Who knows? In a thousand years, even I may be worth something.

Why do third person pronouns matter?

Seriously. Talking about gender fluid, they/them ze/zey kinda stuff. Rubbing elbows with a new crowd that would make bytehead look like Archie Bunker and I just have to wonder if people are seriously morally invested in being offended.

So, when using third party pronouns you are not talking to the person, right? So how can they be offended if you use the wrong one? They aren't there to hear it. And to make matters more mind blowingly innane... you have to guess the right pronoun based on setting and their level of being out.

But apparently as a cis-norm white male I just don't get it despite being bi and wiccan... because I never have to explain that.

Let's take a look at why. Is it because the state's legislation have established that the will of the people is reflected by the laws? No the left does an end around and appeals to courts to establish policies they can't convince the people to agree on the issue. And then LAWS are put in place by a judicial branch imposing these ideals on people who don't want it in their communities.

If those things you listed are part of the collective will of a state, then have at it. For example, I wil never live in CA for those exact reasons. I don't agree with those policies, they are the law of that land, they are free to have it, but I won't live there. The left is in LOVE with the supremacy clause, until it's used to make them defer to laws like immigration, removing sanctuary cities etc. So amazingly the left now is in love with the constitution (even though the 2nd amendment is being challenged and there are many motions to change/remove it) the electoral college is now being challenged because....wait for it....the dems don't like it when they lose or are restricted (just like when the senate changed the rules to go from 60 votes to majority) and they will love all those policies, until they lose power and and tables are truned against them.

Sorry but last I checked the only ones screaming *ist nonsense were on the left, encouraged by the heads, it's so bad that there's no space for the tired "killing of Christmas" nonsense we normally hear this time of the year, that's right, White Christians are not allowed to be "offended" anymore

I have not met one non-progressive who is offended by this crap. The response I see is payback for those who have been told they are bigots/homophobes/racists for the last 8 years, and they are sick of it and they are showing the absurdity by employing absurdity.

did you miss this election? it was all about offended white people. Yes genderbased language is primarily a progressive issue, but the opposite corollary is also true in that non progressives view this as a stupid thing to be offended by and get but hurt if they have to bend any to show any respect to that which is other. to the point that debate is impossible, because the left is "offended by everything and issuing nothing but childish tantrums that have no merit" - paraphrasing. Of course the right gets buthurt over all sorts of things too. abortion, gay marriage, protection of religion (but only theirs), the notion that corporations need to be held responsible for fucking up the environment and the people, climate change, the notion that regulations protect the people, ect.

I have seen more offended white christians in the past 8 years than ever before, because heaven forbid they have to treat people that aren't white or male as actual people, or respect their rights, or you know actually care about the american people.

btw your assertion about the election seems to be countered by facts.

Trump won white voters by a margin almost identical to that of Mitt Romney, who lost the popular vote to Barack Obama in 2012. (Trump appears likely to lose the popular vote, which would make him only the fifth elected president to do so and still win office.) White non-Hispanic voters preferred Trump over Clinton by 21 percentage points (58% to 37%), according to the exit poll conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool. Romney won whites by 20 percentage points in 2012 (59% to 39%).

However, although Trump fared little better among blacks and Hispanics than Romney did four years ago, Hillary Clinton did not run as strongly among these core Democratic groups as Obama did in 2012. Clinton held an 80-point advantage among blacks (88% to 8%) compared with Obama’s 87-point edge four years ago (93% to 6%). In 2008, Obama had a 91-point advantage among blacks.
