I'm sorry I'm just being honest

But if I meet someone and they say "my personal pronouns are, blah blah blah" my eyes roll back into my head so far I can see my own brain, sorry not sorry.
Just keeping it real, judge me if you like because that's how it goes.

I personally will address people by what they request as for me its a respect thing. I don't judge or criticize anyone who doesn't that is not my place to either.

@LilPrincess I agree with you, but sometimes you gotta step up to the plate when it’s just wrong
LilPrincess · 41-45, F
@Funlov I figure that is a them problem and not mine. I will say i have never heard of these made up ones i hear mention but i come from a small town where this type of stuff doesn't occur

Im just being honest.
When in anyones daily life are they introduced to someone and instead of using names for those introductions, preferred pronouns are used?
Or during a first meeting someone states....hi my name is Alice, please use the pronoun they or them when referring to me?
It's disingenuous to say people do.
Exactly. These LGBT people want to advertise their deviant sexualities and stuff and it's totally inappropriate

@Stargazer89 I think it's more of the Spectrume community than the LGBT

Why do you have that reaction? This is important to some people; why be bothered by it?
@ServantOfTheGoddess because like I said already when I see Hillary Clinton for instance who is 70 something years old say her personal pronouns are she her it just sounds ridiculous to me,she's one of the most famous people on earth, everyone knows she's a woman,that she has to tell us her personal pronouns are she her is pandering and virtue signaling and it annoys me and if it doesn't annoy you, that's fine but I'm speaking for myself
ServantOfTheGoddess · 61-69, M
@FreeSpirit1 I think I would find it annoying from Hillary Clinton too.

I can't deal with that either. If someone were to ask me what my pronouns are I'd just look at them and say. "What do you think?"

I was talking about this to someone and the boy’s sister, who is a college student and an indoctrinated know-it-all was eavesdropping and came into the room and said “no, that’s not right” and then quickly disappeared because it was apparent she was eavesdropping. Which is why I said it loud enough for her to hear because I knew she was playing some kind of games. 😂

Luckily I have not had to deal with one of those woke jokes . The conversation would end right there.
@TexChik some people especially younger ones don't even realize they're doing it, it's like they are brainwashed,mostly they get it from colleges they think it's completely normal

For trans people, I'll gladly address a trans woman with female pronouns and vice versa for trans men and apologize profusely if I ever misgender them. But if someone has some made-up gender with made-up pronouns, I'm not doing that. The furthest I'll go is they/them pronouns, but I am not referring to someone as "ze" or "ge" or whatever. Some argue that the number of people who are like that is incredibly small and that's reason to respect that. But if you ask me, how few there are is reason why they shouldn't be accommodated.

I'm a huge supporter of transgender rights and always will be, but even I have my limits and quite frankly, I find so-called trans people who identify with made-up genders and pronouns detrimental to the transgender rights movement.

Good way to be 👍

EVERYTHING is now politicized. I just laugh and walk away...quickly. Without looking back.
My pronoun is the dollar 💸

@SW-User If that type of thing is required mine will be “Kiss My Butt”
Livingwell · 61-69, M
I think such labels are dangerous. Some may think it is helping to define their identity when in many cases it becomes a stereotype. I don't understand the need for someone to announce to the world that I'm this or that either. How about "My name is Bill or Susan. Nice to meet you!"
hunkalove · 61-69, M
As a writer I know information is important. Can you imagine reading a novel and you don't know if the main character is male or female?
@hunkalove I'm not following your question, male or female is straightforward. When Hillary Clinton who is 72 years old I think says "hi I'm Hillary Clinton my pronouns are she her" what is the purpose of that? she's been on this Earth 72 years and everyone knows she's a woman, what is the purpose of saying she/ her? I don't get it and like I said , my eyes roll back in my head. For those who think it's fine, that's cool too. I speak for me alone.
hunkalove · 61-69, M
@FreeSpirit1 Who cares? Not important.
@hunkalove well it was important enough for you to take the effort to comment that is not important enough for me to comment so there's that
Yeah I'm not doing the whole pronouns thing that's too advanced for me. I'm cool with the way things were back in the day, he/she, him/her 🙂
specman · 51-55, M
I look at it as I see it. If people are offended by my pronouns obviously I will be offended by theirs.

I would turn my back on them and just walk away. If they started to follow me and harass me then they might end up having me call the ambulance service for them and the police as I would file assault charges. I know all the local cops so I would not have much problem.
Torsten · 36-40, M
I would say 99% of the population do the exact same thing
LilPrincess · 41-45, F
Thank ya kindly for the BC
FeetAreFantastic · 41-45, M
If someone has specific pronouns that they prefer to use they should tell me and I will be happy to use them.
But the default should just be what is normal for the gender you are without needing to ask.
caesar7 · 61-69, M
These woke people and their ideologies....makes me sick. 🤮
hunkalove · 61-69, M
@caesar7 That's not woke, it's just political and stupid,
Why would anyone need to say that irl, I just don't get it.

did you miss where I say I speak for myself? don't include me in some group that you want me to be in so you can make a point
Yeah, sure buddy. A quick search on your profile reveals quite unequivocally which is your political leaning and positions on the other topic mentioned, feel free to pretend as much as you want but don't think you'll fool anyone.

If you parrot 1:1 the talking point of the right don't complain when people (rightfully) assume you lean right.
@Elessar so where do I stand on vaccines and masks.. buddy? And what does it have to do with this post.
Elessar · 26-30, M
@FreeSpirit1 It has everything to do with this post, actually. You're here complaining because people shouldn't decide for themselves which is the way they should be addressed - okay, let's do that: you're here pushing rightoid narratives under the guise of free thinking, thus I'm simply giving you a taste of your very own medicine.

To use your own wording: if someone says "don't include me in some group that you want me to be in so you can make a point" when their rhetoric stinks of Republican bullsh*t, my eyes roll back into my head so far I can see my own brain, sorry not sorry.
