I just can’t stand it anymore.
Try this on for towering idiocy. The governing body of the city of Stamford, Connecticut, a 40-member Board of Representatives, has voted to get rid of “gender pronouns” like he/she, his/her, in all written regulations, etc., pertaining to members of the board (http://www.stamfordadvocate.com/news/article/Connecticut-city-s-elected-body-eliminates-gender-12487367.php).
“It’s an act to acknowledge the members of the board… cannot always be described as he or she.”
Which brings to mind a line from Ray Bradbury’s classic little horror story, The Jar: “Is it a he, is it a she, or just a plain old it?”
What kind of driveling dolts are they electing in that town?
Posterity will laugh at us for this.
