This may make someone mad. Okay, Fine. I'm 80; I can have my own opinions. They can't fire me. I suppose they could take me to Washington and make me testify before a Congressional Committee.
I could care less if you are a guy who thinks he is a gal - or a gal who thinks she is a guy. It's your life. Ruin it if you want. All this mixed up sexist stuff, may mess up lots of people over time. I figure that I won't solve this situation.
With that over announcement over, there was an article in the Temple Daily Telegram from a few days back titled:
"United States issues its 1st passport with 'X' gender marker."
This person in Colorado, a State almost as freaky as San Francisco and Oregon, wanted a passport. However, this person doesn't IDENTIFY as male or female and wants an "X" placed in that area on the passport. Of course, our liberal freaks obliged. Now I am quoting from the paper.
"The department did not identify the passport recipient, but Dana Zzyym of Fort Collins, Colo., told the Associated Press in a telephone interview it was its passport. Zzyym, who prefers a gender-neutral pronoun, has been in a legal battle......" Zzyym is pronounded Zimm. I don't know if that is a long I or a short I. Does it really matter?
So now we know. Cousin It on the Addams Family is gender neutral. And, we must - that is MUST - call Dana "It." If we refuse to use "It" then we could be called out for hate speech. I'm betting that before long they (excuse me) the its of the world will use a good ole English word as a pronoun. They will incorporate a word, as they did with "Gay" and the "Rainbow," making the word unusable by the common market.
Now, I ask. Am I the only person (a "He") who finds this pure nonsense. Here we are catering to someone with either a mental problem (hate speech again) or someone starving for attention. I could prolong this conversation but I choose to move on.
The world is full of morons. I use to tell my students: "Don't do stupid things." I am still waiting for someone to apply for a marriage license to marry a sheep. Maybe they already have and I missed it.
