Jordan Peterson refers to this kind of thing as fantasy play for adults. Children create these fantasies as a matter of their psychological development. Cowboys and Indians err Native Americans.

The difference being, when little J'ohnnie and Sha-quinda Sue take on fantasy roles in their backyard, they aren't harrassing society with some of the stupidest bullshit to ever appear on this planet.

Dude/Bro
El Conquistador / El Conquistador
It/Them

And so on...

If someone really DNFAF this might be interesting:

He/Her/Theirs

Male if subject, female if object, neutral if possessive. Let the Gender Nazis try to figure out what to use when, and bust them with a complaint to HR any time they screw up.






I'm alright it's the rest of the world that's all screwed up!

No, Daoism isn't a religion

We have been warned at work not to ever "deadname" anyone. Like if Michael decides he's trans and becomes Michelle, you MUST call him Michelle and calling him Michael is akin to saying the "N-word" now.

After D reported both of these incidents to me on Saturday, I texted My Boss to ask where I could find the / handbook to find the Respectful Workplace Policy because I knew that discrimination in regards to someones gender, gender expression, and gender identity is a violation to policy. My Boss told me to write a full statement for you so we can try and fix this issue as soon as possible. I thought asking D for statements would do better for us since both of these events happened to him and he reported it to me.

You need to get this to HR/legal if your have a team, and get advise on how to handle it per the handbook that was referenced.

Does the company have a "Respectful Workplace Policy"?

I'd say you have a trans person that is looking to either sue or get "Villan" reprimanded/fired for failing to follow company rules.

HR needs to address it, correct the actions, reprimand the problem if its a violation of the employee handbook.

The undertones are a warning...

Back when I was part of the corporate world I got a disciplinary letter put in my file for referring to our management group as "you guys" in a meeting. There was one female manager. She took exception. She invited me into her office the next day to review and sign the letter. I feigned reading it with interest and handed it back to her saying this is wrong. She said are you denying you referred to our group as "you guys"?

I replied "I Am. I said You'se guys"! Never did sign that letter but when you refuse the senior manager signs it and puts it in you're file anyhow. Best part was she lost her job about six months later and I was chosen to replace her.


I would've stated that the English language lost its second person plural after the Norse invasion beginning in the eight century, and that I am open to the company-approved English language equivalent. Otherwise, to prevent any offense, I would gladly use the second person plural in Spanish if the need ever again arises. I would then just sit there and look at the vapid expression on that moron's face.

Southerners, being the pragmatic sort, have long ago solved this problem with that ever-so-useful and glorious "Ya'll." It gets nobody in trouble and ruffles no gender feathers. The perfect second person plural.

I'm thinking a roll of those "Hello, my name is" stickers is in order.

At the beginning of a meeting -- or even a discussion -- present the roll and a pack of Sharpies. Refuse to participate until everyone has a name tag. Then use only that name.

Would someone write "your highness" on a name tag? Youbetcha! Use it! Might as well have some fun with it, right? Big Grin




God bless America.

Even before gender pronoun issues was a thing, for some reason, I regularly reversed gender pronouns unintentionally.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Yes I know. What’s new is the woke idiots taking this Native American term for themselves.

Geez.

It's a fabrication, like Kwanzaa, and not, centuries old.

I have actually been corrected that “y’all” is singular and “all y’all” is the plural form.

I went through my annual ethics training this week.
15 years ago it took 20 minutes.
Now it is an hour and a half due to Him/Her It/Them BS.

I told my boss after that I now identify myself as a nonbinary lesbian and want to be referred as Billina the Wonder Texan.

Even the Hindus I work with think it is ridiculous.

Time for the new 'Professionalism in the Workplace ' initiative... Wink

Everyone gets fancy new name tags with their 'Firstname LASTNAME' conspicuously displayed (last name must be bolded in ALL CAPS). As pronouns & first names are obviously too casual for the Professional Workplace, and therefore 'unprofessional', going forward EVERYONE gets referred to by their last name only!

Referring to people by their last name works in the military, has been widely used by sports team coaches and was employed by a few wise ass HS teachers of mine that coincidentally coached as well....Problem Solved!

My co-worker has solved this problem. He just refers to everybody as "asshole."
