I don't even know where to start on this one...

Smith College students earlier this month made a decision some might find mystifying: Although Smith is a women's college, the students voted to change the language of their student constitution so that the pronouns "she" and "her" would be replaced with gender-neutral terms.

But wait, there's more:

Dean of the College Maureen Mahoney said there is no policy in place at Smith that prevents students from undergoing sex-reassignment surgery while students are at the college. But she admits that the matter raises complex issues that the college has yet to fully deal with.
"There is no mechanism, nor would we want to go around monitoring anyone," said Mahoney. "It's a complicated situation and we're responding to it and learning at the same time."

Well thank goodness they're not regularly confirming the students' physical genders. As long as they pass the savings on, right?

The article goes on to say that eliminating female pronouns is a way to encourage students to join student government. Why not just print fliers that say, "We're completely insane. Join us!"
