    Really? What the fuck kinds of words are "ze," "zie," and "hir?"

    I expect my five year old to make up silly nonsensical words. Actually even he doesn't do that. Maybe my three year old.

    People ought to think long and hard about sending their kids and their money to these places that are obviously being run by imbeciles.

    As far as I'm concerned they can go fuck "emselves" and their childish gibberish.

    Princeton didn't make those up.

    Those are pronouns used by the LGBT community to represent the different gender types due to being transgendered, gender queer and gender variant.signature block:

    Preferred pronouns: he/his/him

    I still retain the hope that at some point, this country will get back to worrying about things that are important, not

    As I said in another thread, I got an email from a government agency this week in which the sender had this in his email whether the guy who likes to dress up as a pumpkin gets his feelings hurt when someone uses "he" instead of "zie" in his presence.

    Whatever. You're either a "he" or a "she" whether you like it or not.

    If you're a deranged individual who thinks you're a woman even though you have a penis and an X and Y chromosome, then dress up like a girl and call people will call you she/her. Quit making stuff up and expecting the rest of us to alter our language because you "think' your something you're not.

    And yes, I agree with you that it would be nice if the powers that be worried about things that are important, like 18 trillion in debt...

    Not going to happen, we need to make sure that everyone goes through every minute of their life with a zero percent of ever being offended by anything.

    We saw all kinds of silly PC stuff when we dropped my daughter off at college last September. For example, there was a poster that said, "We don't say 'man up' because one gender isn't stronger than the other." At least the poster acknowledged that there are two different genders. A few minutes later when we were on the elevator, these supposedly enlightened college students were dropping f bombs like there was no tomorrow.

    Using the F word is very pc now.

    Said this before.

    Have a person with gender issues drink a 6 pack of beer and lock them in a room for an hour. . Take them outside. There is a tree and then there is some tall grass. If they piss on the tree, they are a guy. If they squat to piss in the tall grass then they are a she.

    Case solved

    I think there's a thread somewhere about colleges running off the rails, and this is part of it. Linguistically, you can't do this from the top down. We add new words to the general lexicon every year, but that is due to usage, not people telling us what words to use. People just started using Google as a verb and its usage is what made it mainstream. Gender-neutral pronouns will only be widely used if it happens that way.

    That said, I am starting to become more and more convinced that those offended keep changing what words you're supposed to use so they always have a reason to feel slighted or offended. No more Afro-American, African-American is out of favor. Black is the preferred term. For now. Just the other day I saw a PhD get upset on Facebook over a Trump campaign guy who says he doesn't see color. "Oh, wonderful, the White man gets to erase me and everything about my culture because my color doesn't exist." You fucking know what he was saying. He was saying he doesn't judge people by color. BUT--you have to keep being offended by something. This also occurs in the LGBTQ+ community.

    Speaking of, Reason posted a posted a story the other day about how Autostraddle, a news site aimed at LGBTQ women, retracted its review of Seith Rogan's Sausage Party. Oh, in order to read this, you must know that the word "latinx" (pronounced la-teen-ex) is a gender-neutral pronoun to replace latino/latina. Anyway, from the apology:

    After we published the review, we heard from Latinx readers who believe the portrayal of Salma Hayek's taco was racist and that it reinforced harmful stereotypes. We heard from readers who were upset that we labeled the taco a lesbian when it seems more likely that she was bisexual. We heard from readers who questioned the consent of the sexual encounter between the taco and the hot dog bun. We heard from readers who found the taco to be a damaging portrayal of a predatory queer woman.

    Sigh. It's a cartoon!! A cartoon where the review only suggested it was worth celebrating a same-sex attraction in the film. First, you shouldn't remove an entire review because people disagree, but they came to the wholly wrong conclusion, that reviews of how particular groups are portrayed in art should only be criticized by members of that group. For Christ's sake, it's a talking taco!
