    You’ve been brain washed, stop reading the brain rotting nonsense you’ve been reading and start worrying about things that actually matter.

    Imagine if you focussed this anger onto some actual injustice and not how some other human being would like to be referred.

    Which I of course would do.

    The offense to me as I have said, is that it is part of the wIder intersectionality prism that is being driven by “a certain type of demographic” that is pushing for change at a pace beyond what a large amount of people are comfortable with.

    I’m glad you are here to enlighten with such credentials.
    For a starter...I’d be interested to know how to pronounce “Womxn” correctly as I’d hate to cause offense.
    Bloody hell

    Re: Gender Pronouns

    You wouldn't refer to someone with mental health issues as mental. You don't refer to someone with a learning difficulty as retarded. We move on. We live and learn. Do I understand gender fluidity? Absolutely not. But then why would I? I've never experienced anything like that. If that's how someone feels and they'd prefer to be addressed as such, I have no problem with it.

    I know a bloke that used to be called Bobby and then transitioned to female. More of a friend of a friend. We have to refer to her as Jennifer now. It's weird, and I slip up sometimes but I try to go along with it.

    Re: Gender Pronouns

    I have heard people in discussions getting upset when a speakers says "you don't do that" and they take it personally.
    The way to avoid it is to use the gender neutral "One" As in 'One doesn't so that', but if you use it in normal speech people think you are trying to be 'posh'.
    In German they use the word "Mann" as gender neutral.

    The people doing that are obviously c**ts. Have you been on twitter? It's full of them.

    Left, centre, right... Whatever the person's politics or identity, Twitter is a cesspool of c*ntishness.

The word was first proposed in 1966, and again in 1994, with reference to the Finnish hän, a personal pronoun that is gender-neutral, since Finnish does not have grammatical genders
    Good idea. Much less clumsy than ‘they’ as a gender neutral alternative to he or she. ‘They’ sounds plural - and although that is a small annoyance to me, it is still there and I wish there was a better option in English.

    The word 'Mann' is not gender neutral. It's masculine and means 'man'.
    'Man' however, translates our our 'one' that you refer to.
    Isn't that the second time that you given out duff gen about the German language?

    she posted it AFTER being harassed and Bullied for months

    After months of harassing me in every way. I decided to put 3 VERY controversial words in my bio.. beep/bop/boop.”
    Once again she mentions EVERYDAY for MONTHS

    I don’t think trans people would like all of you trying to force a woman to put something in her bio through harassment & name calling EVERYDAY for MONTHS. Such as “Racist” Transphobe” “Bitch” “Weirdo” “ I hope you die” “I hope you lose your career” “your fat, you’re ugly”.
    so it does somewhat prove the point

    I tend to agree with WDB sorry.

    I believe that these topics are so divisive they’ve split demographics. I think that they are so polarising anyone that was moderate has hardened stances. What reason, be it brexit, gender or people expressing opinions more on social media etc has yet to be determined but I do find people’s options becoming hardened be that both left or right.

    Totally agree. Easily drawn in to have an opinion on everything with no benefit. Must admit falling foul of this myself

    Re: Gender Pronouns

    I think it comes down to (and works for all topics)

    Does this affect you?
    Does this affect you personally?

    If either answer is no, then shut the **** up

    Yeah I read the article, I don't believe her in the slightest.

    You can write in caps all you want mate, you don't have a clue.

    https://twitter.com/search?lang=en&q...rc=typed_query

    https://twitter.com/search?q=(%22die...rc=typed_query

    (second link is in response to claims about people wanting her to "die")

    EVERY DAY FOR MONTHS

    She started getting tweets THIS MONTH after supposedly liking a tweet which claimed people who use pronouns are weirdos, she then doubled down by claiming she's being bullied (read the tweets and make your own mind up, I don't see much bullying going on) and proceeded to mock pronouns entirely with the beep thing. Don't be a ****, if someone wants you to call them she/they/him etc then do it

    she's a professional victim

    Sigh.

    You really are a sanctimonious, condescending ****er.

    Dismiss concerns, wonder why populism is on the increase then blame it on bigotry.
    Rinse and repeat election season upon election season.

    Trump will win In November because of the left.

    Why is calling someone their preferred pronoun a left or a right issue though? It shows how weak, thick and easily led people can be.

    People were saying exactly the same things when gay people were getting more rights. Some people are just anti everything.

    I just don’t understand why this is such a big issue to some. I can’t even imagine that many people have been affected by it. They just read something about it, get riled up for no reason and are then stubbornly set in their ways and afraid to change their opinion.

    If this sort of thing drives people “left” or “right” for some reason they were already well on their way there anyway.

    Where has anyone mentioned bigotry?

    Whatever brainwashing media you’re consuming is pushing your brain straight there as soon as anyone disagrees with you.

    Your concerns haven’t been dismissed they’ve been questioned and you haven’t managed to put across a counter argument.

    Vote for trump and get pushed right because someone has asked to you to call them a different name mate, it just shows how weak you are.

    the only bigots are on the insane left who now believe in any nonsense that dishonest people dream up changing speech and book burning is pure facist Marxism.

    She has a problem with bullies hi-jacking worthwhile causes and retaliates by taking the piss out of the very people she's supposedly concerned about?

    I think she's being a little disingenuous there. Why didn't she just out the abusive people?
