GRAMMATICAL GENDER CONFUSION DISORDER



Gender confusion is a psychological disorder, but it's more than just that.  It brings with it, other disorders including grammatical disorders.  Gender confused people and those who tolerate them just don’t know how to talk anymore.

People are either fearful of PC speech violations or they have forgotten basic third-grade grammar.  Everywhere in our vernacular street language, as well as in media and literature, is the evident disorder of Pronoun confusion.

The pronouns "they" and "them" are plurals and I find it extremely awkward to use them as PC substitutes for singular, gender specific pronouns.  Besides, it rubs me the wrong way.

For example, if you were to say,  "If a person commits a crime, THEY should be punished,” I think you should be punished for your grammar crime.  The proper pronoun is "he," even if he is a woman because the masculine form is generic for all humans when gender is unspecific or all inclusive.

So just know this; I refuse to submit to ANY PC speech. I don't have the time or the desire to learn and understand all 56 of the gender variations that Facebook now recognizes.  I am just content to go with the two that God ordained at creation; "Male and Female created He, them."

If you are female, I will refer to you with grammatically correct feminine gender pronouns.  If you are male, I will use masculine pronouns.  If I am referring to anyone without gender specificity, I will use the generic masculine pronouns.
 
If you are confused or are not sure what you are, read your birth certificate.  And then, if you are still confused, ask an electrician to explain the difference between the two ends of an extension cord.

It's not really that difficult, folks.  When you confuse pronouns, you sound really stupid.

This ends my helpful hint of the day.  You’re Welcome!
