Who decides if you’re animal vegetable or mineral?

None of this can work unless everyone carefully changes the meaning of core words, and why should we agree to do that in such a fatuous delusional cause?

The Guardian solemnly explains about these genius new young people who think you can change material reality by changing the vocabulary.

Who decides your gender?

Don’t be silly. You mean “sex,” and no one decides. The question makes no more sense than “Who decides your species?”

A growing number of kids say it is up to them – and are rejecting the traditional markers of “male” or “female” in favor of identifying as “genderqueer”, which refers to people who don’t fall squarely within the gender binary. Stars like Indya Moore have come out as non-binary and use they/them pronouns, and non-binary characters are increasingly featured in breakout TV shows, such as Asia Kate Dillon’s role in Billions.

Don’t be silly. You mean a growing number of kids are confused about what is material reality and what is human convention. If you can’t grasp that distinction then nothing you say is going to make any sense…and of course that’s how the rest of the article goes.

Yet non-binary kids say they are widely misunderstood, and they face prejudice. Donald Trump, for instance, recently decreed that protections against healthcare discrimination were to be applied based exclusively on biology rather than one’s inner sense of gender.

Meaning…what? Healthcare should be based on “one’s inner sense of gender” and not on biology? So boys should get pap smears if their “inner sense of gender” tells them they are girls? You might want to warn them that that will hurt.

After that there’s a lot of self-obsessed drivel from four of these enthralling “non-binary” kids. I don’t recommend it.
