Should the word Mother be replaced with Birthing Person?   The Serious You: How Current Events Affect You

I do too, and that is why I don't like discussing it, some forums, oh my gosh, I couldn't exit the fast enough LOL  It's a shame people are like that, it's their way or else.

You won’t be alone It’s almost impossible to change the language for everyone, even if they are on board.  People slip up. I have a friend whose son became a woman. His mother was fine with it but can’t remember the new name or the right pronoun.  She wants to but she can’t.

That is why some people don’t post here anymore.  A few kept pushing it and lost privileges.  A long as they are polite, they can post, but once the attacks became personal, no.  I’ve never run a political forum before and I don’t want to now.

I can understand, some things are very hard to change even if one wants to.

Good for you. I'll talk politics only with those I know won't come unglued if I say something they disagree with. I don't go to political forums anymore, haven't for a long time.

As an example, if they changed the name for chocolate, would we be able to learn a new name?  No!

You can post here.  We don’t fight much. Maybe some halfhearted arguments, but that’s it.

Nope! For me it's always going to be chocolate.  No way!

I was so stressed by the election and then the insurrection, I try to avoid it as much as possible, and our Arizona politicans sure don't help lol.

Showtalk said...

It’s ironic that freedom of speech only applies if you use the new terms.

Yep... the double standard! Practiced quite well by the liberals of this country.

The rules are for thee... not for me!!!

FWIW
