It's all garbage. No one is going to play along trying to use all these nonsensical words.

Well, Amanda, I'm going to keep using the words I was taught when I began to speak, some many, many years ago and were words that humans used to describe men and women for untold millennia. If a mentally ill person wants to describe themselves in whatever way they see fit by words that were manufactured 5 years ago, that's all right with me but by the same respect they must be all right with me if I don't go along with their mental illness issues. I refuse to be an accomplice to the destruction of Civilization.

Perhaps they should use terms that more accurately describes them such as, stupid/ ignorant, insane/teched or moronic/infantile.

Destruction of civilization begins with the destruction of language, and of meaning. If Amanda ever tried to run this crap by me in my day to day life, she'd be smarting from the tongue lashing she would get. What an immoral fool. She knows nothing worth knowing.

If they insist on something "out of the ordinary" they will get referred to as It/That from me, and accept it ...or screw right off. In nearly EVERYTHING i do I am either an employer or a customer, and in either role "I'm always right".

I have concocted my response to anyone telling me his/her "preferred" pronoun. I will explain that the words coming out of my mouth are mine, not theirs. When I use a pronoun it has nothing to do with gender but biological sex. If they a good enough makeup artist, they may fool me, but I will use the pronoun that I decide corresponds with their biological sex.

A pair of climate activists in Scotland will face trial after allegedly vandalizing a display case holding national hero William Wallace’s broadsword. "The police say the accused believe they were raising awareness of climate change and that their actions were necessary for the cause," prosecutor Eilidh Smith said. Alexander Cloudley, 29 and Katrielle Chan, 21, both from Glasgow, pleaded not guilty to vandalism in Stirling Sheriff Court last week. They allegedly damaged and spray-painted the case holding Wallace of "Braveheart" fame’s sword. They each face a single charge alleging that, on March 2, they entered the National Wallace Monument and

President Biden unveiled his proposed budget for fiscal year 2024 on Thursday, which in part took aim at billions of dollars of tax subsidies the White House said benefit the fossil fuel industry. According to the White House, the proposed budget would strip $31 billion worth of "special tax treatment" for oil and gas company investments in addition to other fossil fuel tax preferences. The release further criticized oil companies for raking in record profits last year and for failing to invest in greater energy production.

Bradley started a pediatric gender clinic in 1975 aimed at treating children with gender dysphoria — a deep sense of discomfort with one’s body and biological sex — in which she offered a therapy-focused approach; most patients outgrew their feelings of being transgender over time, she told the DCNF.
