7. Total silliness. Fortunately, the English language has perfectly acceptable

alternative ways of expressing the same thing: “We want each student to feel free to speak up."
“We want all students to feel as though they can speak up." Problem solved and no one offended.
Alas, I'm afraid there's no future for the apostrophe. If people can't tell the difference between its and it's, all hope is lost.
