Merriam-Webster Adds "Nonbinary" Definition Of 'They'

This is stupid, obviously.
I'm not even that opposed to the singular 'they'--but there's no such thing as a "nonbinary" person. A distribution can be "non-binary," I suppose...which would mean, basically: non-bimodal. But not a single person. Someone who actually is neither male nor female is intersexed. There need be--and, in fact, should be--no word for someone who "identifies" as neither--which means: merely says they are. The left, being relativist at its core, doesn't quite reject the idea that saying makes things so. To the left, "identifying" as x merely means: saying you're x. But, since thinking or saying you're an x doesn't make you an x, this is just dumb. Look, you can say that your a rabbit or an asteroid if you want to. That's up to you. It makes you delusional or a liar or some combination of the two...but that's generally your business. Though it certainly doesn't make you an actual rabbit or an actual asteroid.
