Well, the current success of marriage is no better than a coin flip and statistically no different than the success rate of common law relationships.

So yeah.  Maybe marriages to dogs would last longer, and involve less drama than many contemporary marriages.

There's a long tradition of appeasing factions within a party by tossing them the sop of a VP candidate. It leads to friction as often as it leads to unity, but it's political tokenism.

I mean it's normal.

I would guess that the majority of the electorate in your fine state would agree with my prior statement.   I really have no issue with what someone wants to call themselves, but right now, the focus on pronouns is supported almost entirely by Dems and plays to the PC narrative that energizes the MAGA crowd.

You're right...but they (very plural) don't care.



It's called "the singular they," and it's a very old construction that you use often, I'm sure. How convenient, then, that we need something for this situation and there it is.

i'm pretty sure this election is his to lose
from what i can tell, he has enjoyed popular support
all he has to do is make sense, speak with any intelligence
win the centrists, sort of like he has done in the past

"secret police"
jeez, this type of tin foil conspiracy is cancerous
i hope his media team wises up and understands florida is politically and culturally very diverse
i'm not sure people want more toxic campaigning...

The pronoun issue with "they" (IMO) is a problem because basic laws of the English language....singular vs. plural... are obliterated in the "re-use".  I personally like Ze best for non-binary...it can be singular or plural...sounds like he and she...and you don't have to re-write the laws of language to apply it.

Who told you that "they" is strictly plural? They were wrong.

All language is fluid.  Look no further than the N-word, a term of endearment when used within the group(s) it was created to target, yet so dangerous as to never be typed for fear of retribution.  It's literally Voldemort.

I'm all for people doing whatever they want so long as it involves consenting adults.  The pronoun issue with "they" (IMO) is a problem because basic laws of the English language....singular vs. plural... are obliterated in the "re-use".  I personally like Ze best for non-binary...it can be singular or plural...sounds like he and she...and you don't have to re-write the laws of language to apply it.

I'm still recovering from the damage inflicted by Jawn here in Philly...

Yes, great for glib trivialization. All "identities" matter!

I think it's taken on a meaning of "latinx but not hispanic" at least on official surveys.

In regards to the article, I wonder if Democrats have had that conversation with folks who can be described as "visible minorities" who oppose high rates of immigration from their country or region of origin?   I ask because well-meaning white folk who talk to nobody get some really strange ideas as to what "those people" actually want.

Welcome to the romance languages. I'll use whatever term people want me to use, but we get changed to some real nonsense sometimes, and it doesn't solve the problem. In the case of Latinx, if someone says they're Latinx, I assume they're LGBTetc. NTTAWWT but words have meaning and if it's a meaningless word when you start using it, it quickly takes on a meaning.

It was Oriental when I was a kid, then it's Asian. Solved the problem of being defined by where you live relative to Europe, I guess, but Asia is also not Europe, so I never was sure it advanced the cause.
