    She/Her

    Today, I was on the checkout line at one of those mega hardware places. I was trying to figure out if the kid at the register was male or female. When I got to the register...I looked at the name badge figuring that would clue me in:

    CASSANDRA
    (pronouns: she/her)

    The pronouns were added because nobody believes her that she's a she.

    We've reached a new low when one cannot tell the gender of a person right in front of us. Yeah, I realize that's the utopian dream, but come on, have we fallen THAT far?

    I heard on FNC, just the other day, that at the University of Minnesota, faculty can actually be fired--and students expelled--for using gender-specific pronouns.

    Personally, I despise the use of the gender-neutral "they" (or "them," or "their") when the antecedent is singular--even if the gender is unspecified or unknown. They simply do not match. (Example: "If someone [singular] is going to come today, I hope that they [plural] will do so soon.")

    In order to be gender-inclusive, it would be much better to say, "If someone is going to come today, I hope that he or she will do so soon."

    It is really not that troublesome to add just a couple of words.

    So just refer to everyone as it...that's not at all gender specific. Case closed.

    The Devil whispered in Trumps ear and said,
    "you're not strong enough to withstand the storm".
    President Trump whispered back,"I am The Storm"!

    Yes. Why has truth suddenly become a bad thing?
    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    It keeps the printing industry in business.

    That would be a great opportunity for a 15 second video moment, that would probably go viral. You find someone who looks the opposite and their pronoun says the opposite. So for instance, you find Maybe tomboy looking chick whose pronoun says he. You ask, "do you have a penis"?
