Leave the Kids & the Dictionary Alone: "Theyby" is a meaningless word

in life •  7 months ago

In one of the latest displays of unnecessary word creation, certain couples are now pushing for the word "theyby" to describe a baby in order to remove any gender association.


The effort by millions across America to eliminate traditional views on gender keeps snowballing into absurdity. Not only are some of the recent nouns and pronouns becoming increasingly unbelievable and often times laughable, in many cases the words they seek to replace are ALREADY gender neutral.

Here is the definition of baby, provided by google.com


1.a very young child, especially one newly or recently born.
"his wife's just had a baby"
synonyms: infant, newborn, child, tot, little one;

This definition may have already been obvious to the majority of you, but now we have proof that some people don't. The word baby is about as gender neutral as it gets. Even the SYNONYMS are gender-neutral.

This effort to change baby to "theyby" is equivalent to trying to change the gender neutral word person to "theyson". More problems and confusion arise from trying to make this a word than anything. Plus, why is there a need to bring our youngest, most innocent citizens into this madness?

News like this have been irking me lately, so I figured I would let off some Steem.
What are your thoughts on this recent movement?

Thanks for reading :)
