Title IX is being terribly abused

When three eighth-grade boys in Wisconsin referred to a girl as “her’ instead of ”them” as she preferred, they were accused of sexual harassment under Title IX (“The Pronoun Police Come for Middle Schoolers,” The Wall Street Journal, May 23).  I think the charge will be dismissed, but it’s worthwhile taking a closer look.

The issue is whether calling another person by a pronoun that the person finds offensive rises to the level of harassment. The entire matter illustrates just how far any statute can be tortured to advance an agenda. I don’t understand why school officials decided to punish the boys over such an absurd thing.
