... the arguments in favor of transgender pronouns defined here as the incorrect application of he and she as well as absurd neologisms like ze and zir are, in the end, shortsighted. Though compelling on their own limited terms, they fail to take into account that further capitulation where language is concerned can only give aid and comfort to a movement whose success is inevitably attended by the sexualization of children, the sanctioning of brutality, and the dramatic curtailment of freedom of speech and thought.
About the scale of their ambitions, transgender activists have not been shy. Nuance around gender identity and expression will, the journalist Liam Lowery wrote in Newsweek four years ago, improve the quality of life for all people. If gender identity is no longer a fixed commodity, Laurie Penny averred in New Statesman America in 2014, that affects everybody. To the surprise of exactly no one who has followed the progress of transgender ideology in this country and elsewhere, the concept of everybody is increasingly understood on the left to include even young children. Abetted by the American Academy of Pediatrics declaration that most children have a stable sense of their gender identity by their fourth birthday, transgender activists in the United States have set about removing any age-based obstacles to that identitys expression an effort that peaked with Californias 2018 law providing transgender treatments to minors as young as twelve without requiring parental consent.
Abroad, developments are even worse, ranging in severity from the despicable to the truly nightmarish. As Wesley J. Smith recently reported for NRO, a Canadian 14-year-old was allowed, earlier this year, to proceed with gender-altering hormone treatments despite her fathers strenuous objections. In Australia, meanwhile, multiple news reports declare that, [in] 2016, a [4yo] the process of transitioning.

In all threads with the keyword "transgender", I add "genitalmutilation". We should not go along with the Left's lies.
The RADICAL Rats need to get a life and do something useful for America. Oh, that is what conservatives do....
nd its Bruce Jenner and Bradley Manning
I don’t even refer to a guy I know who is “married” to another guy by his new last name
The use of transgender pronouns, “phobia” in any mutation, and “diversity” proves the speaker/writer really shouldn’t be doing anything other than digging ditches. (No insult meant to ditch digger who perform services of far more value to all than the users of the above words.)
Yes. We need to make a point of being in your face about it too. Society shouldn’t be restructured again around the insane just as it shouldn’t have been changed to accommodate the perverted.
For real, I’ll bet these trannies that pretend they are woman will use the bathroom with a urinal if they know nobody is around to notice which bathroom they are using.
‘It’ sounds about right.
If you are not a “he” or a “she”, then you are an “it” or a “thing”.
And I will call you that.
There is another term often suggested for this group:
Instead of describing an individual as either
‘he or she’, use ‘THEY’.
I.E. “HE got HIS jacket from the closet.”
Becomes: “THEY got THEIR jacket from the closet.”
That, to me, sounds very artificial and pretentious.
Not to mention, confusing and inaccurate. “They” means a plural subject most the time to most people.
I offer the pronouns of “he”, “she” or “it”.
Pick one and remember that your mental illness / denial of reality and/or depravity does NOT give you the right to restrict my freedom of speech.
I extend the ban to the use of words like “homophobic” and “Islamophobic” and “transphobic.” These are all made-up propaganda words intended to marginalize and silence critics. Meanwhile, the word “Christophobic” does not exist in the leftist lexicon, and some spell-check services consider it a non-word or a misspelling.
Good luck. It must be painful for kids to every day have to split their brain from home thinking to their school house thinking.
One of these destinations has them for their 8 waking hours.
Just the math confirms where the advantage lay, for the eventual outcome.
“I.E. HE got HIS jacket from the closet.
Becomes: THEY got THEIR jacket from the closet.
We’d all be better off if they’d just stayed in the damn closet.
Found a seat up in the ladies’ room in a Hardees, Monday.
This happens a couple times a month.
Makes my skin crawl.
If you’re a “woman”, shouldn’t you at least put the seat down when you’re done shaking your snake?
How do they handle gender in Latin languages where they have gender on all nouns? What about German? They have three genders!
The pronoun “it” works perfectly fine in thse cases.
