As the College Fix noted, it was a ridiculous thing to put into practice. Gender neutral pronouns?!

The University of Tennessee has deleted from its website a gender-neutral pronoun list thatcalled on the campus community to use terms such as “ze, xe, xem, xyr, zirs and hirs,” prompting nationwide controversy, ridicule, and concern.

The decision was made by campus leaders, with UT system President Joe DiPietro saying in a letter to the Board of Trustees that he was “deeply concerned about the attention this matter continues to receive and the harm it has had on the reputation of the University of Tennessee,” The Tennessean reports.
