New Pride Definitions

Turns out pride doesn’t mean what you thought it meant. It merely supersedes and bans all other forms of pride.

But culture and media does not like to take second fiddle to anyone. To prove this, NPR released a tweet on their new pride piece:

“Not sure how to ask someone their pronouns? Or confused about what different gender terms mean? We put together a 101 guide to common terms about gender identity, how to talk about gender respectfully — and why it matters ” https://trib.al/Ytgls4P  Jun 2, 2021

Yes, asking someone about ‘their’ choice of pronouns has always been a difficult issue for me. I don’t know about you? I hate that.

NPR “Issues of equality and acceptance of transgender and nonbinary people — along with challenges to their rights have become a major topic in the headlines. These issues can involve words and ideas and identities that are new to some.

That’s why we’ve put together a glossary of terms relating to gender identity. Our goal is to help people communicate accurately and respectfully with one another.”

Is that really your goal? It goes on to say their guide is not exhaustive. But it couldn’t be because these terms keep evolving. A new one will come out about every six months just to keep you on your toes, and give the perpetual Woke brand new terms. It is meant to go on and on.

The whole idea is to keep the people as confused about gender identity as science should be in determining it. There are no rules, no limits, only desire. All other factors need not apply. 

 

All or nothing, and everything in between.

But if you thought this little experiment or lesson is about what you should call it, the real lesson here is what you should not say. Or, in other words, they get to invent new terms or social norms every day which render your terminology and opinions obsolete.

Everyone is expected to adapt to their slide rule of gender. Sorry, that is the way it works. Your language and speech shall be limited while theirs is unlimited. You thought there were ground rules for all this? Too bad.

“One thing to note: Language changes. Some of the terms now in common usage are different from those used in the past to describe similar ideas, identities and experiences. Some people may continue to use terms that are less commonly used now to describe themselves, and some people may use different terms entirely. What’s important is recognizing and respecting people as individuals.”

 

Indeed language changes. So does culture change, as I’ve said before. But what happens without some basic common definitions?

According to the comments, it seems the main purpose was trolling for criticism so they could scream “transphobia” or something at critics. That means I am phobic or hateful while they need to be treated with the utmost respect. See how this works?

This of course requires that other, older social norms be disposed of, if they were ever proper ones in the first place. Follow along: so if everything before now was only a lie, then their new revision must unequivocally be the truth. Make sense?

Personally, I take my gender identity with a side order of reality.

 

Bathroom policy and cultural identity

As part of the “radical” bathroom policies Obama is forcing down America’s throat, I think it could be time for a new disclaimer.

See, bathrooms may be available to a person depending on who they currently are identifying as. But there is a fly in the ointment.(Okay, it’s loaded but bare with me)

I think we now need to have a disclaimer on each bathroom.

 

Updated bathroom policy

The person — if that is not in question — who uses this bathroom is acting according to his/her/its own preference at the time of usage. However, this bathroom, and the people who supply it, do not assume any responsibility for the sex or gender claim of the user upon leaving the bathroom. If they leave the bathroom and change their mind on their current gender identification status, then this establishment and bathroom is in no way responsible for that decision.

And therefore, we cannot be held liable for the patrons decision to affirm or deny their gender status at the time of usage or after using this facility. Please be advised accordingly.

For other patrons: you use this facility at your own risk and at the discretion, personal risk or offense of other patrons — be they currently identifying with your gender or someone else’s. We are not liable. And should they make a mistake by misidentifying with their ‘appropriate’ gender for any reason, we are not liable for their mistake, failure, or misidentity mishap. And neither are they.

Thank you for your inconvenience during the identity crisis of people throughout the country.

Your cooperation is appreciated,

Gender Identity Crisis Reaction and Intervention Management Team

Please also be advised that gender policy must not be confused with “appropriation of culture,” which is a major societal problem. The conduct of “appropriating” another culture for any reason is still highly offensive and rightfully condemned.

One’s cultural identity is not chosen by an individual regardless of the reasons to do so. Any questions, see the Cultural Identity Awareness Team.
