Harvard hires its first "it."

Harvard Picks First BGLTQ Director
Harvard has appointed Vanidy “Van” Bailey as the College’s first permanent director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. Bailey, the assistant director for education at the University of California, San Diego, will assume the new position on July 16.
“Assume the position?” Is that a deliberate double entendre? The Harvard Crimson assumes the politically correct position by adding a correction:
An earlier version of this article used the pronoun "she" to refer to Vanidy "Van" Bailey, the newly appointed director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. In fact, Bailey prefers not to be referred to by any gendered pronoun.
Mark Steyn comments:
I’ll bet Elizabeth Warren is kicking herself for not thinking of that one. So America is now the first nation in history in which people take on six figures of debt for the privilege of entrusting their education to persons with no pronouns. That seems likely to work.
You can't make this stuff up!

Welcome visitors, Please look around

UPDATE: Notice of "it's" appointment.  Note who's making it.
Harvard College Dean Evelynn M. Hammonds, Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz Professor of the History of Science and of African and African American Studies, announced today the appointment of Vanidy M. Bailey as director of Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Queer (BGLTQ) student life. Bailey will begin working in the new position on July 16.
