State Department Celebrates International Pronoun Day

Report: State Department celebrates International Pronoun Day.

The State Department is not resting on its laurels. It is not vacationing to recover from its exertions in orchestrating our bumbling debacle in completely and suddenly withdrawing from Afghanistan. No, our professional diplomats are reinforcing their resolve to use the proper pronouns in referring to people of uncertain gender, surely a vital factor in achieving a peaceful world.

But why stop there? We look forward to celebrating these days:

• International Noun Day, when we use the correct term for governments. For example, the China government should be called a regime. President Xi should be called Chairman Xi, because the regime uses the same Chinese word it used for Chairman Mao. Calling him “president” implies a democratic, open election. Nothing could be further from the truth.

• International Adjective Day, when we use accurate descriptors for what we see in the world. If we did this, we would find extensive use for words like brutal, cruel, sadistic, racist, totalitarian, oppressive, dictatorial, and inhumane.

• International Verb Day,when diplomats would interrupt their incessant blather and actually do things rather than merely talk and theorize. Admittedly, this would be something new and unfamiliar for the Ivy League academics and bloviators who tend to gravitate to the State Department. But who knows? They might learn to like being in the real world. After all, it’s the only world that actually exists, so they might as well get used to it.
