~ ITEM: Fall 2015– University of Tennessee tells staff and students to stop using ‘he’ and ‘she’ – and switch to ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead; .. or, it didn’t, but
got caught going all Orwell floated a trial balloon?

TRY AND SAY what you mean, and mean what you say. It’s a basic principle of communication, relationships, and civilization itself.
Of course, if you’re a revolting schemer trying to break & steal all the things, and hurt people, why then it’s most helpful to not actually mean what you say, and to never say (out loud to your enemy) exactly what you really mean. It’s all part of the intellectual camouflage, you see; the ‘revolutionary subterfuge’ (useful lying).
People who agree with Political Correctness tend to dislike facts versus feelings and general impressions; and Correctoids don’t want to call things what they are in plain communicative language, to conceal who or what we are talking about.
From gender pronouns, to men and women to people who live here, and people who came here unlawfully, it’s thought-control to influence what and how people think, politically. It also helps if you don’t talk about real people, or yourself, but in broad anonymous classes, or society-wide forms of ‘oppression’, or discrimination’, or ‘privilege’.
Ultimately, Political Correctness is literally seeking to erase certain words & thoughts, or to so change their meanings that the old thoughts and categories are impossible. So a feminist will not talk about Bob, but accuse all men ever everywhere of sexism, racism, rapism, and general monsterness via ‘toxic masculinity’. Such folks won’t address real statistics, or that ‘Sue got raped’ as much as ‘we have a rape culture’; they won’t say ‘this study argues that…’ but ‘Everybody knows…’.
These vague and anonymous generalities and sweeping accusations are most awesome of all! The morally superior have found out all the bad things, such as YOU, dirty privileged sexist scum man!
A New Binks Subscription
As I surf the intertube, I’ll often find new YouTube channels, and see what’s up. I’ve just stumbled across a young man pseudonomously called ‘Vernaculis‘ who is sure to cause strokes, apoplexies, fits & tantrums in any politically correctoid, feminist, or Social Justice Warrior Marxist who even dares watch and think about one of his (so far) excellent vids.
“Feminism IS the Patriarchy..”
Vern argues that the horrible sinister toxic widespread oppression going on in our modern society? Well, Feminism itself, or, as he so startlingly puts it, “Feminism IS the Patriarchy” [vid– 8:30 forward]. We have met the enemy, and she is us. Stick that in your soup and smoke it.
Try him out, subscribe if you like his stuff. I particularly appreciate his love of words and language, precision in logical arguments, and his joy in
patiently demolishing BS unpacking progressive weasel words line by line.
He’s a smart, insightful, wry & dry-humoured word-artist, I promise. ~
