"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

the article doesn’t do the issue justice.
the issue regarded policy change, where the vancouver school board’s (VSB) LGBTQ+ advisory committee re-wrote existing policy to protect staff and students falling on the queer and trans spectrums. 
the policy revision includes
-they/them/their and non-traditional pronouns being recognized by the school system
-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students
-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
—————-
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings. 
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.

One time in my AP Psychology class in high school we were talking about the senses and how taste is a mixture of taste buds and smell and we demonstrated this by holding our nose and guessing what flavor jellybean we had in our mouth because when you unplug your nose…

One time a teacher made fun of my nose and I think that’s what made me decide I was ugly
Cuz children will be children, they’re awful and mean sometimes but when your 7th grade English teacher makes fun of something you’re already insecure about, then it must be true.

an important factual presentation by me

All the facts.

Not ALL the facts.  If we were doing ALL the facts, you wouldn’t have used a GREEK WOMAN as an example.

Cleopatra was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, a family of Greek origin that ruled Egypt after Alexander the Great's death during the Hellenistic period

This is a bust of Cleopatra:

Kleopatra-VII.-Altes-Museum-Berlin1.jpg

That is a very Greek face.  I have seen a lot of Greek sculpture and that is very much the sort of faces I saw on most of those sculptures.

Now, if we want a female ruler of Egypt who was actually Egyptian, why don’t we go with Nefertiti?

Heck yeah, Nefertiti.  

Or let’s grab these statues at the Temple of Ramses

Here are some actual black ancient Egyptians, y0.

The point is good and valid and should not be forgotten, but HOW ABOUT we not use a Greek lady to illustrate anything about the ancient EGYPTIANS, since she is not genetically Egyptian.
