    if you get upset because someone mis genders you, then you're a knob. there are many problems in the world, being called he/she instead of they isn't one of them
    More evidence of the "you should put up with whatever someone says to you and if you don't like it, it's your fault for not liking it" brigade.

    Why does it offend you so much? Surely being civil to what is a very small minority of society to vastly improve how they feel while having no real adverse affect on your life is a good thing.
    As you said, its a very small minority of the population and it costs nothing to address somebody by their requested pronoun.
    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.

    Im glad you are here to enlighten with such credentials.
    For a starter...Id be interested to know how to pronounce Womxn correctly as Id hate to cause offense.

    I do genuinely believe that the explosion over the last few years of SJWs and apparent left narratives in the media has pushed centrist people to the right.

    I used to be a bleeding-heart heart liberal but the pronoun debate is urging me to invade Poland.

    People will rebel, when you are told " you must think this and that " and " your opinion must be the same as mine or you are racist / sexist / homophobic / non-inclusive etc etc etc " people will push against it

    it isnt helped that people can do this from the safety of behind a keyboard or screen

    Re: Gender Pronouns

    Hen (Swedish: [ˈhɛnː] (About this soundlisten)) is a gender-neutral personal pronoun in Swedish intended as an alternative to the gender-specific hon ("she") and han ("he"). It can be used when the gender of a person is not known or when it is not desirable to specify them as either a "she" or "he". The word was first proposed in 1966, and again in 1994, with reference to the Finnish hn, a personal pronoun that is gender-neutral, since Finnish does not have grammatical genders

    To be fair though, you were posting Islamophobic slurs on here before it was cool, Matt.

    Youve been brain washed, stop reading the brain rotting nonsense youve 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.

    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.

    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.
