every time I use “they” to refer to a single gender-unknown person on Tumblr, another piece of my grammar-filled heart shatters, and the pieces scatter at the bottom of hell

“They” has been a singular pronoun for hundreds of years, you melodramatic dipshit.

well… actually… no… they is plural. people use they when they should use he, she, or it.

dense motherfucker, the pronoun “they” is an english equivalent for the third person indefinite singular and has been for literally centuries. it remains morphologically and syntactically plural therefore you don’t need to shit your little pantaloons at compromising your surely rock solid grammar rules.

i guarantee every fuckin time you’ve ever had to refer to a person of an unknown gender you’ve used “they” subconsciously. (“The post clerk gave me a message for you.” “Oh, what did they say?”) but you only have a problem with it when people specify it as a pronoun for themselves because you’re a shitlord i fuckin guess.

grammarized straight into hell

cackles linguistically

I want to make love to this post.

OMG so I’ve seen this a few times today and i liked it but i never noticed

“you’re a shitlord i fuckin guess”

A+ would reblog again

Go back and read any fucking classical novel you like, including Shakespeare’s plays. “THEY” has been used for unknown people sine the Early Modern rendition of the language became a fucking thing.

the “well actually” crowd at it again.
