Instead of concerning itself with the Americans still trapped in Afghanistan, with China’s aggression toward Taiwan or with Iran’s looming nuclear capabilities, the State Department has decided to focus on so-called “gender pronouns.”

In a tweet posted Wednesday, the U.S. government agency tasked with leading America’s foreign policy celebrated so-called “International Pronouns Day,” which for all intents and purposes appears to be a fake holiday, by providing the reasons why people (mainly Americans) use so-called “gender pronouns.”

The tweet specifically linked to an article on a State Department website about these apparently important pronouns.

As of Thursday afternoon, the tweet boasted only about 800 likes but over 6,000 negative retweets and 15,000 negative comments, making it perhaps one of the most ratioed tweets in Twitter history.

Here’s a small sample of the backlash and mockery that ensued:

Currently in charge of the department is Antony Blinken, a “woke” man himself who gleefully announced over the summer that Americans applying for a passport will soon be able to choose from a slew of genders, including “non-binary,” which isn’t real; “gender non-conforming,” which isn’t real; and intersex, which is a legitimate medical condition.

Also over the summer, Blinken authorized U.S. embassies abroad to fly the rainbow Pride flag and the Black Lives Matter flag.

And of course, the secretary of state works under a White House whose own website features these fictional pronouns.

Returning to the present, the State Department’s report on “gender pronouns” does contain some facts.

“In the United States, it’s becoming increasingly common for people to ‘share their pronouns,'” it reads.

This is true. Thanks to the spread of “woke” ideology, it has indeed become common in some parts of the countries — namely wherever “woke” people congregate — for folks to obsess over these pronouns.

“These pronouns include the gender-neutral they/them/theirs — words that traditionally refer to a plural number but that today are used by some individuals who identify as gender nonbinary or who prefer not to share gender information,” the report continues.

“Other pronouns include the feminine she/her/hers and the masculine he/him/his. Some people are pioneering gender-neutral pronouns such as ze/zir/zirs,” it adds.

It’s true people are using these made-up pronouns, though the State Department failed to note the confusion that they’re causing. The use of these pronouns in official writings (reports, for instance) usually provokes widespread confusion:

None of this seems to make any sense, including the administration’s constant obsession with “woke” ideology versus with, you know, doing its job
