Drive-By: Pro Nouns

A way to stomp this ludicrous pronoun nonsense into the ground in virtually one para. Particularly if you are on campus.

What you do is look the student “activist” *spit* in the eye and say, “OK, if this is a valid way forward culturally, all you have to do to prove it is one simple thing: WRITE A BOOK. A novel, a historical non-fiction, a short story of reasonable length, whatever of those, in ANY genre.” (Caveat: Except science fiction, that does NOT count.)

C’mon genius, WRITE SOMETHING! ANYTHING! Write something that even you yourself can read without bursting into giggles at the shear stupidity and insipidness of the final product. You are COLLEGE STUDENTS, aren’t you? Get to work, let’s see what ya got! — Andrew X on True But Forbidden: On Travesty by Lance Morrow

    Great idea! But they won’t “put up” and they certainly won’t SHUT UP.

    If it’s more than 4 or 5 words you will lose them.
    Remember, they are severely mentally handicapped.
    When the infant the next aisle over in the grocery store is screaming uncontrollably do you go try to reason with it?

    Just point it at the head and pull the trigger twice.

    And since English is a nongendered language, write your nongendered book in French or any myriad of other languages that use genders right down to the molecular level. Like Hebrew or Arabic. How do you say Xer in Arabic?

    No matter how you say Xer in Arabic, you’ll only say it once. Then, you’ll be a head shorter.
