Ms. Magnolia

Dear Ms. Magnolia, When all Americans are told they have to change the correct pronouns that they have always used to keep from hurting just a couple of people’s feelings, they are being led “like sheep to the slaughter.” Just because they are confused about what gender they are doesn’t mean I am.

I like or dislike individual people for who they are around me. I don’t put my friends into groups like color or gender or profession. I don’t intentionally hurt anyone’s feelings, and I’m not changing the way I was brought up to be, which is to be courteous and thoughtful of others. This is America. If they don’t like me, they don’t have to be around me.

And if the place I work thinks I have to change in any way but in my professional capacity, they are infringing on my personal space and I don’t need to work there. I am a hard worker and I can find a job. I can like most any job; it

doesn’t have to like me. If more people refused to work under these silly new conditions, the companies might come back to reality, so we can start to work for the good of everybody in peace again. Just Me

Dear Just Me, Your point is well-taken.
