… Think Again: Washington Post Juicebox Wanker: I have a serious reason for raising my cats gender-neutral.
The cats’ lives wouldn’t change, I reasoned, and it would help me learn to use plural pronouns for my friends, neighbors and colleagues who individually go by they, their and them. Even though using they, them and their as singular pronouns grates on many people because it’s grammatically incorrect, it seems to be the most popular solution to the question of how to identify people without requiring them to conform to the gender binary of female and male. It also just feels right to refer to people as they wish to be referred to.
Not to mention, since Transgendereds are really trendy right now, it got “freelance writer Lauren Taylor” a story in the Washington Post and makes her a finalist when she runs into her other wankers at Whole Foods or and they hold their weekly “Wankers Trying to Out-Virtue-Signal Other Wankers” contest.
I don’t really care if one deranged woman decides she is going to use her “fur-children” as stand-ins for people she may or may not know who may or may not suffer from the trendy mental illness of gender dysphoria. But that a major newspaper thought this was newsworthy is fracking ridonkulous.
