Pennsylvania students want classmate banned from campus for opposing pronoun policy
A group of students at Point Park University in Pittsburgh have started a petition to have their classmate banned from campus after criticizing the school’s pronoun policy.
Point Park University campus reform correspondent and student Logan Dubil received a petition from his classmates to school administrators that demanded his removal from campus for criticizing the “politics of the university regarding gender abuse, pronoun abuse and unnamed names, ”which Fox News previously reported.
The petition, which has now been deleted and was created by “Max,” appeared on Change.org and claimed that “Dubil and others like him are the scum of the Earth,” according to Campus Reform.

“We must remove Logan Dubil from campus and others like him who refuse to respect other people’s pronouns,” the petition says. The petition referred to a university policy that requires students to address classmates by their preferred pronouns.
“When I saw the petition to remove me from campus, my stomach collapsed,” Dubil told Fox News. “I was like, ‘Is there really a student at Point Park University who wants me to get fired because of a different opinion?’ Then I started refreshing the petition every two minutes. With each refresh, ten to twenty new signatures came in. “
Dubil was the first to bring the policy to light after the university warned students that “action could be taken” against students who do not comply with the policy. Dubil also said the school’s policies “go against the belief systems of many students, especially conservative students.”

Dubil wrote a letter to administrators, by saying “enough is enough”. In the letter, Dubil requested a statement from the school and assurance that the “First Amendment is being followed on campus.”
Fox News has contacted the University of Point Park but has not received a response.
