But let's all make fun of Stephen Miller's (extremely normal) appearance instead.

Just remember folks, "progress" is a euphemism for the rejection of sanity and normalcy.

========================================

Connecticut city's elected body eliminates gender pronouns
Updated 1:00 pm, Wednesday, January 10, 2018

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — The legislative body in Stamford, Connecticut, has removed gender pronouns from its written rules.

The Board of Representatives voted last week to remove "he/she" and "his/her" from its rules of order, replacing them with specific titles, including president and clerk, the Advocate newspaper reported.

The measure passed unanimously with one abstention.

The change was proposed by three Democrats elected to the 40-member board in November, including Raven Matherne, the state's first openly transgender elected official. It does not change the way the rules are followed or carried out, she said.

"It's an act to acknowledge the members of this board, just as in each of our districts and the city at large, cannot always be described as he or she," Matherne said.

Stamford is the state's third most populous city, with about 130,000 residents, according to the city's website.

The move gives Stamford the opportunity to set the bar in updating its language to be LGBTQ inclusive, board members said.

"It's a modernization," said Democratic board member Benjamin Lee. "Gendered nouns are no longer used as often in legal documents or legislative documents."

The Triangle Community Center in nearby Norwalk, a resource for the region's LGBT population, welcomes the change.

"This measure will make Stamford's governing body more welcoming, inclusive and accessible to people of every gender identity, as it should be," Executive Director Anthony Crisci said.

A pretty wealthy area, but a craphole.
I wonder how long before they lose even more Corp HQs than they have. The Dems have been taking CT down brick by brick. Taxation hell.

OK. I Go through there, but have never taken the exit.

Just so I can get my bearings, do you find Greenwich and Fairfield County to be crap holes?

No! Not at all!
Hey. Don’t get me wrong. They have an exclusive yacht club or three there...but the point of getting in a boat is to go somewhere else. LOL
THE Stamford per capita income (& net worth even) are insanely high. I just don’t confuse wealthy people living in a place as a feature to make it nice. North Stamford is nice. But that south Stamford area off 95 is a total cluster. Real narrow streets, McOffice buildings all looking the same and shoehorned in on every square inch... it just sucks there. I’m an odd duck. I think Fairfax VA blows too...and for similar but slightly different reasons. Don’t get off the interstate there unless you’ve got some IP work *(and I imagine there is a lot of it there), because you won’t even have room to turn around. Stamford is a weirdly claustrophobic place...albeit with Maybachs stuck in traffic.

Stamford is just Bridgeport that won a lottery in the 70s and bought a bunch of sparkle.

Greenwich & Fairfield are real nice. Darien too. Really nice.
Full of CT aholes, but nice nonetheless. You’d never know you were so close to NYC hell in those towns.

Fun fact-my sister drove right over that I95 bridge just before it collapsed & killed people. :shock:
