Some of us are still sane, Gryph. I still refer to the chick that brings you drinks on a plane as a stewardess and a cop is a policeman... our mail is brought by a mailman except when it's a she and then its the mail lady.

Oh, it is.

Many better, or worse, reasons to be angry/upset at the UN for.

I'll make no secret of the fact that I think the UN is mostly, perhaps even completely, useless, as it's currently formatted.

But, it does give smaller nations a voice...usually a disregarded voice, an ignored voice, but a voice none the less.

Lol!!!

I think I'm way too old to start learning a 'new' language simply to pander to

those who spend their lives looking for things to be 'butt hurt' about.

If it's a dude, I call him a steward. Thankfully, most people are still sexually dimorphic enough that you have little trouble telling.

There are two sexes. Male and Female.

If someone wants to pretend that they are not a male or female then fine. I am not and should not be under any damned obligation to pretend with them.

Whehter any of that is a sign of being sane, or not, could be debated.

It is what you are comfortable with, and there's no reason to change.

For example, I already use mostly the terms on the right side of that little graphic. That's what I'm comfortale with.

It doesn't mean I'm right or good or whatever, NOR does it mean you're wrong or bad if you use the terms on the left.

It's just ... words. Names. Language changes over time.

One thing that I never got is when women get mad at being called females.

When I was in the navy every woman was called a female.

But, on the civilian sides of things it's almost worse than calling a woman a **SNIP**

I always figured it was just another way to get offended about something.

......and that was "Person's without hats" with "The safety dance", an appropriate song for these times I must say.

Don't touch that dial because today we are rolling out all the classics on Humankind2020 FM, your number one music station.

Next up "The Weather Persons" with "It's raining Humans"'.

One wonders why the UN is policing gender equality policy. Their original purpose was to keep the peace among nations. But the plan to promote world government is totalitarian in nature and Agenda 21 is intended to control what we eat, how much water we consume, and now I guess to control our speech.

'Hello i'm jack and this my exhibit A diane, and this my son John and his exhibit B Anna'

What PC lunacy. When will it stop? Hell my username could be politically incorrect because it comes from a video game, it seems like every term you use is a social faux pas.

Oh I still use stewardess and policeman.. and mailman.. that sort of thing. Now, if someone were polite and asked that I used whatever pronoun or title they preferred, Id make a point to always do it. I might think its stupid personally, but politeness always wins with me. Commandments and hissy fits dont.

I think that the UN has lost the plot or they are really floating stupid things to see just how much we will tow the line. Considering that the UN is a political organization, I fail to see how we are surprised by what nonsense they promote. The WHO as a part of that political arm.. we should always assume there is an angle or agenda with them as well. I fail to see why we ( the US) should fund a foreign political party much less fund the medical wing of that organization.

Jesus, Pol Pot much?

Every single person I know and associate with on a regular basis has at least a bachelors degree and none of us drink pinot (out of a box) or "talk about" new politically correct words and phrases.

In fact, we all think it's just as stupid as you do and we have no idea where it is coming from either but we suspect its a social media phenomenon.

Whats really funny are the uneducated, arguing over what pronoun they want this week, box wine drinkers looking down on the uneducated Pabst Blue Ribbon nascar enthusiast drinkers..

I cant really scoff though.. I drink my Chambord with Dr pepper in a wine glass so I look super cool. I also drink my Jack on ice and a bunch of sugar cubes but thats a story for another time.
