MIT is requiring faculty, staff, and graduate students to complete an online training module called “LGBTQ+ 101,” which covers topics such as “deadnaming,” gender-affirming care, and allyship.

The training emphasizes the use of gender-neutral language and terms, while also prompting trainees to take specific actions to support LGBTQ+ individuals.

The module is part of a broader requirement aimed at preventing sexual harassment, and there are alternative training options available. (Trending: Another Major Company Goes Woke And Goes Broke)

The course is titled “LGBTQ+ 101: Education, Allyship, and Self-Advocacy.”

The training states: “There is a difference between sex and gender.”

“Generally speaking, ‘male’ and ‘female’ are terms to describe sex and ‘woman’ and ‘man’ are terms to describe gender.” The training says “gender is a spectrum.”

The training covers “gender-affirming care” and a “range of social, psychological, behavioral, and medical interventions designed to support and affirm an individual’s gender identity when it conflicts with the gender they were assigned at birth.”

The training continues: “These interventions help transgender people align various aspects of their lives – emotional, interpersonal, and biological – with their gender identity.”

“Non-binary” is defined as a “term for diverse gender identities” that are “outside the gender binary.”

“Provide space regularly in your lab/department/office/classrooms to share their pronouns. Avoid using binary gendered language … instead use ‘they’ and ‘people’ as gender neutral terms,” the training says.

“Are you a visible, dependable ally?” the training asks. “What have you done recently, or what are you planning on doing, that can contribute to a feeling of LGBTQ+ belonging at MIT?”
