A few days ago we took our daughter to a local natural history museum. Unlike the previous years, staffers were wearing pronoun buttons.
Not all staffers wore the pronoun buttons About half did and those who did invariably wore he/his and they/them or she/her and they/them buttons.
For those not too familiar with the current woke sexual identity cult, this is the mark of posers.
Rather than embracing some sort of alternative gender setup, they’re roleplaying by combining the usual male and female pronouns with something that suggests they’re in some way ‘non-binary’ or more importantly ‘non-cis’.
The combination of he/him and ‘they/them’ is used by some people who are experimenting or believe that they’re male or female, but not ‘all that’ male or female.
But it’s also a very convenient way for regular white people (and these were all regular white people) to claim minority status without making any real commitment. It’s as if you could somewhat claim racial minority status without having to go to the trouble of doing your hair in braids and making up a past as a descendant of Cherokee Indians.
Being a cis white male is the worst possible thing. A white cis female is the second worst possible thing.
Cis is a sexual identity politics slur which means normal. Adding ‘they/them’ to your repertoire immediately makes ordinary white people into quasi minorities who are no longer ‘cis’ and can throw tantrums and play victims. At least until the trans and non-binaries start denouncing them for roleplaying sexual minorities.
(This is already underway.)
Seeing the phenomenon in the wild was interesting. And when you see numbers like 40% of a university’s students identifying as LGBTQ, this is a big part of what’s really going on. Most of these people aren’t getting body parts chopped off, they’re just adding a they/them pronoun and claiming that they don’t really feel invested in masculinity or feminity. Then they get jobs, get married, and live semi-normal lives.
