Kansas City LGBT Conversation Hopes To Devise Gender Neutral Language

We'll talk about this more if some of our more strident readers can articulate comments that aren't straight up hate speech or threats. HOWEVER, here's the premise . . .

"Pronouns, like gender-neutral bathrooms, are sparking a national debate, prompting new policies in schools and workplaces about which ones to use. "

What's Your Pronoun? Beyond He & She

Tue, February 11, 2020 - Merriam-Webster has thrown its considerable weight behind the use of "they" as a singular, gender-neutral pronoun, expanding its dictionary definition and then proclaiming "they" the 2019 Word of the Year. Traditionalists and other critics argue: miscarriage of meaning!

O.K. Then I'll call men dickhead or hangman. How about we can call Sharice Davids dildo and her mother either split tail or peanut butter leg. These people are hysterical and they think we are the stupid ones???? Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. Oh and lets not forget Patrick Mahomes and his girlfriend, they would be burr head and freezer flake.

Completely unnecessary Orwellian manipulation of language.

“Sparking a national debate”?
It’s not a debate when one side is desperately trying to normalize idiocy and the other side is laughing at you

I find all of the action that I need, right here.
My pronoun is "Him-cocksucker".

Used to be, homosexuals were rightfully embarrassed by their malady and tried to hide it.

^^Bitch, you've lived your whole pathetic life being told what to do and say, only you're too dumb to figure that out for yourself. By all means go back to Faux News so you can refresh your talking points for the day.

Once again Tony deserves thanks from all of us for keeping these dolts at home in their rusted out trailers and giving them something to do away from civilized society.

So much butthurt over an ancient tradition. Go to theocratic Iran they have soft butt pillows.

"The search for a gender-neutral pronoun actually goes back centuries. Shakespeare used the singular “they,”"

But, 2:06, why change what works, and why now, as an unnecessary accommodation?

And, strawman failure. People should love openly who they wish. Altering language as therapy is not helpful.

You can't handle any disagreement with the values you've been told to have! So brittle.

My preferred pronoun is : "degenerate incel neckbeard basement boy"

1:59: Ummmm. Did you mean "hanged?"

Sorry, that's a number of adjectives and nouns strung together incorrectly. Try again.

Anonymous said...

And yet it isn't. There are four adjectives modifying one noun. Weird, but not incorrect.

Anonymous said...

Not really, unless 'incel' and 'neckbeard' are loosely interpreted to be adjectives without any modification to their structure to indicate this change as is usually the case. Unless the insult is so free-form that parts of speech per se have just been abandoned.

Which is what happened. Anyway, beside the point because there's not a pronoun in the bunch.

Try again.

Okay, how about if you don't like being called what you are, like Man or Woman, we just call you it, or idiot, or just dumbass for not even trying to understand biology.
