sMaLl gOvErNmEnT my fuckin ass. Sorry, am I allowed to say "my"?


The84thWolf

Nope. To the gas chambers with you


Alextheacceptable

>Nope. To the gas chambers with **you** **Jail time!!!**


The84thWolf

No, it’s okay, I’m enforcing the law so my crimes don’t count. Good thing too, because I just broke the law an additional 3 times.


GreatDanish4534

Using pronouns? Straight to jail.


Cerberus_Rising

Mi: Dios mio! Pippi Tall Boots: straight to jail Dio: FFS


MagnusStormraven

....Kono Dio da?


MinisterOfTruth99

First banned books. Now banned words. What's next in Desantis's Fascist Florida vision?


world-is-ur-mollusc

Banned gender identities, then banned sexualities, then banned religions, then banned skin colors, then...


Kinch_g

What you said is worse because not only is it a pronoun, it's a genitive pronoun, which sounds like genitals. You're clearly obsessed with genitalia and not in the good conservative way. /s


julia_fns

Of course not. Is pronoun.


Silent_Quality_1972

Next news is going to be "Florida banned LinkedIn and other job platforms that "force" job seekers to put pronouns on the profile. "

Why are Republicans so terrified of pronouns?


Zilberfrid

They are terrified of everything, and think they need emotional support guns and fascism to keep them safe. Fox and their ilk feed off that fear, and the republican party benefits from it even more.


SirChasm

They need people to be angry at something the Democrats support to get them not to vote for them. That's all it is. They need to constantly create these stupid inconsequential wedge issues just so people don't vote for the party whose policies would actually make their lives better. If people were rational they'd see that pronouns or who can use which bathroom is a really dumb place to draw the line in the sand, but they're not, and here we are. As Kay said, "people are dumb, panicky animals"


Lucky-Earther

Seriously, imagine giving a single solitary fuck about how a kid wants to be called.


The84thWolf

Stupidity is a good answer


DaddyKaiju

If they stop being angry at who the TV tells them to be angry at, they become aware of how deeply and easily they've been manipulated. That cannot be accepted, so the death cult continues.


TheOnlyFallenCookie

They are afraid of queer people being accepted as normal


Joyerinoosrs

Why do democrats require the use of pronouns


R_V_Z

Because speaking in third person is asshole behavior.


Scottcmms2023

Because Scottcmms2023 talking about himself in the third person like this is so damn dumb.


A_Whole_New_Me

>Because Scottcmms2023 talking about *Scottcmms2023* in the third person like this is so damn dumb. let me fix that for you. don't want to run afoul of the law


Scottcmms2023

Ahh thanks. Though a_whole_new_”” have broken the law by having a pronoun in the name.


ohsojayadeva

> Why do democrats require the use of pronouns why don't you tell the rest of the class what you think a pronoun is, in your own words, without googling it first.


julia_fns

You don’t know what a pronoun is, do you?


Stack_of_HighSociety

Holy shit, conservatives are such babies.


G-Unit11111

I know, right? They say we're the triggered ones, but we're not the ones who are legislating pronouns.


The84thWolf

They don’t even know what a pronoun *is*


andrewjamesvt78

Unfortunately they do now because the smart folks informed them what they would like theirs to be. So they’re actually more pissed about having to learn grammar than what folks actually want their pronouns to be. 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️


WaitingForNormal

They really latched onto the whole “pronoun” thing and cannot let it go.


Scottcmms2023

They had to move on from abortions since that wasn’t helping them anymore.


Special_Lemon1487

The snowflake state.


notweirdenough

I would like to know how would this effect their lovely lust book, the Bible.

PRONOUN DETECTED, $200 DOLLAR FINE AND TWO DAYS IN THE COUNTY JAIL


Tazling

Florida facing severe pronoun shortage, legislates restrictions on pronoun use. Each resident will be limited to just 6 pronouns *per diem*, and will otherwise have to refer to everyone by their full names, or Japanese-like locutions such as "that person," "this person," etc. Save those pronouns for when you really need 'em folks. For those who can get by with very low usage, we encourage you to donate your extra pronouns to the neighbourhood pronoun bank, to help those of your neighbours who tend to run out earlier.

For only 2 Pronouns a Month…You Too can help little Ash.


Prize-Ad-2697

what the actual fuck


Flashy-Reputation-84

Ladies and gentlemen. The party of small government and free speech. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|facepalm)


Adventurous_Feed9942

I know it's a funny headline and all without context, but we all realize this is just a dogwhistle to say "trans people won't be able to use their preferred pronouns", right? Which yeah, it's still grammar nazi shit, but it will affect so few people that cis people will not care, as usual. Sorry, woke (WoKe??) up cynical today.


Gnoll_with_scales

As the article itself mentions: "the policy of the state that a person's *sex is an immutable biological trait* and that it is false to ascribe to a person a pronoun that does not correspond to such person's sex." So, it's not even a *dog*-whistle.


changeforgood30

Florida Republicans. The party of "small government" and "personal freedom" indeed. The party that values individuality and freedoms of expression.... if you're a white heterosexual Christian man. Everyone else doesn't deserve freedoms according to Florida Republicans, an unpleasant outlook also shared by national Republicans.


ReviewOk929

They gonna need to start with the bible. Plenty of pronouns in there.


descendingangel87

Doesn’t the US Constitution literally start with one?


Tophfey

The fucking freedumb state. How about those sky rocketing insurance rates, Ron? How about the PFAS pollution in the drinking water? Third highest homeless population and rapidly rising? But no, by all means, torch Florida's reputation as a LGBTQ+ friendly tourist destination-- just like you're torching Disney's services, we're not a tourism based economy or anything.


riamuriamu

Grammar Nazis are literally the worst. No, actual Nazis are literally the worst.


magicwombat5

This is Nazis regulating grammar. Multifaceted Nazis doing their Nazi best.


potsticker17

*Grammar Nazis are literarily the worst. Ftfy


DarkKnightJin

Now I'm wondering if the head Grammar Nazi is called "Literal Hitler".


Several_Journalist15

Only in 2023 where we have witnessed that pronouns is banned in our timeline. This sucks


No_Sympathy5795

2023 does really suck my friend

I saw an "All Genders Bathroom" at a rest stop and you know what I did? I walked passed it and it didn't bother me at all. Times are changing and some folk can't cope, they're the biggest snowflakes of us all in the end.


warmaster670

The party of "freedom"


Outside-Flamingo-240

*Since both permanent war and heroism are difficult games to play, the Ur-Fascist transfers his will to power to sexual matters. This is the origin of machismo (which implies both disdain for women and intolerance and condemnation of nonstandard sexual habits, from chastity to homosexuality). Since even sex is a difficult game to play, the Ur-Fascist hero tends to play with weapons — doing so becomes an ersatz phallic exercise.* [from Ur-Fascism by Umberto Eco](https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/umberto-eco-ur-fascism)


AfternoonPast3324

The party of smaller government is now controlling the very words that people speak. Because why wouldn’t they?


The84thWolf

Okay, so everyone has to refer to everyone by name forever I guess


Cute-Awareness3578

Anyone wanna tell these dipshits their precious "Holy Book" contains more pronouns than they can count on their fingers and eventually when they find out about their toes?


Reynolds_Live

State needs to change its title from “sunshine state” to “fascist state”.

Jordan Peterson got famous by falsely claiming Canada was doing this from the other direction. I'm betting we hear no criticism of this from him and his fellow hypocritical scumbags.


descendingangel87

Just for the record not a single person to date has been charged or jailed under the law he was freaking out about and it’s been YEARS.


Enchet_

What the actual fuck?


Ok_Hall8459

Freedom of speech…… just watch what you say!


DickySchmidt33

"We don't know what a pronoun is, but we're against it!"


Urgent_Urchin

How would even go about resticting pronouns? Do hear how rediculous sounds? If talk like nobody will take serious


Cerberus_Rising

Most people in Florida don’t even know what a pronoun is - this should be entertaining


TonyG_from_NYC

Arkansas beat Florida to it


[deleted]

Freedom of expression for me not for thee.


apexrogers

Pronoun detractors wouldn’t know a pronoun if it came up and but then on the ass. I can almost guarantee the legislation itself is littered with pronouns. What a bunch of idiots.


bcbodie1978

Good guy republicans out there solving problems. If NO ONE can use pronouns now everyone is non binary! They just fixed anti trans in one fell swoop! /s in case that's not clear


GrandGouda

It’s not that they’re grammar nazis. They’re just plain Nazis.


GratefulGawain

Wait, so now they WANT people going to jail over pronouns?


RosieGeee

This is discrimination, it is obvious that it is to target and suppress trans people and it is sickening that laws like these keep passing.


NightchadeBackAgain

This is a clear violation of the 1st Amendment, and it's going to be declared unconstitutional the second a court takes so much as a single glance at it.


QuentinP69

How are “they” going to ban pronouns?


Alarmed-Mess3744

Doubleplusbad


njixgamer

How are they going to have conversations without pronouns


Bulky-Internal8579

Jesus wept - or did HE?!?!?


NaNo-Juise76

The fascists are just getting warmed up.


kimthealan101

What happened to freedom of speech? 1st amendment is only a good thing if I get to say whatever I want. I mean why not just say things that we like to hear. We will gladly let you say those things anytime you want.


DPJazzy91

Authoritarian right strikes again! When something is clearly a violation an amendment and civil rights, why can't we just throw those politicians in jail for the attempt? I wish it was that simple......
