I've never eaten dolphin, but I've flogged mine many times.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Just to note that Merriam-Webster has amended its definition of they to reflect the fact that it is recognised as a proper usage when referring to persons of non-binary gender. As a senior editor for Merriam-Webster commented: 'It’s very clear that this is fully established in the language at this point.' O, the horror!

Shakespeare already used singular they. I wasn't aware he was a social justice warrior.

What be this dreck? Dudes don't do nothin' for me; babes either. All they grinnin' don't change nothin'.


Regarding the bullshit title of this thread, I did a search using a couple of different search engines and was unable to find a single example of a righteous crusader against political correctness testing the NYC guideline on respecting preferred pronouns. It's been years, and apparently the language policing leftist thugs have yet to claim their first victim.

If a person wishes to use a gender neutral pronoun they should be allowed to do so.

Saying that boys are best isn't sexist, it's just true.

Has anyone found out how many people New York City has fined (and how many dollars it got) for ignoring pronoun orders since Coito Two started this thread three years and four months ago?
