Teen Magazines Launch the Pronoun Wars

Seventeen magazine Executive Editor Joey Bartolomeo announced, "We want Seventeen to be a magazine where all girls feel represented and included, regardless of their sexual identities."
Some of the most aggressive cultural propaganda today is coming from magazines for teenagers. The biggest crusade is about sex (yes, as soon as possible) and gender, where biology is completely negotiable, and incorrect or bizarre pronouns are nonnegotiable.

Teen Vogue Digital Editorial Director Phil Picardi declared: "For the past year or so, we've made a concerted effort to limit (and, eventually, banish) heteronormativity from all of our content ... we use gender neutral pronouns in almost all contexts. Our readers have appreciated the shift, and often help police our language."

Likewise, Seventeen magazine Executive Editor Joey Bartolomeo announced, "We want Seventeen to be a magazine where all girls feel represented and included, regardless of their sexual identities." The new orthodoxy was installed when the magazine posted a video on June 26 headlined "Trans Students Explain Why Pronouns Are Important."

First, a girl named Leah Juliett announces, "Just because I present more femme, doesn't mean I'm any less they/them." Another girl with the name C Mandler — let's guess that using a period after C is a troglodyte move — recounts telling her family over snacks: "Hey, guys. I'm non-binary. I don't have a gender."

Then the Facebook video stops — for an ad break. Who says these propaganda lessons for children can't make a few bucks on the side? The advertisers included Hewlett-Packard, New York Life and WP Engine.

This is an "education" campaign Seventeen organized with GLAAD, and C Mandler is a GLAAD campus ambassador.

Juliett explains gender deconstruction in astrological terms: "In my opinion, gender is a universe. It is a broad spectrum of planets and stars and sky that truly cannot be contained into a binary. ... So when someone identifies with a pronoun, they're essentially taking their little piece of that broad universe and identifying with that." By using the "correct pronouns," you are "validating that yes, you are right in your identity, and you are important, and we are respecting you."

Validation of this nonsense is mandatory. Gender identity can change on a whim, but it must be deeply honored at all times. The transgender and "genderqueer" humans seem to live in a higher universe, a self-selected class of victims of pronoun-abusing "society."

Mandler continues the tale of snack time with family. She proclaims: "My pronouns are they, them, theirs, and that's a nonnegotiable, and they were all kind of like, 'OK.' ... I know, personally, when I get misgendered by strangers, it's one thing, but it's especially painful when it's people who are close to you. So when my parents misgender me, it's a knife in my heart because they're the people whose opinions matter more to me than anybody else's."

Obviously, the family's opinions do not matter. Only her opinion matters, and only validation is acceptable. She cannot imagine the possibility that parents who brought home a baby daughter might feel pain at this rejection of biology.

Juliett even takes exception to the term "preferred pronouns." They're not a preference; they're like a vital organ! She says: "It's also not a preference; it's who they are. You need to use those pronouns! It's literally an extension of my arm or my leg. It's just as much a part of me as a vital organ. My identity, although you can't see it, still needs to be validated just as much as you would validate the fact that I have five fingers or five toes."

The last metaphor the gender deniers should use is body parts to suggest that their pronouns are as defining as fingers and toes ... or breasts and genitals.

In case you missed it, Spurwing and BoP are one in the same. One is the sockpuppet of the other.

It is sad that in order to try and make it appear that more people agree with his lack of thinking and logic as seen through horrific spelling and grammar, BoP invented another person (Spurwing) to "play with."

BoP has never made a cognitive argument and all he has are insults and imaginary friends.

If he insults you, that means that 1) you are most likely right and 2) he is displaying his lack of intelligence again.

Pure, unabashed narcissism. "I am so special that the world doesn't fit me! I am so wonderfully different that YOUR language is too small to contain me!"

Complete and utter bullshit.

Guess what the laws of biology say? There are male genes and there are female genes. Anything else is psychological. I am sick of this identity bullshit.

Stymphalian Bird (AKA Spurwing and BoP,):

So there you have it.

This guy has once again confirmed he is a liberal. He gets offended when other debate him like a snowflake does and is dumb as a rock.

The "Bird Gang" is liberal to the core.

People who profess this kind of asinine stupidity aren't worth your time or consideration. Cut these insane weirdos loose, you're only going to find increased aggravation and malignant narcissism with them.

I'm with everyone here except Anon 12:06, 6:46.. What's your major malfunction? Chasing an individual around the web to vilify so you can satisfy your childish need to bully from afar tells everyone you've never had control of anything in your life - probably your bowels because they're attached to your face. Fix it or feck off ya oxygen thief.

Back to our regular entertainment..

No Leah Juliett & C Mandler.. You're NOT non-binary, non-gender or whatever your immature Leftard friends want you to say you are simply to be allowed to hang with them and communicate in their language "..and like, yeah.. like.."..

You're an immature little GIRL just like them because your narcissistic "look at moi!" arm-flailing shows you have no knowledge of what you're doing and the tampons in your purse give you away and prove you are only one of two TRUE genders.

You cry about black segregation generations ago but now you, your idiotic desire to lie and Seventeen magazine are happily facilitating segregation of society again by demanding non-binary (or something describing the now 847 pronouns and counting) toilets. Soon it'll be restaurants, medical centres, bus seating etc., ALL OVER AGAIN! Hypocrite.

It's likely you force this view upon all of us so you can complain at whatever someone apparently misidentifies you as - EVERY TIME! I could imagine the vexatious lawsuits
from drama queens such as yourself cramming the courts because of your narcissistic immaturity.

When you're stared at or molested in your non-binary toilet by a self-identifying non-binary with a pee-pee, would you feel safer in the proper girl's toilet?

Would it still be classified as rape?

What if that non-binary has no pee-pee like yourself? I'm sure she/shim/unclassified automatically thought you were like-minded and ready to go for it anytime?

Grow up.
