The UK's 'University and College Union' (UCU) has recently spoken (in tongues, I expect).
They want everyone to be able to 'self-identify' as whatever colour, gender, or with whatever sexual orientation, or even disability, they wish.
You're getting excited; I can see!
So, if you were born a black, female, 4 ft, one armed, lesbian, you could now be a tall white hetrosexual male, who is able bodied. Hooray for that!
One advantage of this otherwise seemingly bizarre idea, is that Companies, or their Boards of Directors, who are accused of being too white, Christian, and male oriented, can now instruct half their employees to become female, white, Muslims..... Problem sorted.
As for me, I've reluctantly decided to continue as a tall, white, male, but (please) with the added good looks of a young Adonis. However, I'm told the Adonis bit is a bit far fetched, even for the UCU.
N.B. Just in case you were wondering, in the photo above, those are two black males holding the banner, accompanied by a Wheelchair bound Asian female coffee drinker.
Aren't students wonderful.
