Everyone here has, at one point or another, experienced a very insidious form of weaponized idpol: that it's politically incorrect to call a man a man and a woman a woman, and that one ought to refer to a stranger as "they/them" until the person being addressed volunteers a preferred pronoun.

What is the main argument for "they/them" as a singular pronoun

– that is the use of "you" as a plural and singular pronoun both –

"you" originally referred to a group of people OR a single elite

Very simply, we must refer to individuals who are Proletarian using the term "thou" which was, at one point in time, a politically incorrect form of address. ( In fact, it was SJWs who eradicated thou from our lexicon.) This is similar to how the queers reclaimed the word queer. Using the term "Thou" to refer to a fellow proletariat is a double-blow against the radical liberals in our movement : it is a class-aware pronoun with historical support and thus is an infinitely more accessible linguistic construct than "ally" or "comrade" to refer to the in group, and it is a subtle affront against the tricksters trying to pervert everyone into becoming a "them"

What you mean is, everyone here has seen a tweet of someone saying this.

I hope that person isn't seriously thinking of punching anything with that. That's not at all how knuckle guards work.

That has never happened to me before. It is one of the perks to being old.

OP wants us to call each other" thou", as it was used as a familiarity to address non elites, in order to strike a blow against IDpol and political correctness.

It's unbelievable the drivel that gets posted on here sometimes.

It's like something I read in an old American punk fanzine about some punks meeting up in a mcdonalds because they thought working class people eat there, so we'll go there. (I eat at McDs too but it's a bad habit.I'm due to get a loyalty bonus from uber on Saturday, When it comes through I'm going to buy a cast iron frying pan and kitchen eqpt., start work a bit later, and cook myself a fry up every morning. No more mcRopeys.)

Anyway "they" and "them" for a singular person you don't know the gender of has been used for a long time. http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/002748.html

Let's be honest: English is a shit language that nobody in their right mind would have used if not for imperialism.

Probably not us natives, either.

At the risk of setting the NazBols and Strasserites off, I've done some study in semitic languages. They're enjoyable to study. They're based on roots and patterns. You have a (normally) three letter consonant root, which gives the general subject of the word. Then you have a pattern of other letters which you slot in to it, to give the word it's specific meaning.

And learning a new language, it's weird but you become able to think new things. It's like things aren't 100% translatable into other languages. It's like some words in one language fall in the gaps in other languages. (… Maybe that's why we have "loan words" from other languages.)

I think it should be clear a lot them don't agree with this reclamation.
