Elizabeth Warren is so woke she added her preferred pronouns (she/hers) to her Twitter bio back in July, so she can be excused if she doesn’t make a big deal out of #InternationalPronounsDay. Julián Castro obviously felt a little something more was needed and even released a little video showing his preferred pronouns: he, him, and él.
Using someone’s correct pronouns—and giving your own—isn’t difficult.
I’m Julián Castro, he/him/él.
It takes one extra breath to help people feel seen and respected. I think that’s worth it. #PronounsDay pic.twitter.com/02v65k3HXx

Someone reminded us that it really is hard for some people, and can trigger anxiety or dysphoria. I’m grateful to learn how to be more inclusive of people all genders.

And we’re grateful you’ll never be president, and not because of this.
I'm Julián Castro, pander/pandering/panders

Sorry, but ego-padding & pandering to the narcissism of small differences will be the end of our society & I refuse to participate. It enables people to feel that everyone/thing must pander to their own preferences. That's not how the world works. https://t.co/Fc4BpllG0s

I am a male.

Honestly — and I do mean this honestly — I think transgender people should be upset that Julian Castro is co-opting the concept of pronouns as a place to express an affinity (Spanish/Hispanic) rather than gender.
If "pronouns" just becomes a mini-biography, it's just a joke. https://t.co/xwoO0v2z7J

6 Democratic candidates for US president now list their preferred gender pronouns in their Twitter bios and are enthusiastically celebrating International Pronouns Day….I would start putting serious money on Donald Trump remaining US president in 2020 #PronounsDay https://t.co/21dko7l2Dp

A quick check shows that Beto O’Rourke, Andrew Yang, Amy Klobuchar, and Joe Biden are among the offenders who haven’t listed their preferred pronouns, and as we’ve been told, that’s transphobic.

It takes my dying breath (or that of the person trying to compel my speech) to refuse to kowtow to cultural and societal (and political) communism. And your pronouns are hijo de puta cabrón Julián. De nada¡#PronounsDay https://t.co/gM95NpJf74

This won't help you, youre appealing to a very small amount of ppl that buy into this stuff, and alienating the great majority that finds this unimportant and silly. Talk policy: economics, immigration, healthcare. Anyone destroyed by pronoun usage has bigger problems im guessing
— Angry Frijolero (@tweetermadman) October 16, 2019
Trump ignores all this nonsense – or makes a joke of it – and instead cuts to the stuff that matters. So many politicians completely ignore all the real issues and just prattle on about garbage like this instead.

Life is pretty damn good if we're at this level of grievance.

I suspect the validity of this new regime will be sorely tested when someone, for example, tries to write a book or fill out a police report using this modified language. ?

People can use whatever pronouns they want. But they've got no right to insist that other people go along with it.

Please change #PronounsDay to #WordDay to promote greater language inclusivity.

If you think you don’t need to put your preferred pronouns in your bio, that’s transphobia https://t.co/anxwHvGYGk
