I Don’t Have a Problem With This, and I’m Sure We’ll See More of It

This is important to some people, and while some of us may not always understand it, we should at least sympathize with it.

Marks & Spencer offers pronoun badges to staff (yahoo.com)

Except for “they”. I draw the line there. I won’t call a single person “they”. And I’m sorry if that offends you. Your choice of a plural pronoun to describe yourself offends me. Unless you have two heads or are suffering from multiple personality disorder, you cannot physically be a “they”. There’s a limit to how far I will ignore science, and that’s my limit.

No, don’t try to argue me out of it. I’m really not interested in what you think are valid arguments. I will admit to being completely close-minded on this issue. My mind is made up, and nothing you or anyone else says is going to change it.

If, at some point in the future, I change my mind (not bloody likely), I will let you know.
