Can we just agree that a very large portion of our society has lost its ever-loving mind? Watching news or surfing through social media exposes you to an assortment of crazy people, most of whom are just on the other side of the giggle house.
When the national psychosis first started, it was annoying to have to act like the whackos were just as perfectly normal as everyone else. We accepted them because we didn’t feel it was worth the effort to fight. So they had these little pet peeves and idiosyncrasies that made appear slightly off. So long as they weren’t affecting our lives, everything was okay. Until it wasn’t.
A school teacher raised some eyebrows when she told the world through video how she had to deal with negligently mispronouncing a student’s personal pronouns who changed it from she/her to them/they. Oh, the humanity!
The teacher’s video was shared on the Twitter account “Libs of TikTok” with the tweet text of “This is what teachers are most concerned with[.]”
In her video, the teacher starts to tell her story with what sounds like an exasperated groan while wiping her hand down her face, as if cleansing the insanity that surrounded her before it somehow seeped into her skull.
At first, I didn’t know if she was being facetious. It seemed to be really over the top. But then again, we’re talking about leftists, and to them everything is political and if you’re a teacher who spends 9 hours a day among the mentally disturbed and angry about it, the amount of bullschtein you have to swallow all day must seem like a cleansing detox when you get it all off your chest.
“Guys. I messed up. I messed up,” she sighed. “So, I had a kid on Monday they said their pronouns were she/her. Then on Wednesday, yesterday, they came to me and said, ‘You know what? My pronouns are they/them. I want you and the class to use they/them.’ OK, cool. Great. They come to class today. There’s names on desks in groups for assigned seats. They can’t find theirs because I guess my first class knocked it off. So I go to the class, ‘Hey, is she in anyone’s group? Does anyone see her name?'”
“It took me five minutes to realize what I did,” she conceded. “So, someone asked a question yesterday, ‘What do you do when you mess up?’ Well, we all mess up. So what I did when they were sitting by themselves, I approached them and said ‘I screwed up, didn’t I?’ And they said ‘Yep!’ And I said, ‘I am so sorry. That is completely 100% my fault. I apologize. I will not get it wrong moving forward. Please know I heard you when you told me me your pronouns and I will get it right. That was totally my bad. I apologize.’ So that’s what you do: You own it; you apologize. They were happy that I came over to them, they were disappointed in me. I just saw the look of disappointment, and I was like so disappointed in myself.”
“But we just get better,” she said. “We learn, we grow, we get better, I will not F it up again.”

The way I feel about this is if you want to walk around like a whack job and change your personal pronouns, so long as it doesn’t affect me or anyone else, what the heck do I care? To each his own, right? I start to have a problem when these whack-a-doos start demanding that you call them by their personal pronouns. And many of them say that people who intentionally do not use their personal pronouns are guilty of assault. Assault means that you are put in fear of being harmed. Assault and battery means you’re putting someone in fear of being harmed and somebody harmed you physically.
To claim you fear you are going to be physically harmed because someone called you “she” instead of “they,” “zee,” or “The Incredible Mr. Zee,” or whatever concoction you come up with, makes you a lunatic. These people put a burden on you to remember their personal pronounces, and they get angry when you can’t do it.
It must get really complicated when you’re a schoolteacher and have at least 30% of your classroom using personal pronouns that you now have to remember. And what happens with they change their personal pronouns every other day? This is why this teacher groaned while slapping her hand down the side of her face. Because dealing with freaks like this has got to be maddening. Yet I have no sympathy for her/she/zee/zit/whatever, because she allows it to go on. Students are doing this because they want to have some kind of authority over the teachers. Teachers are the authority figures in classrooms, not grumpy teenagers with an axe to grind against the system. On day one the teacher should have stood at the front of the class and announced that she’s not going to do the whole personal pronoun thing and if you don’t like it, that’s too bad.
The lesson here is the more you allow people like that to invade your freedoms by placing burdens on you to satisfy their mental disorders, the harder it becomes for you to maintain your sanity, and you’re not the crazy one.
