Do we really want to be filling up our jails with persons whose only crime was to use the wrong pronoun, and so offend a Transgendered Person? [Editor’s Note: there is no such thing as a “transgendered person.” There are only persons who say they are transgendered persons.] Oh, sure, it’s a crime, all right. But why should honest armed robbers, carjackers, murderers, and thieves have to share their cells with these hate-crime merchants?
But one thing government can do is actually make it impossible to commit this particular hate-crime! Huh? you say. How? you cry. Simple!
Just plug in this sound every time you need to use a pronoun. It will serve for all possible pronouns. Everybody is able to make this sound, although I have no idea how to spell it. Maybe it can’t be spelled. So let this symbol, (&), represent this sound:
There we have it! What could be easier? “Poor Sandy! Did you hear what happened to (&)? Well, (&) was downstairs and (&) phone rang and when (&) ran up to get it, (&) fell…” As if by magic, all hate-crime pronouns disappear.
Indeed, the same general principle might be applied to ALL objectionable language! “(&) think (&) (&) (&)…”
And no one ever need be offended again.
