one response was "Do pronouns again!"  LMFAO.  The world will soon be taken over by a bunch of mindless, feel-good, twits.

I mean, this is the same generation that believes fighting for Bruce Jenner's right to use the ladies' room puts them on the same plane with MLK and Ghandi, and that anyone who would oppose them on this is "literally Hitler".

The ban on straws is stupid,but I am okay with the ban on Styrofoam.  It's not recyclable and is really nasty stuff, and it's really not needed as there are good alternates.

The ban on plastic straws is stupid.  The straws are recyclable.  The issue is not that the straws exist, but that they are not being disposed of properly.  And the US is not really contributing to that problem, it's countries like China.  

As for the pronouns, y'all do know the Legislature de-funded the office that did that, right?

https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/politics/2016/04/18/house-votes-strip-university-tennessee-diversity-funding/83182522/  

Funding has been restored, but restrictions remain:

https://www.knoxnews.com/story/news/education/2017/05/25/diversity-funding-comes-b/338694001/

The law also stipulated that the university is not to spend state funds "to promote the use of gender-neutral pronouns, to promote or inhibit the celebration of religious holidays, or to fund or support Sex Week."

That part of the law is still in effect, even though the funding has come back.


So....do y'all feel a bit better now?

ya know, some may say your quote here is an over-exaggeration, but it isn't EVEN an exaggeration.  So sad.  And yeah, I am clutching my pearls, because it is so sad...

Yes, but in fairness, it's only a very vocal minority saying the stupid things BDV has stated.   They should be shouted down very loudly IMO, because they are idjuts.

I think treating transgendered folks decently is very important - as it is important for any human being - but trying to force some of the stupid government "solutions" for a group that constitutes 0.2-03.% of the population is the problem.

And let me say that while every human being needs to be treated with basic dignity and respect, bammer fans are sub-human of course.
