Both from the Daily Fail, but still…

The inoffensive everyday phrases used by reporter Alison Parker that earned her a death sentence because Flanagan deemed them ‘racist’

And…

University of Tennessee tells staff and students to stop using ‘he’ and ‘she’ – and switch to ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead

Huh.

So, what links these two? Both are cases of people who are defined by their ability to be offended by the inoffensive. Both are cases of people who think that the imagined  slights they wrap their lives around are so serious that they feel the need to take it out on others. Both are likely pointers towards the society of tomorrow where wholly *insane* people control the very words people use.

    The whole gender thing is retarded beyond description. Can we just start referring to these idiots as “it” since they are mortally offended by he/she?

    aww look, he has one of the prototypical hysteria causing “assault pistols”, the notorious(ly inaccurate) TEC 22.

    Dangerous against cans and bottles at the range, and thats about it. I suspect he was a loud member of the “gun control” crowd too?

    Asking a person who they want to be addressed is respectful, but those pronouns give me a headache.

      I still don’t see what’s wrong with”hey, you.” Or if you want to be formal, “hey, you, asshole.”
