Controversial GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert, the gun-toting Colorado congresswoman who ran on a law and order platform that has been arrested quite a few times, and received her GED diploma a few months before winning the election to Congress, is mad about pronouns. Again. She’s been angry about pronouns for a couple of years now. Back in 2021, BoBo declared, “My pronoun is ‘Patriot,” however “patriot” is a noun, not a pronoun.
Lauren was responding to a clip of White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre calling out Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for blocking the College Board from testing a pilot Advanced Placement African American Studies (APAAS) curriculum in the state under his “Stop WOKE” Act.
Republicans are going after African-American history courses because their feelings are hurt, and they don’t want to teach children history lessons that are factual. They allege that those studies lack “educational value.”
Republicans aren’t just trying to eliminate Critical Race Theory being taught in schools (It is not taught in schools), but they’re going after courses that teach anything about the history of Black Americans.
Lauren tweeted, “Growing up, I don’t recall teachers announcing their marital status & pronouns to everyone.They’re there to educate.”
“How is this still a complaint of the Left?” she added.

Well, teachers were called Miss or Mrs. when I was growing up, so yeah, their martital status was known.
Twitter users dragged her around by her bigoted nose hairs.
I don’t recall active shooter drills in school when I was younger, Lauren, but my kids do.

Weird because I knew the pronouns of every single one of my teachers and for most of them I knew their marital status too.
They announced them on the first day of class by referring to themselves as Mr., Mrs., Ms., or Miss.

In your defense, you didn’t finish school, so it’s understandable.

So….you didn’t know someone named “Mrs.” Smith was married and “Ms.” Smith was not? Where did you grow up?

Growing up I don’t recall politicians being high school dropouts who give tours to white nationalists the day before a failed coup.
They’re there to legislate.
How is someone who won their seat by 500 votes so inappropriately confident (read 1st sentence above again).

Why are the radical Right so terrified of pronouns? It literally makes no sense.

She’s not a serious politician, and pronouns aren’t a problem. What is a problem is how extreme the Republican party has become. Republicans create culture wars to keep us divided. We’re looking at you, Mrs. Lauren. See what I did there? I pronouned her! I said what I said.
