WILLIAM SHATNER IS VERY CORRECT
YOU READ YOUR MANGA, DUDE
So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN AND THEIR RIGHT-WING CEO AND THEIR BULLSHIT CORPORATION BEHAVIOR
stop saying “his or her”
piss off prescriptivists
acknowledge nonbinary identities
make your sentences less clunky
advocate for common usage which is what leads to grammatical acceptance
Fun anecdote: I have gradually used “they” at work to refer to people whose genders have not been made explicit to me - shipping, usually (ie, “would you like them to sign for the package?”) and nobody even seems to notice. They just answer my questions/continue the conversation without missing a beat.
