A Democratic strategist and New York Times contributor was mocked online after posting that male conservatives care more about pronouns than any “leftist or trans person” she knew.
Strategist Elizabeth Spiers wrote a Tweet reading simply, “White male conservatives care more about pronouns than any leftist or trans person I know. It’s truly unhinged.”
If you want to read the original thread, I’d grab some popcorn, because you could be there awhile. We’ll just give you some of the highlights.
“You can get permanently banned from this platform for using the ‘wrong’ pronouns — but ‘white male conservatives’ are the ones who are unhinged and obsessed? Huh?” responded Mark Hemingway, Senior Writer at RealClearInvestigations.
“I mean, deadnaming gets you banned from Twitter. Sounds like someone on the left cares,” responded Podcast host Noah Blum.
“You will literally get banned from this website for misusing pronouns,” replied Jonathan Levine of the New York Post.
“If you don’t really care then what’s the problem with us getting them wrong?” responded one popular comment.
“Why point out just the males? Female white conservatives are laughing at you, too.” replied another.
“I don’t have gender pronouns in my Twitter bio. You do. So who ‘cares more’ about pronouns — the person who’s simply not using them, or the person who’s virtue-signaling with them?” replied author Geoffrey Miller.
“Never saw a conservative try to get someone fired for using the wrong one…” said another.
“I see we’re attempting the ‘Akshully we’re not the ones who care that much about pronouns’ shift in real time,” wrote podcast host Steven L. Miller.
Well, there’s only one thing left to say, I suppose.
Pronouns in Bio.
