A California state Senate committee on Thursday banned the words “he” and “she” during hearings. It shows how far the politically-correct mob is willing to go in terms of policing language.
The first order of business at last Thursday's hearing was to approve the new committee rules, during which the Democrat senator said the 'gender neutral' designation 'they' would be replacing the traditional pronouns of 'he' or 'she'.
Democratic state Senate Judiciary Chair Hannah-Beth Jackson spoke about the change on Thursday, which affects her committee, and said it’s a matter of gender.
“We are now a state recognizing the nonbinary designation as a gender,” Jackson said. “We are using the phrase ‘they’ and replacing other designations so that it’s a gender-neutral designation of ‘they.’ Basically, that’s the primary reforms and revisions to the committee rules.”
Jackson was a victim of her own rules, however, when she referred to her old grammar teacher as a “her” instead of “them.”
“We are using what my grammar teacher would have heart attack over. We are using the phrase ‘they.’ My grammar teacher’s long gone. And I won’t be hearing from her. If any of you—”
She was cut off mid-sentence from several people in the audience who corrected her and insisted she use the words “them” or “they.” She quickly corrected herself.
They now want to control not just hateful language and racist language, which we all agree is a not a good thing, but everyday speech. ‘ He’ and ‘she.’
These are words that people use all the time in everyday conversation to describe men and women. They (leftists) want to dig down so far into how we speak, and ultimately into how we think, that they are willing to ban the most common words in the English language. Or invent new ones…
Such as a Seventh-day Adventist division president recently using the term bristers as a gender-neutral amalgamation of brothers & sisters.
Some of us will do that believing in Women’s Ordination, some will do that not believing. I’m appealing to all of us, let’s touch each other, let’s work into each other’s hearts. We are brethren, or we are the bristers, you know? You know what a brister is? That’s a combination of a brother and a sister. We are the bristers —Dan Jackson, November 5, 2018.
We expect this gender confusion from a sin-sick world warring against God’s distinctions; we are dismayed to see it manifested in the Body of Christ—the Remnant.
But back to California. At the start of the year, California introduced a third 'X' gender category on state identification cards and driver's licenses. The 'X' marker can be used by California state residents who do not identify as male or female. Oregon, New York and Washington state also offer the 'X' marker on official IDs.
It’s a crazy world, friends.
