Linguistic Lunacy :) Learn How to Speak “Snowflake”!

Did you ever want to learn a new language? Try your first crack at one, or add another to your linguistic repertoire? Then this is the post for you! Try out the latest innovation in linguistic history: gender neutral pronouns!!! You see, the standard “he” or “she” is outdated, and might offend those who decided to be “non-binary” or “gender-queer” today! After all, who says objective scientific proof of two sexes and genders or the possession of XX or XY sex chromosomes is actually valid for what we feel today, or the next??? Don’t be left behind off the PC bandwagon, climb aboard 🙂

First off, to quell some confusion, we must go over some basic grammar. While other languages, such as Latin, Greek, etc… are highly inflected (or fusional ) languages, which means they have different endings to show things such as case, person, number, etc… etc…, the English language has lost much of its inflected endings, but still retain some for number, (singular vs. plural) and personal pronouns for cases. For example, we say “I” as a subject, in the nominative case, but “me” as the object, or indirect object in the accusative and dative cases respectively. “My” or “mine” are in the genitive case, showing possession. Other pronouns are inflected too similarly in English. Many other languages have a much more intricate, complex and pronounced system of inflections, even for regular nouns (like Greek or Latin for example)! In German, for instance, articles are inflected for case, such as “der” in the nominative, “den” in the accusative, “dem” in the dative, and “des” in the genitive case, all the masculine form of “the”! And that’s not including the feminine and neuter 😉

To sum this up very clearly:

Nominative: Subject of the sentence

Accusative: Object of the sentence

Dative: Indirect object of the sentence

Genitive: Shows possession

(Other languages extend this lunacy to cases not even found in English, like the vocative, for directly addressing someone, and the ablative, among other ones, which no one knows except Latin nerds 😉 )

If all that confusing ACTUAL grammar sounds like a load of linguistic lunacy, hold on to your hats for how to inflect snowflake pronouns! Here are some handy charts to memorize, on pain of offense and being accused of a “microaggression”! The charts also provide various forms of different pronouns to choose from!

First, a NORMAL English pronoun chart!

As we know, common sense, established science, and reason have all “declined” in the radical liberal PC newspeak as well 😉 (Hee hee… grammar joke! Click the link to get the pun!) Better study hard! The next “pop quiz” is encountering one of these loonies! 😉

  1. English is the least complicated language in terms of grammar. I’ve watched people who could only speak English attempt to make sense of the many intricacies of Latin-based languages over and over again. And yes, if they still studied Latin it would pave the way to learning any of these languages more easily.

    Invented pronouns could only work in English (not tot say that they genuinely would work or should be introduced).

    Substantives and adjectives in other European languages, plus the participle of verbs, are gendered as well, which would make the adoption of invented pronouns impossible as it would mess up declination altogether. Surely they wouldn’t use a gender-neutral/invented pronoun in a sentence with a corresponding adjective which must be either masculine or feminine. They would need to make up a new system altogether.

    • True!!! The Hispanic community, some of the radical ones decided having masculine and feminine endings on nouns and in grammatical agreement with adjectives was “sexist” so now if you’re an “other” they use an “X” instead! What lunacy!!! By the way, your comments somehow ended up in my spam folder! I apologize for not getting back to you sooner! Email me at aladyofreason@outlook.com if this continues and I don’t approve your comments within a day! Thanks so much for weighing in!

      • Please don’t worry about that. Thank you for responding.

        OK, so that’s were “Latinx” comes from; I had no idea, though I kept encountering it on feminist websites.

        I must confess I’m a Latin nerd and have studied Latin for quite a few years, and whilst it’s not exactly practical (it’s not spoken anywhere currently but merely studied) it’s very useful when attempting to make sense of other European languages and their gender distinctions. A vast array of terms, ranging from “legalese” to botanic are based on Latin. I found it far easier to learn English than a primarily English-speaking person would find it to learn the main European languages.

        And that is perhaps the reason some English-speaking activists simply don’t understand that the made-up pronouns, should they become an international staple, would mess up the entire grammar of the languages they are introduced into.

  2. I suspect they believe the title wife has implications of ownership and perhaps it has in the Christian sense . For centuries women could own no property and in the marriage service they are instructed to love ,honour and obey their husband’s . I think we can in part blame Christianity for the rise of feminism , suppression always creates a reaction in the long term , the question is can we blame men and hence label them as tyrants ? Even in the days of tribalism men were the stronger and hence the most dominant members , they hunted and fought enemies so surely they cannot be blamed for the way they are made , but the very nature of blame is a tough nut to crack.

  3. You’ve got me reeling since I learnt my grammar on the building site . In those far off days only men worked on those sites and the air was blue with four-letter grammar, the fascinating thing was that if a women ( they were a rare breed) came near the air cleared and we all became rough-coated gentlemen.
    Many years later I learnt that there were ladies who wished to keep their status private and insisted on the MS instead of the Mrs , at first I thought they had plans of flirting with men outside the sanctity of marriage ; what sort of women were they I wondered? In those golden years women mainly wore wedding rings for a man to wear a ring was considered a little effeminate and a ear ring was beyond the pail.
    I use hit and miss grammar , mainly miss , lucky hits sometimes, so language learning has to be the modern method , say after me , which is all the rage in the world of apps.

    • Ah, yes! “Ms.” is indeed used for radical feminists who wish to shun marriage, and the title of wife! The only upside to it is if you’re not sure of a woman’s martial status, it’s an easy way out 😉

      • I hate Ms and try to avoid using it unless I absolutely have to (when I have no idea of a woman’s status.

        If as a married woman you really want to annoy feminists it’s fun to refer to yourself as Mrs (husband’s Christian name) Surname – as was the formal form of address in the past !

      • I know!!! 😉 I feel Ms is just a way for the radical feminist to shun marriage and the idea she belongs to one man! The man hating attitude is rampant! A relative of mine literally told me she doesn’t and only if desperate to fill a position, would she hire men in her new business! This is the attitude many women have now, all while trying to be men in all but name!
