Pronoun Follies: #UMPronounChallenge Episode

   You kick ass, Wolverines
   I've begun to suspect that most millenials have simply never been taught the great importance of deploying one of the most important phrases in the English language, to wit: don't tell me what to do.
   This bit of Twitter defiance gives me a wee bit of hope for 'em.
   But seriously: we really have become a cowardly and compliant lot. They decreed that night is day. And now they've decreed that we will speak in ways indicative of our acceptance that night is day. Because silently letting falsehood pass for truth isn't enough. Totalitarians want public signs of compliance. They also know that if they force people to speak certain words, that will nudge them toward belief. And it sure looks like a helluva lot of people are reacting to this totalitarian insanity by quietly complying.
   'Merika, I am disappoint.
