Pronauns

Peterson is right that legislature on the subject of pronouns is bad idea. It is rather silly that I can butcher person's name, but must use right pronoun. But he's wrong about being so stubborn on his refusal to call people whatever way they want. At the beginning of term every teacher takes students list in his or her or zie or per class and establishes how students want to be called.

And I have the same issue as Peterson, having a hard time to remember students names. But if there is no law forcing me do so whole pronouns story doesn't make much difference. I can't remember names of 90% of students (well ok, people), but now in addition to that I won't be able to remember their pronouns. In most cases names I remember are students who perform well in class or ask a lot of questions. If student makes those efforts in class, I will make an effort to remember names, nicknames, pronouns etc. I feel it is feir enough.
