Jesus Wants You to Stop Using Plural Pronouns to Refer to Singular Subjects

This silly little meme (if that’s not redundant) has begun showing up on Facebook and elsewhere:

funfact

Well, that is a fun fact.

But here’s a funner one.

People who insist on using plural pronouns with singular referents, especially when there is absolutely no chance whatsoever of accidentally offending a transperson, narrowly miss being murdered by me.

English. Learn it. Use it. Stop citing the “evolution” of language as an  excuse for your decision to sign up for the New Illiteracy.
