fmd, and let me guess if I asked what your opinion was on preferred pronouns, you’d be pushing a whole different perspective on words... Your argument would be something like,

A: No, It is not ‘just a word’.
B: words has meaning, they are chosen because they resonate most with ones indentity.
C: you always should be respectful at the way some words can affect others
what is you on preferred pronouns mrErythroxylum

Haha you guys are the loons, that you come to these conclusions that are actually backwards and think it represents the reality. No wonder the left has lost the plot.
So, how big was the campaign to get Coon Cheese to change their name?

So what power does the word Coon have? Which definition of the word Coon has the most power?

So why can't they change their name if they want to?

Geez you’re particularly behind the times on this issue. Very unwoke of you. There are heaps of invented pronouns now for this.

I’ve just added mine to the list. I mean the left love to redefine words to control people. Its their m.o. ...Like ‘racism’ means pretty much anything to do with race now. So I’m just adding my words to what I would like to be addressed as. It’s what I identify as.

You seem to know more about this sir. It isn't an issue I follow
What other made up pronouns are around?

Your attempt at humour isn't of assistance.
They aren't pronouns. The initial complaint was of people choosing pronouns. Your poor attempt at humour is to try and pick random words, claim they are pronouns, and then claim they are your pronouns.


Also, saying you want to choose a pronoun that doesn't relate to how you feel is actually joking about individuals lives and mental health which you are trivialising. I personally have never seen anything other than male, female and neutral pronouns. Is it really that hard?

The point I was trying to make was bazza67 was so quick to remove the importance or significance of a brand name(for arguments sake we’ll use ‘coon cheese’), this person commented how ‘it is just a word’ and the relative ease to using a different word, and those who disagree should just get over it,

I was wondering if bazza67 would be as quick to dismiss the significance of someone’s pronouns as also being ‘just a word’, and not something important enough for anyone to listen to or use, and if there was people who disagreed then they should just get over it too.
