Here at ClashDaily we want to make sure that you are getting factual information.
Before originally posting this article, we checked for other sources to ensure the accuracy of the claim.
We found these stories from the following websites:
It has come to the attention of one of our Editors that the Oxford Student Union has put out a statement in response to these articles:
On the weekend of December 11th, several articles were published stating that Oxford University Students’ Union had produced a leaflet which told students “to use gender neutral pronouns such as ‘ze’ rather than ‘he’ or ‘she’”.
As far as we’re aware, the information which has been published is incorrect. We have not produced a leaflet implying that all students must use ‘ze’ pronouns to refer to others, or indeed to themselves.

Also, here is an excerpt from an article in The Guardian:
The claims about gender-neutral pronouns first appeared in the Sunday Times but subsequently featured in other outlets including the Daily Mail, Huffington Post, the Times of India and Russia Today.
Oxford University’s newspaper, Cherwell, reported that the Sunday Times said the main source for the article was an OUSU policy document published in June 2016, which contains no mention of the word “ze”. It states that speakers in OUSU meetings should identify their preferred pronoun and their name.
That being said, the push for gender-neutral pronouns on college campuses all over the world, and as such we have decided to not remove the post entirely, but rather update the story to be as accurate as possible.
So, language needs to be changed in order to not ‘trigger’ someone?
‘He’ and ‘She’ are now discriminatory terms says OXFORD University.
That’s it, England. We’re taking away your credentials:
Students at Oxford University have been told to use the pronoun “ze” rather than “he” or “she” to eliminate discrimination against transgender people.
Guidance offered in a leaflet by the students’ union advises against using traditional pronouns, arguing that doing so suggests there are only two genders. Deliberately using the wrong pronoun for a transgendered person is an offence under the union’s code of conduct.
Peter Tatchell, an LGBT rights campaigner, has welcomed the move, telling Mail Online: “It is a positive thing to not always emphasise gender divisions and barriers.”
He said: “It is good to have gender-neutral pronouns for those who want them but it shouldn’t be compulsory.
“This issue isn’t about being politically correct or censoring anyone. It’s about acknowledging the fact of changing gender identities and respecting people’s right to not define themselves as male or female.
“Giving people the ‘ze’ option is a thoughtful, considerate move.”…
Is it wrong to point out that changing the existing gender pronouns is actually bringing more attention to gender?
This is counter-productive and frankly, just plain stupid.
A Canadian(!) professor is taking a stand.
Shocking, but true.
…But Canadian professor Jordan Peterson, who has made a stand against gender politics on his campus, warned: “UK universities should resist this. Whole disciplines have become irretrievable from these doctrines.”
Peterson made waves when he released a presentation on the internet kicking back against the Canadian government’s plans to implement legislation amending the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code to prohibit harassment and discrimination based on “gender identity and gender expression”.
At a free speech rally in October, the University of Toronto professor said: “The changes of the law scare me because they put into the legal substructure of the culture certain assumptions about basic human nature that, not only I believe to be untrue, but they’re also dangerous and ideologically motivated.”

You really should take the time to listen to Peterson’s presentation on language, it is incredibly well-thought out and argued:
UK universities, if you need to change the language because of political correctness, you have officially been wussified.
Get yourself a couple of these, and maybe a coloring book for the kids:
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles addresses our nation’s abysmal wussification in his NEW book …
The Effeminization Of The American Male
by Doug Giles
Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog, ClashDaily.com, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity.
That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.
In The Effeminization Of The American Male, Giles takes ‘Crispin’ from the unaccomplished, prissy and dank corridors of ‘Wussville’ up the steep, treacherous and unforgiving trail that leads to ‘Mantown.’
“Secretly, everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p*ssy generation.” – Clint Eastwood
This is definitely one of the most politically incorrect books to ever hit the market.
It will most certainly offend the entitled whiners, but it will also be a breath of fresh air to young males who wish to be men versus hipster dandies.
