They’ve REALLY now put a target on their backs expecting rational people to put up with this latest schtick. Gender dysphoria is a mental illness – like “body integrity dysphoria” or “amputee identity disorder” (or in at least one case, “stare at the sun until I go blind” disorder).
Each and every case requires the amputation of something that was perfectly good and then assuming an identity that they are not. Like actors that strut their stuff on a stage or a movie lot, but this is permanent (or until they come, like some have, to their senses and realized that this wasn’t the brightest thing in the world to have done).
And to show the rest of us how cuckoo this movement has become, get a load of the newest thing they are going to demand of us:
Get ready for rise of ‘neopronouns.’ They can include ‘fantasy characters’ such as ‘vamp/vampself,’ ‘prin/cess/princesself,’ ‘fae/faer/faeself.’
Yeah, I guess I was just ahead of my time when all the “they”‘s and “zir” and all the other unpronounceable and unmemorizable made-up words (for this made-up condition – THEY are the ones with the “social constructs” not we Normals) when I decided that my “pronouns” were going to be “My Excellency/Your Royal Highness“. Hey, who are they to judge ME; they made up these Rules and I’m just following them.
Except, as the title of the post above connotes, they’ve just shoved past the barriers and into the Absurd without a flick of an eyeball (reformatted, emphasis mine):
The Times on Thursday published a nearly 2,000-word article on the topic, revealing for starters that the phenomenon of using “they” and “them” to describe a single person is becoming normal. But that’s old hat. Turns out that neopronouns — created terms like “ze” and “zir” that gloss over gender — are expanding to include “noun-self” pronouns, which can refer to animals or “fantasy characters,” the paper said.
Well, they’ve got that fantasy part down pat…
Therefore, the Times reported, one’s pronouns can be “bun/bunself” and “kitten/kittenself” — or even “vamp/vampself,” “prin/cess/princesself,” “fae/faer/faeself.” The paper also said “common slang” (“Innit/Innits/Innitself”) is fair game, too. “Many neopronoun users are dead serious, and are also part of online communities that are quick to react swiftly to offenses,” the paper explained. “They are deeply versed in the style and mores of contemporary identity politics conversations.”
Yeah, well, I’ve been offended by this stuff too – I refuse to engage with people that demand I play in their made-up games for themselves. I refuse to help the Left’s process of creating their own new version of NewSpeak (a la 1984) that basically is nihilistic and allows anything to be anybody. Maybe I should just use the neopronoun of “pitbull” and “rabid” just to give them a fair warning – I’m getting to the point, I believe, that Normal people have had enough of this nonsense in demanding we call you stuff we know you aren’t. Hey, “zir” this!
A popular Twitch streamer who goes by AndiVMG recently apologized after jokingly tweeting that her pronouns were “bad/af,” which led many neopronoun users to accuse her of transphobic invalidation of their identities.
No, not transphobic invalidation but an affirmation that you’ve certified to the rest of us that you’ve now brought your movement to the Sanity Cliff – and jumped off in glee. I guess that when you live in the First World that is the US, you have too go far to find real problems, and when you aren’t willing to help out with those, you have to make them up for yourself.
Seriously, what level of chutzpah is required to make such demands of others and then pull a nutty when we won’t go along? And it’s our education system, that should be teaching proper English, Reasoning, and Science that’s really shoving this along.
AndiVMG did not respond to a request for comment for this article but wrote on Twitter: “It wasn’t meant to mock people who use neopronouns. However I have since educated myself on the matter and spoken to people who use neopronouns and I see why what I said was hurtful.”
And there’s your first mistake: apologizing to the SJW/Trans/ BLM/<Name your group> mob because when you do, they’ll make you pay forever. NO APOLOGY is ever enough for these bullies. And yes, I mean bullies. And for the record, I am mocking this whole thing because it is absurd. This is now officially “The Emperor has no clothes” territory:
Two swindlers arrive at the capital city of an emperor who spends lavishly on clothing at the expense of state matters. Posing as weavers, they offer to supply him with magnificent clothes that are invisible to those who are stupid or incompetent. The emperor hires them, and they set up looms and go to work. A succession of officials, and then the emperor himself, visit them to check their progress. Each sees that the looms are empty but pretends otherwise to avoid being thought a fool. Finally, the weavers report that the emperor’s suit is finished. They mime dressing him and he sets off in a procession before the whole city. The townsfolk uncomfortably go along with the pretense, not wanting to appear inept or stupid, until a child blurts out that the emperor is wearing nothing at all. The people then realize that everyone has been fooled. Although startled, the emperor continues the procession, walking more proudly than ever.
I refuse to play along. And you other Normals shouldn’t either because this is just another bastardization of our Culture that will, in adverse fashions, change the Politics to be even worse than they are today. We’re in a Culture War a la the Frankfurt School, Dewey, Marcuse, Antonio Gramsci, and the New Left. Either you stand for your principles or you stand for nothing at all (or you will be made to stand for something that you know, inside, is wrong).
There’s plenty more conjugating of the issue within the lengthy Times’ treatise, but what seems more entertaining is how observers are reacting to the story.
Yeah, consider this post a continuation of that reaction – and I hope this is a bit entertaining as well for those of us that believe that Society isn’t going off the rails but, instead, is getting SHOVED off them.
Others expressed similar sentiments:
- “I shall now refer to myself as squi/squirlly/squirrelself,” one commenter wrote.
- “OK this article made my head hurt,” another user said. “I respect pronouns usage. But this just seems like people taking it to far. We are not little kids who are making up names.”
- “Another sign America is circling the bowl like a violent bowel movement,” another commenter opined.
- “What about inanimate object pronouns like ‘Apache attack helicopter’ or apatcopter?” another user quipped. “Discrimination at its finest if they don’t [accept] my identity as apatcopter.”
- “At what point are ya’ll sick of sharing a country with folks pushing this kind of stuff?” another commenter wondered. “Their fantasyland lifestyles are slowly dragging our country towards economic ruin. Let them live however they want, in a country they want. Break off half the US & let’s get back to truth.”
Indeed – Remember Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals #5, Ridicule, is one of your most important tools in pushing back this wacko insanity. It needs to be used. Oh, to be sure, the Other Side will call you by all kinds of names that are meant to be hurtful – ignore them. Point at them. Laugh at them. Recognize them for what they aren’t – serious people.
You see, they’ve brought this onto themselves. They only win this Culture battle if you give in to these people who are acting like 5-year-olds having a tantrum. Deal with them appropriately.
Yeah, ask them if what they are doing is “adulting” – heads exploding when you tell them that sane and reasonable adults don’t force coerced speech onto others.
