I think we should all eschew pronouns

Recommended Posts

The little bastards can make a mess of a sentence and cause confusion. So I try to minimize my use of them, er, pronouns.

Agreed, saying all those nouns over and over can really wear you down.

Is ass when used in "humourless ass-hole"? 

Well, "hole" is at noun and "ass" describes the noun so "ass" would be an adjective.

Or Anti nouns.

I got my first e-mail from a colleague recently that had her pronouns listed in her signature line:

 Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

In some of the classes I take, they ask about our preferred pronoun. It's not much different than when a teacher says, "I am going to read your name off my class list, please tell me what you would like to be called."

They can say that in school?

In high school, I told a teacher I went by my middle name.  When she met my parents and told them she had some problems with Freddy not doing his homework, they just assumed she was talking about the wrong kid.
