I learned it’s illegal in my state to refuse to use someone’s preferred pronoun. Almost every presenter had a story of a time they got a coworker, employee, or boss fired. A speaker (pronouns xe, xyr, xemself) passionately told us of a time when xe had an older coworker who referred to xem as “ma’am.” When xe repeatedly told him xe preferred to be referred to as xem, he responded that he couldn’t, because he had been brought up to be polite and use sir and ma’am.
A quick visit to the supervisor resulted in the coworker being fired. There was standing ovation in the conference hall, with one member of the audience saying how “brave” xe was to enact change. Xe publicly responded that xe “needed to go above his head to get what I needed.”
The left has succeeded in creating a system that punishes people for refusing to deny reality.
George Orwell said, “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.” I bet he never imagined the boot would be pink with sequins and high heels.
There’s a nutty “scientist” out there who claims that Earth is a prison planet for aliens. If he had gone with ‘Asylum,’ I might be inclined to agree.
