Yeah you don't get to change the language from on high. It belongs to everyone. Stop trying to make they/them/xir happen, it's not gonna happen.
L'Académie française has entered the chat.
Also: fuck the French.
iel est stupide
Yeah , next thing you know Ebonics will be everywhere !
There are instances a singular they is proper grammar.
I need a helper. They need to be strong.
Nope still wrong. Colloquial, but wrong.
I disagree. Sex is unknown they is 100% acceptable and well documented as such.
I've seen the "evidence." It's BS. Masculine is and has always been the default in English.
You're correct. The masculine form is the "unmarked" form. Which makes it kind of stupid to advocate for he/she vs. just using he.
You can disagree all you want. You're still wrong.
Sex is unknown, IT, is much more appropriate....
I like this. This will be my new way to name a confused groomer.
Using it for a person is dehumanizing, not acceptable grammar, and inappropriate.
Humans aren't it -- things, inanimate objects, liberals, pennywise the clown are IT, not humans.
"It" is one of those "technically correct" things, the best kind of correct. "It" is considered improper English when referring to a person, yes, but it's not "dehumanizing" - another of the left's controlled speech words - you brainwashed rube.
Did you miss that part?
it should shut the fuck up when speaking about things it doesn't know.
The moment they begin to question their existence as either Male or Female, they become something else....
When they begin the changes, they have become something other than NORMAL, hence, ""IT"", is a better term than any other....
You must not know any British people because they do it all the time. It's informal, for casual conversations. Watch Sherlock or Luther or any other British show and you'll see.
In this forum, respectfully, fuck the British
My ancestors said fuck the British around 1776 and never stopped saying it.
And the French.
I need two helpers. They need to be strong.
I need a helper. He needs to be strong.
I need a strong helper.
How do you know the helper is male? What if you do not know what sex they are? I need a helper and they need to be strong. I don't care what sex they are as long as they help.
When you don’t know, he’s male. If you specifically want a female helper, then you write “she.” If you are concerned that your helper will be offended that you referred to him by the wrong pronoun, you don’t want his help anyway.
It is absurd to use a plural pronoun to refer to one person. And anyone who can make you participate in absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
Who gives a shit. The default is masculine.
I see this shit on reddit all the time.
In a hobby community that's made up of 99.5% males, redditors are refering to people as "they/them"" on the odd chance that they'd be talking about a female.
Makes my brain hurt.
Default is male. And if she's a female, she'll let you know and then you switch to female wording. Not complicated. C’mon man.
As soon as we agreed to call mRna therapy a vaccine it was doomed to be "normalized"
Singular "they" implies an impersonal level of distance and ignorance of a person, to the point you literally don't know a person's sex.
We can have a reasonable debate over whether it should actually be used in that instance, but I'm glad we can all agree that using it to refer to someone of known sex is absolutely fucking ridiculous.
And you're wrong. Masculine is the default in English.
i don use tranny dickless faggots words fuck those mutilated monsters od the world a favor and kys soon asp actually sooner the better
The only time it's appropriate to do it is if you're British and having a casual conversation. I need a helper and they need to be strong. I don't care what sex they are as long as they help.
Or anything else
