Your University Pushes Pronouns? The Prince of Darkness Rules Your School
Throughout my 20 years as a professional journalist, I, on occasion, have interviewed scientists and scientific researchers, and I confess that 95 percent of the time I couldn’t grasp what they were talking about.
Scientists and other members of that discipline are a different breed than the rest of us.
These are people I have little, if anything, in common with. I worship at the altar of Jesus. They worship at the altar of Charles Darwin and Carl Sagan. And, yes, some of these people lived up to the stereotypes of the nerds you saw on The Big Bang Theory. They were just like Sheldon Cooper. They were socially awkward. Some were too terrified of germs to shake hands. Many of them refused face-to-face or even phone interviews and preferred to take and answer my questions via email. Social interaction was not their strong suit.
Oh yeah, many of them were not necessarily well-groomed or slaves to fashion.
And all of this is OK. As an uncle of mine once said “It takes different types of people with different skillsets to make the world spin around.”
But I digress.
What’s most important to remember is that these individuals ardently believed in science, the scientific method, and that scientific findings in and of themselves were not necessarily settled science.
Around the fall of 2020, as I corresponded with these scientists and researchers, I noticed a peculiar new trend among them that contradicted their cold and sterile devotion to their life’s work.
They ended all of their emails with their preferred pronouns:
He/Him, She/Her, He/Her, She/Him, they, or ze (what in the name of Hell?).
These weren’t the dingbat liberal arts professors either. These were scientists. Scientists who are supposed to understand the difference between men and women and, most importantly, that only two genders exist.
To quote Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry Callahan character in the movie Magnum Force, upon learning he’d have to partner with an inexperienced female detective per the mayor’s initiative to please female voters, “That’s a hell of a price to pay for being stylish.”
As National Public Radio reported earlier this year, personnel at 20 colleges and universities nationwide have jumped on the pronoun train. They are revising their pronoun policies and updating school directories to include preferred gender identities.
The academics have forsaken science in favor of political correctness.
One can only imagine the punishments that await the religious and/or commonsense students who refuse to play ball with this nonsense. Will more of those kids pivot to more religious schools or even trade schools? Will they suffer professionally if they go on to work for woke corporations who require preferred pronouns in all their paperwork and other interactions?
These are dark times. Anyone who partakes in this pronoun garbage does the bidding of Beelzebub.
Again, that’s a hell of a price to pay for being stylish.
I said what I said.
