Abilene TX to Vote on He/She Pronouns for City Charter
Mayor insists it’s not woke, but secretly BASED.
Has anyone considered that pronouns can help stop climate change?
Could be a marketing opportunity there for a young up-and-coming progressive marketing strategist.
ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – The City of Abilene is putting the term “councilmember” to a vote this November. Since the 1960s, the City Charter has used masculine terminology when referring to its members, but women have been elected as councilmembers in Abilene since at least the late 1970s.
In Thursday’s special meeting, City Manager Robert Hana said there was no recognition of the female gender in the charter. Meanwhile, Mayor Anthony Williams said he wasn’t aware there was a problem.
This is a very Texas and very appropriate response from the mayor.
What exactly is the problem?
Mayor Williams stated in the meeting that he didn’t know of any outside group which recommended changing the City Charter language. Be that as it may, the mayor also said it’s a conversation that has been two years in the making, regarding the change.
Very interesting statement.
“Gee whizz, This just came out of nowhere. I don’t know of any outside LGBT group pressuring us to do this. No, siree Bob.
“This is nothing contrived in regards to some sort of larger agenda,” Mayor Williams said. “We don’t have 50 genders, there are two. I want to be sure that it reflects that, and by the way you are voting on it.”
Ah, so making pronoun (he/her) changes to your city charter is actually the conservative position.
Abilene is voting to send a message that there are indeed only 2 genders (she/him).
I guess we’ll find out in November if Abilene Texas is to become the Most Based City in America — only recognizing 2 genders in their city charter.
