NYC Mayor wants to fine businesses who don’t use transgender pronouns such as “ze” or “zir”

POSTED AT 9:21 AM ON MAY 19, 2016 BY JAZZ SHAW


I’m no longer sure on any given day if I’m watching the actual news out of New York City or reading the summary of a William Gibson novel. Either way, the crazy train has well and truly pulling into the station in the Big Apple. We learned this week that Hizzonor Bill de Blasio has yet another plan to entrench the city in “transgender” warfare and make sure that business owners are made to toe the line on political correctness. Under this latest scheme, any business which greets someone using a pronoun not matching the gender (or lack thereof) the customer “identifies” as could face a stiff fine in court. No… I’m not even remotely kidding you. (Washington Times)

Greeting customers as “Mr.” or “Mrs.” — or even not using the pronoun “ze” or “zir” — could prove costly for New York City businesses under rules drafted by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s bureaucrats.

The Gotham mayor’s Commission on Human Rights says entities that fail to address customers by their preferred gender pronouns and titles are in violation of the law and could be subject to penalties of up to $250,000.

The commission issued a “legal enforcement guidance” for the New York City Human Rights Law, which now “requires employers and converted entities to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun and title (e.g., Ms./Mrs.) regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth, anatomy, gender, medical history, appearance, or the sex indicated on the individual’s identification.”


So now New York City will regulate the speech of business owners and employees down to the level of punishing those who use standard, polite pronouns which have been accepted protocol for nearly as long as we’ve had language skills. If we were to stretch credulity to the point of denying basic medical science, you might be able to make the argument that someone you assumed was male could correct you and say they are female. With today’s fashions and hairstyles, who’s to say, right? If what appears to be a woman walks up to the perfume counter and, upon being greeted with a cheerful, “Good afternoon, Ma’am” informs you that they should be addressed as sir, what’s the harm? You still want to make the sale, so just call them sir and ring up the purchase. But if you fail to conform to the request, what law has been broken? Your boss might fire you for driving away business (and they would be well within their right to do so) but can you be dragged into court and fined? And we’re not talking about a small fine here.

The maximum civil fine that the commission may impose upon “misgendering” is $125,000. But when the violation is the “result of willful, wanton, or malicious conduct,” the maximum fine can double to $250,000.

That doesn’t even begin to address the question of demands to use misappropriated terms like “they/them/theirs” or worse, completely fake pronouns such as “ze/hir.” Shifting generic plurals to be used in the singular (“Would them care for some more coffee?”) is simply bad English and makes you sound illiterate. And don’t get me started on this “ze/hir” nonsense. Those aren’t even words. The city administration chooses to define them as, alternative pronoun systems developed by academics and/or LGBT communities, but that doesn’t make them part of the language and nobody is required to use these made up terms.

Or at least they weren’t until now. If these rules go into place I’m extremely tempted to head down to the city and start applying for part time jobs in retail. I’d love to see them try to enforce this mandate in court and have it survive a challenge up the line. If something like this can actually be done then we need to simply scrap the Bill of Rights entirely and let Bernie Sanders take over and complete the conversion to socialism.


WTF??

If this were to be passed into law in NYC and enforced, were I to own business in NYC I would either close it or replace all my employees with comnputerized kiosks that are programmed never to use pronouns of any kind.

Is there a pronunciation guide included in the law?

"ze" ... is that "ZEE" ... as in the letter "Z"

"zir" ... is that "ZER" ... as in "Eb e ne ZER"

So if a homo walks in and identifies themselves as a homo ... then we say Hi ZE what can WE do for you today?

And if a dyke walks in and identifies themselves as a dyke ... then we say Hi ZER how may we help you today?

Have I got it?

But they have to say it right? We aren't supposed to guess are we !!??

"Hello, welcome to the store. Do you identify as a male or a female? Which pronouns do you prefer?"



Really? That's.. really?

"Greetings earthling" might be safe unless the client identifies as Martian.

What about the police department? Are they going to drop sex in descriptions of suspects? Put men and women together in one cell? :lol:

Have the male TSA agents frisk the women passengers at JFK? :lol:

And, if a small bidness makes a pronoun mistake they're fined 250k. In what sort of alternate universe could any company other than Berkshire Hathaway afford a fine like that w/o going belly up?

These ppl have lost their fucking minds.

He must have been misunderstood or needs to clarify that proposed policy. Talk about killing the goose... That can't be what he meant.

NYC is a batshit crazy place. The whole state's been sliding into the abyss of weird bullshit, economy strangling bureaucracy, and local government as totalitarian authority fuckwardness for 20 years.

NYers are famous for their hospitality. So will they greet a weirdo with "Hey Zer, fungool Go back to Jersey ya creep!"?

Another version transglish.

Quote:
"Germanification' of the English language.

"The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

In the first year, "s" wi ll replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy.

The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of ...the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru. Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to oza pepl."


Old joke.
