Oh, piss off, lady.
Or Adam and Yves! Maybe their heads will explode if we throw a dash of xenophobia into the mix!
I still don't get why so many people get their panties in a twist over pronouns. What does it actually cost you to use someone's preferred pronouns? If my name was Thomas and I told people I preferred Tom, nobody would say, "No! Jesus hates Toms! I will not call you Tom!"
What is the big deal?
Ms Ricard and her antediluvian beliefs can fuck the hell right off!
of course right speech would also solve the situation, when you are an employee and your clients are children, right speech means not verbally assaulting them, they are trapped with you, they did not choose you, if you attack them by dehumanizing them they cannot trust or learn from you, you are a corpse.
I have a grammar police reaction to non-traditional pronouns but I recognize it for what it is - a sadly inadequate ability for the English language to accommodate people’s identity needs. But maybe I’ll sue the ghost of Emily Post just to make myself feel better about my fantasy victimhood.
That’s why everybody was always picking on me!
it is interesting how these same people seem fine with chick fil a forcing their employees to tell lies to customers, like it is my pleasure even if the pleasure would really consist of bodily harm to the person spoken too, but as always hypocrites gotta crit. teachers are paid to teach, a child that hates a teacher cannot learn from them as well as they could from someone less a child of hell.
If mens couldn’t have nipplies how’s could we enjoy our man bewbs henngghh???
d) assign teams and face off at the local coliseum
Jesus loves me best!
The original "Big Tent" message.
When I was in high school, my biology teacher, who was very cool, fun and a great teacher, had substitutes take roll by having us put our names on a sheet of paper. (We were a bunch of nerdy boring kids so that was a trustworthy method.)
When he returned, he was not amused that… someone (a-hem) had added “King of All France” to his name,
Since that title was unacceptable, the next time he was out, that same someone added “Tsar of All the Russias” instead.
No, no, you should sue Strunk and White and every middle school teacher who treated their cranky prescriptivist screed like it was the One True Grammar that was, is now, and forever shall be amen.
"Any policy that requires Ms. Ricard to refer to a student by a gendered, non-binary, or plural pronoun (e.g., he/him, she/her, they/them, zhe/zher, etc.)"
Finally, I agree with the right about ONE thing. I'm not calling someone "they/them or zhe/zher." It is dumb and confusing. I'll call you whatever you like, but I can't totally dismiss the gods of grammar. You can only be one person at a time, and whenever I read something about "they" I'm completely confused about who the author is talking about.
That never really worked out so well, from what I read.
Lots of Christians miss the fact that they’re supposed to model their behavior after Jesus’s behavior. They prefer the role of judgmental, wrathful God so they just go with that.
