"Happy You Day": Introducing Gender-Neutral Mother's Day Cards

Just in time for mother's day, UK supermarket chain Waitrose has the perfect card for all the gender-neutral mothers out there! 

"Happy You Day" reads the card included in the retailer's Mother's Day range, reports The Sunday Times

The company says the cards are aimed at "broadening out who the cards can go to, whether it's grandmas or transgender mums."

Waitrose has been joined by other retailers, including Scribbler, whose Mother’s Day offerings include a “Two mums are better than one” card for same-sex couples and a “Dad, thanks for being the most amazing mum” card.

The changes come after calls by some trans activists to rename Mother’s Day. Suggestions include Guardian’s Day and Carer’s Day. -The Sunday Times

Several schools, including High Bank School in West Yorkshire and Consett Junior School in Durham have changed the holiday to "Special Person's Day" or "Mother's and Special Person's Day." 

Pick a gender, any gender, or don't

Waitrose's "Happy You Day" card the latest gender-neutral accommodation in what has been a year of change. Canada, for example, passed a bill in February to change the lyrics of its national anthem so that they will be “gender-neutral” - replacing the lyrics “in all thy sons command” with “in all of us command,” according to CBC News. Former member of the Canadian House of Commons Mauril Bélanger first introduced the legislation in 2016.

Meanwhile, last week Campus Reform reported that the Kennesaw State University LGBT Resource Center has conveniently produced a new pamphlet that adds “ne,” “ve,” “ey,” “ze,” and “xe” to the list of gender neutral pronouns.

The “Gender Neutral Pronouns” pamphlet, a copy of which was obtained by Campus Reform, tells students that “some people don’t feel like traditional gender pronouns fit their gender identities,” and thus lists alternatives that students can use instead. -Campus Reform

The pronouns are accompanied by a conjugation chart listing how they should be used as a subject, object, possessive, possessive pronoun and reflexive

For example, to refer to a student who identifies as “ne,” one could say “Ne laughed” or “That is nirs.” 

To refer to a student who identifies as “ve,” the pamphlet explains that one would say “Vis eyes gleam” or “I called ver.”

The pamphlet - which lists seven different types of gender neutral pronouns - encourages students to ask their friends, classmates, and coworkers how they identify before making any assumptions. 

The guide also reminds those who might assume one's gender that students "may change their pronouns without changing their name, appearance, or gender identity." Talk about low effort. In order to remedy this, Kennesaw State recommends that people's preferred pronouns be re-confirmed during regular "check-ins at meetings or in class." 

“It can be tough to remember pronouns at first,” the guide notes. “Correct pronoun use is an easy step toward showing respect for people of every gender.”

I can't believe how so many people are pre-occupied with wasting resources over such drivel.

Gender neutral? Holy fuck, can we throw some of these misfits off a cliff along with the PC mob?

Show me gender neutral and I'll show you someone who is a genetic defect that doesn't deserve all this attention.

Lets get back to fundamentals and stop with this shit already.

That's right.....thanks to an army of pussified Gamma "males", who smile and hand over their balls to liberated women, all for that "social justice" that just happens to require a good dose of reverse sexism to work. And women being women, with their blindspot being their huge egos and lack of rational thought (sorry ladies but its true), take the helm and think equality only cuts one way. The army of Gamma cucks don't say a word, while the rest of us have to call out the bullshit. I'm getting tired of being a bullshit policeman, but it does have its merits.

In my experience, its precisely the Gamma male cucks and liberated feminist women who feel most threatened by the presence of a real man. Real women love real men, and we both know the others are full of weak ass bullshit.

If Queer Theory is correct (this is all irrevocable genetics), then after 1-2 generations this will be done because these people will have neutered themselves out of the gene pool.

And if it is incorrect (this is all propaganda), then in 1-2 generations this type of person will self-destruct whatever society they live in, and cease to have any capacity to influence others.

"Happy You Day": Introducing Gender-Neutral Mother's Day Cards

My response: I AM SPEECHLESS!!!

This GENDER CONFUSION business is NOT going to end well for anyone!!!

MEN and WOMEN: Celebrating the Difference

A hammer and a screwdriver are different tools designed for different jobs. Is the hammer better than the screwdriver? No. Is a screwdriver better than a hammer? Of course not! Can you use a screwdriver as a hammer? Maybe, but it won't work as well.

Who is better, men or women? The answer to that question is "Yes!" A man is infinitely superior to a woman at being a man, and a woman is infinitely superior to a man at being a woman. Men and women are different-by design. Neither is superior to the other, but they are very, very different.

I want to address the wonderful differences between men and women. These differences aren't true in every single case, but they are generally true.

The Beauty and the Beast 

Men are generally stronger than women. 1 Peter 3:7 tells men to give "honor unto the wife as unto the weaker vessel."

God made Adam stronger because he was to be the provider and the protector. He had a physical frame that could protect Eve and muscles to dig and work in the garden.

The word Eve means "life giver." God made her to be the nurturer. Because she was weaker than Adam, doesn't mean she was inferior. Silk is weaker than canvas and porcelain weaker than steel, but they are certainly not inferior.

The Tortoise and the Hare 

Generally, men have more energy, but women have more durability. Remember the race between the tortoise and the hare? Men, you are like the hare, and your wife is like the tortoise. Remember who won that race?

Men have a larger lung capacity, but women have a better immune system. A man can out work a woman, but he ought not to criticize her for that. She can last longer.

The Romantic and the Mechanic 

Because of man's job, he has a hard outer shell. He will never have the romantic heart that a woman wants him to have. He's just not wired that way.

Look at what women read. Their magazines have articles like "Five Ways to Achieve Intimacy" while men read "How to Remodel Your Garage." Go to a high school and watch how the students carry their books. Girls carry them like they're carrying a baby. Boys hang theirs down to their sides. Give a little boy a doll; he'll use it for a hammer. Some people try to tell us that these differences are learned, but they're not; they are encoded.

The Radar and the Computer 

Men and women process information differently. A man's brain works more like a computer while a woman's is more like a radar. She has a great big reception disk, and it sweeps-taking in everything. She can see things and feel things that men don't see and feel.

That's because a woman uses both sides of her brain. This makes it easier for her to express emotions, but it may also be harder to separate emotion from reason. Using primarily the left side of the brain, a man tends to think more logically, analytically, and factually. Even as a woman is thinking logically, she is mixing in emotion.

The Code Speaker and the Reporter 

A woman uses language to express emotion while a man uses language primarily to dispense facts. Women share, but men report.

Don't listen to what a woman says, listen to what she means. If you sense, for example, that she is upset, but she says nothing is wrong; that means everything is wrong. Women speak in code. Men, on the other hand, just report the facts.

The Lover and the Achiever 

God told man to dress the garden and keep it, but He gave women a nurturing instinct. And God equipped each mentally and emotionally to do their jobs; man is primarily an achiever while woman is a lover.

In Ephesians 5:33, God tells the man to love his wife, but He tells the wife to reverence or respect her husband. That's because God knows our deepest needs.

United, Not Divided! 

These differences, believe it or not, shouldn't divide us. They should unite us. God made us different that He might make us one. These are more than mere psychological proclivities; they are there by divine design. Aren't you glad that God made us different? It's time to stop trying to be the be the same or resenting each other because of our differences. It's time to start celebrating the difference!

I am also a complementarian, but on "women use both sides of their brain," I would disagree in the sense that both men and women use both sides of their brain.

IMO, one difference missed here is that men do not get the support and sympathy that women get in most cases. This creates a culture where men live on the extremes. There are more men in boardrooms than women, but there are also more men collecting garbage or doing dangerous work.

The question I have is, why not let men and women figure out for themselves how they want to live, and allow honest commentary that is not forced to align with feminist dogma? Then again, that question answers itself.

Poetry is gonna sound like aliens discussing science.  How do I love zee, let me count the ways.

There's too many cards anyway.  Just have "happy day" or "happy <fill in blank>".  Or instead of all that sap, how about hallmark cards that say what people really think.  Like "happy fuck you for making my life miserable you selfish bastard".
