  • What Is A Xyr?

    I mean how do you even pronounce Xyr?

    ANCOUVER -- Grammar teachers may need to amend their lesson plans after the Vancouver school board approved Monday a policy change that welcomes a brand-new string of pronouns into Vancouver public schools: “xe, xem, and xyr.”

    The pronouns are touted as alternatives to he/she, him/her, and his/hers, and come as last-minute amendments to the board’s new policy aimed at better accommodating transgender students in schools.

    Probably "Zuhr". Sounds more German than French...

      I definitely prefer the 'z' (ze, zir, zem) versions over the 'x', but that's probably because of my general aversion to x's at the beginning of words.
      I'm not here anymore.

        So let me get this straight, when the Islamo-fascists come knocking we are going to send out a battalion of Xyrs to meet them?

          No. Just a few Abrams tanks.

            Fixed.

                    It's them Canadiacans, again! They had to shorten the pronouns to make room for all the "Cafe and Bake Shop" extensions!

                          I'm pretty sure a Xyr is an alien from some sci-fi somewhere.

                            From now on, I demand that you all refer to me not as "he", "him", or any other obsolete and oppressive patriarchal pronoun. I prefer to be referred to as a "gloog".
