If somebody can self identify as aboriginal in order to take advantage of the Gladeau factor….Then it would only be fair that Pgs can self identify as a cowboy you’d think?I think it's cute how people do the "I identify as a helicopter" or "I identify as a Pirate" or whatever bullshit, as if it negates the point of things.
If you want to ID as any of that, fill your boots, who the hell are others to give a damn?
Not that gender is equal to a spontaneous feeling of suddenly wanting to be a helicopter or pirate or anything. But the ignorant keep claiming that they're somehow equal.
Funny how you comment about not being militant about people not calling you Doctor or Captain; but talk to a REAL doctor, for example, and don't call them that, and watch them get pissed.
If pronouns don't matter, then why should we bother with them at all? Well, language and grammar sort of demands it. So guess we're stuck with it.
But if someone doesn't want to be respectful and use someone's proper pronouns, don't expect others to either.
