New Pronouns

I recently applied to my county sheriff for a document showing my lack of felony convictions and “good moral character.”  No kidding, that’s what the certificate says.

The document has changed since I last got one.  It now includes a sentence with the phrase…”his, her or their…”  I guess they’re just trying to cover all their gender-bending possibilities.

The University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee LGBT Resource Center has created documents to help, including this advice in the FAQ section:

It’s okay! Everyone slips up from time to time. The best thing to do if you use the wrong pronoun for someone is to say something right away, like “Sorry, I meant she.” If you realize your mistake after the fact, apologize in private and move on.

I have no earthly clue what this chart is supposed to say except, this is a strange, new world.

    My preferred personal pronoun is “jfhwodmsplketio,” and it’s pronounced exactly how you would expect. And if you mess it up you’re a racist, sexist, misandrist shitweasel.

    I thought we were supposed to refer to Paul Krendler as “His Majesty, by the Grace of SMOD (may SMOD visit us soon), King of R’lyeh and other lesser nations, Head of the Zombie Horde, Chief Antagonist of the Cowards, and Supreme Nightmare of the Elkridge Horror”.

    Peace be unto him…
