Get a Load of This

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).

Why?

“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.

    “Posterity will laugh at us for this.”

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this amounts to a war on reality, nothing more, nothing less. I wonder how many people you could refer to as “it” before one of the “its” took exception. Where’s John Wayne, when we need him? 🙂

      Yes, it’s postmodern relativism and it will be our undoing if we don’t do something about it. This serves absolutely no functional purpose other than to make some liberals feel good that they accomplished something. Because if liberals are not ruining someone else’s day or destroying social norms that have existed since time immemorial, they would have nothing left to live for. Thank goodness English doesn’t have gender nouns like Spanish, or else they would be butching the language.

    It’s all a bunch of s/h/it as my Professor of History at Liberty University would say.
