Statement on inaccurate coverage of the Union’s gender inclusive language policy

Contrary to some press reports, the Students’ Union has not banned the words she/her/he/him or any other pronoun. 

The gender inclusive language policy created by students and agreed by Students’ Union Council simply asks people not to make assumptions about people’s gender identity or how they'd like to be addressed. This simple shift aims to make Union activities more accessible.

Students are welcome to use the pronouns they’d like, including she/her/he/him/they/them. These words are frequently used in Union meetings, activities and publications and they can continue to be.
