“Why does Bud Light want us to celebrate diversity and pronouns?”
July 16, 2022
Have you seen the new Bud Light cans? Each can is illustrated with a rainbow along with a command to “celebrate everyone’s identity.”
The cans are also festooned with pronouns and words that might be pronouns. Which is to say, there are the classic pronouns printed on the can — you know; she, him, her, they, etc.
But then there were a bunch of made-up words which we imagine are whiz-bang new-age pronouns that do not reside in any dictionary on the planet. For example: what is X-E and X-E-M? (That last one kinda sounds like a satellite radio network.) What is S-I-E and H-I-R? And what the devil is a Z-E and a Z-I-R? (Kinda sounds like the trim level for those high-end Camaros GM produced in yester-decade. Do some people identify as a muscle car? Cool!)
Here’s another question: are there even a dozen people in our great Dominion who “identity” as a XE, XEM, SIE, HIR, ZE and a ZIR? Have you ever met one? What do they look like?
