Princeton University Now Allowing Students To Choose From Six Gender Identities

Princeton University, one of the most prestigious schools in the nation, has begun to allow its students to select from six gender identities.

The new online student service interface, called TigerHub, allows Princeton students to choose from one or more of the following six genders options: “Cisgender,” “Genderqueer/gender non-conform[ing],” “Trans/transgender,” “Man,” “Woman,” and “Other.”

A spokesman from Princeton University told Fox News that “students use TigerHub to provide the University with personal information on a confidential basis. This information includes emergency contacts, their preferred name, and, if they wish to provide it in response to an optional question, the gender with which they identify.”

While students will have the option of selecting to be both female and male, the university is not making a selection on TigerHub a requirement.

“You may select multiple gender identities. Your gender identity is confidential and is not generally available,” the form states.

Princeton is not alone. More than 50 colleges or universities allow students to choose their genders without documentation of medical intervention, the Washington Post said.

Besides being male and female simultaneously, some schools offer students the option of creating their own designated pronouns. One such school is the University of Michigan.

In response to that option — and as a protest against it — one undergraduate chose “His Majesty.” Reportedly, some of His Majesty’s professors now address this student according to the royalty he identifies as.

Academics and activists are divided over the legitimacy of the relatively recent distinction between sex and gender.
