But English Doesn’t HAVE Gender-Neutral Pronouns!

A person in Oregon named Valeria Jones is suing catering company Bon Appétit Management for $518,682 because coworkers used female names in reference to Jones despite the fact that Jones had continually expressed the desire to be addressed only with gender-neutral pronouns.

So… any complaints over the paycheck being in dollars instead of being currency-neutral?

  1. from the article:

    “The specific breakdown of the damages Jones seeks in the lawsuit is $18,682 in lost wages and benefits and $500,000 for pronoun pain and humiliation.”

    who has the sense of humor?

  2. As soon as the judge heard this, “Also unclear is which gender pronouns the special and unique litigant sought to be called.” The case should have been dismissed. Frankly if you don’t know what to call yourself it can’t be expected that anyone else is doing anything more than guessing anyway.

  3. With a name like Valeria, I’m surprised there weren’t more references to, “to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.”

    The men of Bon Appétit Management need a seminar in manliness.

  4. “The men of Bon Appétit Management need a seminar in manliness.”

    Men? Working at a place called “Bon Appetit”? Really?

    Few men, unless acquiescing to the insistent pleadings of their wives or meeting a lady for a bit of Gallic dining, would eagerly patronize such a place.

    The incident did occur in Oregon, where shrill, tenor-voiced, wrist-flapping, gender-questioning oddities vastly outnumber real men and proves my point.
