App State requests gender-inclusivity disclaimer on papers

Appalachian State is advising students to add disclaimers to academic papers indicating that they are using gender-neutral pronouns “to be inclusive.”

If students choose to use “they” in place of “he or she” on an assignment, they are encouraged to add a disclaimer at the top stating that “This paper uses ‘they’ as a singular third-person pronoun to be inclusive of all genders.”
