The Class of 2011 announced that Jessee Vasold ’11 will be the College of William and Mary’s first genderqueer homecoming queen. To this, we know exactly what we want to say, but how to say it? We would like to give “zir” — a gender-neutral alternative to him or her — our most earnest congratulations, and the same is due to the open-minded student body that elected Vasold. It’s nice to have a surprise this homecoming that is at once heart-warming and phonologically fun.
