Can anyone explain...

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.

It's PC retardation in full effect. Like how I used a PC and a completely non-PC word in the same sentence

Yes, mainly millenials, they are so to the left and "progressive" that EVERYTHING is offensive to them
I find it better to ignore their childish tantrums and talk like a normal person

S'ok I've got this covered,

Gender placards. They would hang from safety pins and contain all the relevant information

eg. Hi, pleased to meet you, i'm Jon, you can refer to me as he, him, his, himself, they (singular), them (singular), their (singular), theirs (singular), themself (singular), alternatively, please feel free to call me what the fuck you like, so...what pronoun do you use?

..of course everyone will have to wear one to avoid anyone being offended by being singled out. The Gender placard should also have braille translation be in a large font, have a big red button that when hit will speak the message (in 165 languages, of course). A small hand crank to the side will allow the the Gender placard to tilt up and down to improve the viewing angle for very short people (midgets) or if the wearer is so incredibly fat their (singular) Gender placard is also being used as a donut table.

Optional extras include:

Programmable LED back-light with various flashing coloured displays so you can advertise what 'your into' as well.

NFC technology, if your to shy to talk to people it will collect and store all the peoples details you encounter through the day so you (singular) can 'virtually' meet them later via Facebook ©.

Loudspeaker, so if you catch anyone not wearing their (singular) Gender placard it will warn others (in a gender neutral voice) *RACIST MISOGYNISTIC BIGOT DETECTED, RACIST MISOGYNISTIC BIGOT DETECTED* *disclosure, see below.

*disclosure
The Noise Regulations require you to take specific action at certain action values. These relate to:

the levels of exposure to noise of your employees averaged over a working day or week; and
the maximum noise (peak sound pressure) to which employees are exposed in a working day.
The values are:

lower exposure action values:

daily or weekly exposure of 80 dB;
peak sound pressure of 135 dB;

upper exposure action values:

daily or weekly exposure of 85 dB;
peak sound pressure of 137 dB.

Why not just call it you, yeah you, or that, or IT, or whatever you are. Or just ignore that or it, or whatever they are. These kids are just trying to fit in by trying to fit out, not realizing that trying to be so different is making them all the same.

PS I can totally understand why this would be triggering, I'm triggered right now as well and I don't even have coffee in my system.

Nah, seriously, I went to my daughter's college campus to bring her home for the holiday's and I can tell you there are a lot of confused kids attending colleges right now. I saw a guy (or that human) dressed as either Tony the Tiger (they're great) or Tigger (T-I-double-Gah-er), I saw a person that could only be described as Pat from either Mad TV or SNL can't remember which, it's a girl, no it's a boy, no it's a baby It's Pat. Then a I saw a bunch of normal kids, thank goodness!

calling bullshit here. It's not mainly millennials or the left there are an entire group of people from all sides of the political and socialeconomic range that apparently have a moral obligation to be offended. Being offended is a way of life for these people. Sure they all get offended over different things and think the other groups offense is stupid, but the one thing they have in common is that they all go about their daily lives looking for things that offends them.

I can see it - sitting there surfing facebook or twitter gleefully wondering what is going to offend them today

If you're offended, then you're a victim
If you can claim victim status you just won the lottery

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

If they can make you use made up words it tends to move toward believing the delusion internally, that there are many "genders". I have gay and lesbian friends, that's not an issue for me. However, they at least believe they're men or women who are attracted to the same sex. Fine and dandy. They don't even for a second think they're some other gender, besides male or female. They also don't believe that they are trapped in the wrong body. In my opinion, if you have those kinds of thoughts, you have issues and should seek help. How is that any different from any regular guy believing he's Jesus, just in his regular body? It isn't, but if I can get everyone to call me Jesus, now we're getting somewhere.

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.

I would disagree with you about the "offended white people" and I find it amazingly interesting that only liberals bring race up. It truly is stunning to me. The policies are failed ones. That's why the left has lost so many governorships, statehouses and congressional seats. I don't know how many times people have to say it, but seemingly there is a segment of the population that can't bring themselves to understand that there are those who just don't agree with progressive policies. If Obama was a white guy from the Carolinas and wanted to pass Obamacare, I would have the same loathing for him. Oh wait I did for Romney when he passed Romenycare and it's a shit piece of legislation as well. I hated Ted Kennedy's policies, Barney Frank's, Harry Reid's. I don't have a problem if the left doesn't want conservative thought, that doesn't make you a race hater, or a "X"phobe

The reality is the progressives won't look at what happened in the election and see where they failed (crappy candidate, public opinion prolly isn't what the "polls" say and the media just did a circle jerk for 8 years trying to influence the people and convincing themselves)

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.

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

Quote:
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.
