NOM affiliate Jennifer Roback Morse: Gonna save NY, one gendered pronoun at a time

by Jeremy Hooper

So first off: Kitty Lambert is only 54, Cheryle Rudd a mere 53. So considering Jennifer Roback Morse is a 1971 high school graduate, I'd expect her to be a little more judicious and/or sensitive with her "old women" labels.

But that out of the way: You gotta laugh at Ms. Morse's plan to change the world via gendered language:


[SOURCE: Issues Etc. -- 7/27/11]

It's always interesting to hear these social conservatives act like being LGBT means disregarding gender altogether. If that were the case, wouldn't we basically just be the B community, with either gender being a possible and equally balanced option for sexual attraction and transitioning an irrelevant notion, since it's all the same anyhow? I mean isn't our recognition of gender, along with the fight for acceptance of the full range of biological realities thereof, pretty much the reason why we're even having this conversation? And isn't this true even for those who might look at the gender labels and definitions we have in this world and determine that none of them are able summations of what they think, feel, or who they truly are, since it takes recognition of a paradigm for one to know ze finds it limited?

But I digress. Ms. Morse, you just keep using whatever language you like. I, like most New Yorkers, will keep relying on the language of the law.
