    It’s so easy to trigger the mentally ill now, it’s not even fun anymore.


    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo cracked a tone-deaf joke at the network’s LGBTQ town hall debate Thursday night — sparking uproar on social media and prompting the anchor to issue an apology.

    Cuomo was welcoming Sen. Kamala Harris onstage in Los Angeles when the 2020 Democratic candidate told him, “My pronouns are she, her, and hers.”

    “She, her and hers? Mine too,” Cuomo replied with a smile, eliciting audible groans from the audience.

    “All right,” Harris finally replied, ending an awkward silence.

    Cuomo was quickly roasted on social media over the gaffe.

    “Dear @ChrisCuomo, people’s pronouns are not a punchline,” the National Center for Lesbian Rights tweeted.

    “In a year where LGBTQ Americans are finally being recognized on the national Presidential stage, making jokes about gender pronouns is beneath your dignity. Please do better in the future.”

    Josh Stickney, a spokesman for Equality California and Silver State Equality in Nevada, expressed his “incredible disappointment.”

    Actually trans people's pronouns are a punchline in a very sick and politicized joke.
    Look at this list in my link and tell me it's not mentally ill, absurdist humor. Gender Pronouns | LGBT Resource Center

    Why do people have to be hateful and disrespectful towards people? If someone wants to be called her instead of him then why not?

    Who made you the dictator of their life?

    Who made them dictator of my life? In certain places now it's against the law to misuse tranny pronouns and it results in oppressive fines and even jail time.
    It's Big Brotherism come to life and using the law to change the language and culture. I don't remember anyone asking me if I minded having my very own language hijacked for a bizarre political cult. https://nypost.com/2016/05/19/city-issues-new-guidelines-on-transgender-pronouns/

    It's not even so much as that when manners themselves are no longer politically correct.

    Agree. Up till now it's just been a pressure. Now it's become a crime.

    Eric Arthur Blair if I may ask you a question sir... It diverts from the OP subject matter just a little so I will give a warning to the Progressives and moderators...
    :offtopic:

    The link comes from the University of Wisconsin... What the hell happened to the good folks of the North in Wisconsin and Minnesota? This is flyover country, urban I grant you but still this is some of the silliest shit I have seen in a long time...

    Sir I don't expect you to have an answer, but if you do God bless you and please let me know...
