And this is the type of person that gets to be Chief of Police? Seriously? With reasoning ability like that shown here this person should be in a hospital herself. This is not an adult, this is a child, and not much of one at that since even small children know the difference between a boy and a girl. This is a maladjusted, performance trophy fool who lives in a fantasy world except that she has somehow been given the power to punish those who live the real world.
And who came up with the brilliant idea of “international pronouns day”? What genius is behind that lunacy and how many other fools thought it was such a good idea that they were actually able to get it on the calendar? Both these situations really speak to the larger of problem of the mental state and ability of those who seek positions in “do nothing but make problems worse” jobs that you cannot be fired from.
British Chief Of Police Warns “Misgendering” People Is A Form Of “Abuse”
A chief of police in Britain chose to recognize “international pronouns day” by putting out a video warning people that misgendering transgender people was a form of “abuse.”
“Today is international pronouns day,” said Detective Chief Constable Julie Cooke in a video posted to Twitter. “Which is a day particularly important to people who identify as transgender or gender nonconforming.”
“Being misgendered can have a huge impact on somebody and their personal well being, it also can be used as a form of abuse for somebody and that just isn’t right,” she added.

“Today is about raising awareness, getting people to have conversations, and understanding why it is so important to understand the pronouns that somebody wishes to be used for them,” concluded Cooke.
The warning is no idle threat. Numerous people in the United Kingdom have been arrested for alleged “transphobia.”
Earlier this year, a 38-year-old woman was arrested in front of her own children and locked up for 7 hours after referring to a transgender woman as a man online.
A man was also interrogated for 30 minutes by police for liking a limerick on Twitter (he didn’t even write it) that made fun of transgender people.
A Christian doctor in the UK was also fired from his government job earlier this summer after he refused to refer to a 6 foot bearded man as “Madam.”
But who cares? It’s not as if the United Kingdom is currently experiencing record violent crime rates, with violent crime in England and Wales having risen by 19% in a year, is it?
No, it’s much more important to go after Twitter users who hurt someone’s feelings by referring to them as their biological gender.
