Pronouns as Thoughtcrime

They start by demanding that you tolerate deviance and depravity. Then they impose deviance and depravity. Before you know it, nothing other than deviance and depravity is allowed, normality having been forbidden. Once again, we can watch our dystopian future unfold in California. There, the pronouns “he” and “she” are regarded as hate speech that cannot be spoken during State Senate committee hearings.

It is required to use the plural pronoun “they” instead, in order to demonstrate reverence for the sexually perplexed and compliance with their deranged agenda.

Senate Judiciary Committee chair Hannah-Beth Jackson’s announcement that the pronouns had been banned included this comic exchange:

“The world is a different place. My grammar teacher is long gone and we won’t be hearing from her,” the senator said as someone quickly corrected her. “— from them! From they!”

Spiked Online editor Brendan O’Neill comments:

“They now want to control not just hateful language and racist language, which we all agree is a bad thing, but everyday speech. ‘He’ and ‘she.’ The words that people use all the time in everyday conversation to describe men and women. They want to dig down so far into how we speak, and ultimately into how we think, that they are willing to ban the most common words in the English language.”

That’s what you get for letting them ban “hateful language and racist language.” Those who define what “hateful” and “racist” mean will soon ban every thought in your head.

Syme from Orwell’s 1984 would be delighted. At this rate, future editions of the Newspeak Dictionary will consist of no words at all. Inner party members will restrict vocalization to approving grunts in obeisance to leftism and hostile grunts against those failing to submit to it. MSNBC has effectively implemented this policy already.

On a tip from Lyle.
