By doing this are they doing what everyone else does? I have never heard anyone during the course of my day/work/family/ travels mention pronouns when introducing themselves or in general chat or maybe I'm not a trendy professional living in the big city type and im too "provincial" to understand? Perhaps by saying what she said she's saying "Look at me, I'm being soooo 21st Century and on trend"
Sorry I thought you'd seen Spoonzy's clarification. I meant everyone at that table had likely did the same.

I'm waaaay too provincial for pronouns and stuff like that. I see a few on email signatures and that's it. But it's no different to that awkward "I'm AU and I like football, porn and farting" chat you have when you do some training or something at work and have to introduce yourself. In fact, I think saying my pronouns might actually work better in my case.

I do think there are more important things in the world at the moment, Putin and Xi must be laughing their heads off.

On the subject of pronouns, at least Harris could pronounce them, unlike Sleepy here...


Imagine if Trump had done that!

Trump's Florida home raided by the FBI overnight.
Measures to make Trump accountable - good.
Trump's base being encouraged to fetishise gun rights and assault rifles, Trump supporting police chiefs and fears of the Q Anon 'deep state' bogeyman - not so good.

Trumpys going down, he's going down, he's going, Trumpys going down......

....Lock him up! Lock him up!

Sad!*

*well not really sad, in fact hilarious. Trumpty dumb-ty though he was being oh so clever, genius, proving he has the smartest brain when he decided to work the aptly described deplorables into a frothing mess with his demagogic faux rage regarding vague allegations about Hillary's data control. To now be in serious shit about a similar issue himself is delicious. :D:D:D

Hopefully little Nige does remain a person of interest.
