The End of "He" and "She" As Ze Training Spreads Through Schools, Military

Reminiscent of the 'droid-speak' of Star Wars, those trying to undermine the traditional ideas of gender roles are trying, once again, to replace the pronouns "he" and "she" with wild fabrications they deem to be gender neutral words.
No longer an abstract academic exercise for linguists, policies mandating the use of the pronouns 'ze' and 'hir' (which rhymes with here) are being adopted in schools, workplaces and the military, often with consequences for those who refuse to comply with the changes.
Linguists label these alien dialogue words as open-class or closed-class, and the distinction is key here. Nouns, adjectives and verbs are all open- class words.
A hundred years ago, we didn't have the noun "blog", the verb "google" or use the adjective "cool" in the same sense we do now. But English allows new open-class words to be added, subtracted or replaced as needed.
We adapt to the changes just like changing light bulbs in a house. If started early enough, removing gendered nouns such as "boys" or "girls" from common usage can impact how we see the world, as gender activists are well-aware in Britain.
A new guidebook for teachers, accompanied by a training manual which has cost the government £200k to provide, teaches children as young as seven that not only are gendered pronouns a form of discrimination but also the words boy, girl, ladies, gentlemen and other completely normal nouns, as well.
The book titled Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity features a 12-year-old girl who is "transitioning" to be a boy with the help of hormones.
Meant to be used in primary and middle-schools in Britain, the book teaches children that using the words "boys" or "girls" excludes those who are transgender and reinforces the obvious idea that there are behavioral differences between the sexes, a fact that gender extremists are trying hard to deny.
Pronouns, prepositions and articles on the other hand are so common and basic in the structure of the language that they resist change. These are closed-class words.
To alter such pronouns, a fundamental cognitive shift must take place; an entirely changed mindset. Rather than simply adding on a new concept, linguists tell us that replacing closed-class words essentially rewires the language centers of the brain.
It is at this fundamental level that gender activists now seek to impose such a change of belief on the rest of society through language.
Oxford University is among the list of universities now pushing for the use of ze (he/she) and hir (him/her). The Oxford University Student Union has issued guidelines for use of ze and hir to avoid offending transgendered students and many have expressed the hope that the pronouns will be adopted by professors in lectures and seminars.
Regardless of whether they are adopted by the teaching faculty, the Oxford University behavior code defines the use of the wrong gendered pronoun (i.e. the one they don't prefer) to a transgendered person as an official offense.
Some professors, both in the UK and Canada have reported harassment after refusing to adopt ze/hir in their lectures. Jordan Peterson, a Canadian lecturer, was both heckled and had his office door glued shut in retaliation for his continued use of traditional pronouns.
In the United States, the District of Columbia Human Resources office has issued recent guidelines that make it a fineable offense to use pronouns not "aligned with a person's gender identity" and it goes on to advise the use of ze and hir as 'best practice' in the workplace.
The continued instance on he and she, those nasty gendered pronouns, can even result in criminal charges for creating a "hostile work environment", according to the regulations. The included chart even contains example phrases such as "Ze smiled" and "I met hir".
Bear in mind, the objective is no so much that workers should understand how the government wants them to speak, but how they must think. No word yet on whether the government will open re-education camps for those who have trouble complying.
Not to be left behind or outdone in this race to moral insanity, the New York City Commission on Human Rights, the has mandated that landlords and employers who refuse to adopt the preferred pronouns of their employees or tenants, including the use of ze/hir, will be subject to fines of up to $250,000. The preference for "non-binary" gender roles is all the rage in the Big Apple, it would seem.
Even the military has caught non-binary fever with the Naval Academy instituting a Transgender 101 training course for midshipmen. Those who attend the course will be given cards to put on their doors that identify the room as a "safe space" and that those sailors are "allies".
It isn't hard to see how allowing sailors to change their gender, use their preferred bathroom and adopting ze/hir pronouns in official publications is all part of a campaign to undermine traditional gender roles.
In government offices, universities, elementary schools, workplaces and even the military, the transgender movement is invading both our culture and language like a deadly virus.
What we see happening is simply an extension of the concept of 'deconstruction' which seeks to overturn our historical way of thinking by a fundamental change in the normalcy of language.
By changing the very language of discourse, the ulterior motive of gender radicals is to redefine morality and rewire our brains, and if the success of the past five years proves anything, they are accomplishing their goal.
Grammar texts are about to undergo a seismic shift as they are re-written in favor of ze, hir, and all the rest of the anti-gender gobbledygook soon to infect the culture.
