Don’t cater to narcissistic demands
I decided none of the pronouns fit me. I made up my own. At a party, I got very serious and said, well, here is my pronoun, and the room went quiet. "Its an acryonym for Dresses Like a Dude Thinks Like a Biddy, or 'DLADTLAB'. Then I said it, and if you try to say it, its just really funny, not easy to say without some spit forming at the corners of your mouth. Eventually folks realized I was making a joke. Then they laughed. But their seriousness was extrememly funny, for a second.
For sure, too much catering to weirdness based narcissism in people who have figured out they can manipulate and humiliate well-intentioned nice people who prefer to "treat others as they want to be treated" iow practice The Golden Rule, of which these freaks have never heard or if they have, ridicule like they do everything else in polite society. Fortunately, and this is true for me in many of the ways our society has gone off the rails and is sinking in the mire of hedonism, I don't know a single person who is mentally unhealthy or defective who needs to demonstrate that by adopting stupid personal pronouns they insist others also use. If I did know anyone like that, I would not participate in their delusions or manipulation. I would ignore/avoid them by any means necessary.
Advertising their hatred of normalcy and societal conventions by disfiguring themselves with grotesque tattoos, freakish hairstyles in various shades of the rainbow and inserting hardware of all types all over their typically over-fed soft dumpy bodies, which have probably been mutilated because they insist they are the opposite gender, but especially that ring in the nose tells me I am about to or have encountered a psychologically sick and deluded thing, probably in league with Satan, and are already or soon will be a pox upon humanity - far worse than The Cov could ever be.
Or, more likely it is a person in arrested development who was never parented properly and has been "educated" to be as stupid as they look. They are to be pitied and scorned in equal measure. Thank God most of them never reproduce.
Trans people make a big deal of demanding that others use their "preferred" pronoun and if, say, a store clerk looks at a trans person, sees that he is obviously a man, and therefore calls him "sir", they go into a tirade about how they want to be called "ma'am" and demand that the clerk be fired.
The silliness of this is apparent if we think about what would happen if a clerk accidentally called someone who was actually a woman "sir". The obvious answer is, "Probably nothing". The woman would probably ignore it as a trivial mistake. If she did point out the error, then, especially if the woman looked masculine and might indeed be mistaken for a man, the clerk would likely be very embarrassed and stammer apologies. If the woman was very obviously feminine-looking, no one would be offended, probably they'd both laugh at it as a slip of the tongue or the clerk being distracted. Either way, that would be the end of it. It is very unlikely that the woman would demand that the clerk be fired, or that management would fire someone over such a thing.
The ONLY time that it's a big deal if a clerk calls someone by the "wrong" pronoun, is when in fact it's the right pronoun.
I follow God's law: Thou shall not lie. It is very freeing.
My name is Bob and I don't like it when people are referring to me as 'he' when I am in the room. So I've decided that my pronouns are Bob/Bob
