So the Associated Press has issued a new manual of style that exhorts journalists to avoid any language that suggests there are two genders.  Because as we all know, the true count is 60-something.

I hate these people.  Sick of them.  Want them gone.  Don't care how.

There are two, as God and nature designed...normals and deviants, and this is a simple pass/fail test.

Just like there are two kinds of people - intelligent and moronic.

And in real life style doesn't count for sh*t compared to substance.

Nature will settle it and reassert its dominance, as always.

And to be even more of a stickler for reality, people do not have a gender. Words have a gender. People have a sex, and there are two of them. Sex is determined by genetics, not muh feelz. There is an exceptionally tiny number of people who suffer from genetic disorders that make them inconclusively one or the other, but they aren't the ones pushing this social engineering.

27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. 28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,

Romans 1: 27-29

...looking forward to "the penalty of their error" coming due!  ::popcorn::
2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power & of love and of calm, a well-balanced mind, discipline and self-control.

Thank you, thank you; I keep saying just that.

Thanks, the obvious is often skimmed over in the heat of battle.   ::thumbsup::

"muh feelz"  Heh, dang if that is good sarcasm right there!    :D

And good catch on the disorder point, they get sucked along on the current of the SJW terror river ride.

Reality imitating art that imitated the worst of history preceding it...and instead of heeding the warning they use it as another training manual...
