ve, xe, ze, and zie, in addition to the traditional he, she, and they, which can be used singularly or plurally. The chart also lists the possessive and reflexive variations of each pronoun.

However, the chart is “not an exhaustive list” of all preferred pronouns, according to the page’s FAQ. It stresses that some students prefer using their name as a pronoun, while others use the plural “they” to refer to themselves singularly.
