Michigan: "There Is An Infinite Number Of Pronouns"

  Yes, but...a denumerable infinity or a non-denumerable infinity?
   Hint: if you say the former then you are an oppressor, jack.

Well, there's non-denumerable infinity of possible finite spoken pronouns. The web form, by presenting students with the ability to designate only finite written pronouns, deprives them of an infinity of choices that better correspond to their preferences...

I see from the link to the "His Majesty" prankster that the web form actually links to the registration system and prints the pronouns on the class roster. The professor is required to use what's on the roster. How good do you figure the authentication is on this web form? Is it unfair to assume that it's poor? How long until the kids and the outside trolls start registering each other's pronouns as "Shithead", and much worse? Will the fact that it was on the roll be a defense for the TA/Adjunct who calls a student shithead?

Only those hopelessly blinded by white cisheteropatriarchal privilege deny that it's a large cardinal.
