Taking a page straight out of George Orwell’s 1984, the Chicago Public School (CPS) system released new guidelines mandating all students and employees to use the pronouns and names requested by the transgender and "gender non-conforming" individuals, or face consequences. Trans and gender non-conforming students may also use the restroom and locker-room of their choice.
The CPS system released two sets of extremely similar guidelines; one for “Adults” and one for “Students.” Both explicitly state that “appropriate consequences” will be divvied out if an individual “intentionally” fails to use the requested pronouns of another individual. Kindly, they gave us examples of “common” pronouns: “’they,’ ‘their,’ ‘ze,’ ‘he’ and ‘she.’”

Our educational system is collapsing and this is what government and school districts are concerned with? The use of pronouns isn't why the Chicago public school system, particularly the inner city schools regularly garner such low test scores from their students.
Where's the consequences for Chicago's atrocious teachers?
The left is flushing our society straight down the toilet.

Sounds like the Political Correction trainwreck just arrived in Chicago with a delivery of hurt feelings and I'm jumping onboard so from now on, everyone is to refer to me as ze the 3rd, emperor of atoms.
WTF is ze?
Oh, and the school can’t inform Johnny’s parents about his new “identity” without the “student’s permission.” “[W]hen speaking with other staff members, parents, guardians, or third parties, school staff should not disclose a student’s preferred name, pronoun, or other confidential information pertaining to the student’s transgender or gender nonconforming status without the student’s permission, unless authorized to do so by the Law Department,” read the guidelines.
