P.C. ran amok

Bruce from Cardiff sent this one over today. 

I rarely see eye to eye on ideological issues with my conservative pal Bruce. 

But in this case, he is absolutely correct.

Denuding the popular lexicon of the word "chief" lest we offend indigenous communities?

How freaking stupid.

I hear there is a whole crew of Chief Petty Officers heading toward that school district with cans of spinach in one hand and the other arm flexed like Popeye.

It’s completely out of control. I also don’t want to have to use new pronouns just to please someone who doesn’t want to be a he or a she.

In this modern age we are now free to pick and choose our own personal pronouns; even the pronoun they... if you feel like your personality may be split, or you don't want to acknowledge your sex.

It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world.

I have a different theory. I wrote about this years ago. All the Pfthalates, PFAS, teflon and plastic in our bodies is messing up our endocrine systems. They found out that fish were changing sexes about fifteen years ago. I think the reason for the spate of gender fluidity is environmental, Lola notwithstanding.
