Last week, I found a nearby university clinic that specializes in wholistic, naturopathic (sp?) practices for all types of maladies. Researching them further, I perused the application I’d have to fill out for my first appointment, if I ever chose to go there. Among other things, it asked which pronoun I prefer they use when referring to me. Among the list, they, it, us, them, etc. The choice of “she” was at the bottom of the list. Okay, that’s part of the norm now.
And also last week, in the news, arose the term “toxic masculinity” which is now a syndrome whereby the traits that men are born with are said to be toxic and undesirable. In fact, it is now in the DSM (the news reported) as a behavioral problem.
Honestly? Sometimes I feel like I’ve landed on another planet. Wishing all a wonderful day.
