Transgender individuals compromise .03 percent of the population, to invent a gender-neutral pronoun to appease a fraction of the population is patently ridiculous, and yet another example of political -correctness run amok.
Transgenders aren’t a legitimate minority deserving of special protection, they suffer from a psychiatric disorder (gender dysphoria). Should Oxford University students be forced to address people who suffer from multiple personality disorder with the plural pronoun “they.” And should nutjobs who suffer from delusions of grandeur be addressed as “Napoleon”, or whatever historical person they imagine themselves to be?
I could care less if somebody identifies as transgender or gender fluid, but in the real world there are only two genders (male and female) and only two gender specific pronouns (he and she.)
In a prestigious university where political-correctness prevails, and in a mental institution where madness prevails, nobody will look at you strange if you use a gender-neutral pronoun. But in the real world you’d be well-advised to address people as “he” or “she” if you don’t want to get beat to a bloody pulp.
