People have completely forgotten how people talk and they now think like children as a result.
I have a young child and often times when I'm telling him something like, "This tastes good," in regard to a meal or something that I'm eating, he'll sometimes respond, "To you." I'll tell him that yes, of course, I mean to me because that's how people talk. When we express our opinions about something, we don't always preface it in a way such as, "I, your father, who working together with your mother and created you, who are now sitting at this table, do hereby announce the opinion I have regarding this meal that sits before us on this 23rd day of June in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ 2022..."
But that's exactly how I feel like these liberal snowflakes think.
For example, some video that was released by the U.S. Navy is trying to "create a safe space for everybody" by making sure to include gender pronouns when they state their names.
“Hi! My name is Jony, and I use he/him pronouns,” said Naval Undersea Warfare Center engineer Jony Rozon as the video began.
“Hi. My name is Conchy, and I use she/her pronouns,” fellow Naval engineer Conchy Vasquez added.
Why stop there? Why not tell them what kind of private parts you're equipped with as well? What is the need to state pronouns in the first place? Why is it that they need to pertain to "gender identity" and not biological status?
This whole mess is just softening Americans, and for them to use this crap with sailors is going to wreck our military, because you can't be tough enough for war if you're not tough enough for words.
The team gives an almost four-minute lecture about the need of "affirming" people's identities by always using their preferred pronouns, as neglecting to do so is a form of "disrespect" and may infringe on someone else's safe space. According to them, one simple method to avoid bigotry is to "include our pronouns in our communications," demonstrating that you are an "ally" and someone who "accepts everybody."
Rozon and Vasquez also emphasized the need of using "gender-neutral terminology" to avoid offending someone who has not yet decided on their pronouns.
“Instead of saying something like ‘Hey guys,’ you can say, ‘Hey everyone,’ or ‘Hey team,'” Rozon said.
“Another way that we could show that we’re allies and that we accept everybody is to maybe include our pronouns in our emails or, like we just did, introduce ourselves using our pronouns,” Vasquez added.
Oh, and if you misgender someone, don't worry, there's a way back into the Navy's good graces. As Vasquez says, “it’s not the end of the world” – well, as long as you “correct” your bigoted behavior.
The following is a clip from a Navy training video:
“I think the first thing to recognize is that it’s not the end of the world. You correct yourself and move on, or you accept the correction and move on. The most important thing I can tell you is do not put the burden of making you feel good about your mistake on the person that you just misgendered,” Vasquez explained.
