Quickest way for me to identify who not to take seriously and assume they're an unprofessional child.

I'm seeing this crap even from state government employees too.
CNN is an enemy of the state and should be treated as such.

Who the hell uses signatures? Just more meaningless text at the bottom of an email.

Elections are when people find out what politicians stand for, and politicians find out what people will fall for.

If they make me list pronouns, I am so going to use they/them.

If anyone asks me why, I will say it's because of all the voices in my head that I assume are my multiple personalities.

I've been seeing this as well. It's becoming increasingly common.

But honestly, I can't be surprised anymore that society would choose to change the behavior of 99.7% of the population for the feelings of 0.3% of the population. Just look at covid.

I had an interview recently and she introduced her as her name followed by her pronouns. She then asked me what i preferred to be called. I just said my name. After an awkward pause she proceeded with interview. Needless to say I didn't get accepted to move to next step.

basically being shamed into complying.

Question for the programmers: Is there a script that you can write to randomly generate your pronouns at the bottom of your email every time one goes out? Seems like if gender is supposedly fluid this would be a good way to run with it.

One of my office mates responded by adding his preferred proteins to his email signature block.

yes, in windows w/ outlook you could write a macro that would achieve this.

Yes

my FIL that works with me told me a few years back that my signature was unprofessional and should be changed.

Here was my signature:

--
First Last Name
Company Name
###-###-#### phone
###-###-#### fax

I asked him why that was unprofessional. He told me I need to change it because I should have the company logo.

Now keep in mind that we are a small family owned company, not Pepsi or Halliburton

I asked why I need the company logo, because it is annoying as hell when I think a customer is sending me something to review, and I end up downloading an attachment from someone's email on my phone. Only to find out it is their stupid company logo.

So now my signature is:

--
First Last Name
Company Name
###-###-#### phone
###-###-#### fax

It would have been helpful to me only because my name is only one letter different from a very VERY common man's name so if I was emailing someone I had never interacted with in person or on the phone, I would inevitably get the greeting "Good afternoon, Mr.xxxx".

At this point, I would probably add G/F/Y just to be salty.

Whenever I see pronouns in signature blocks I get a little suspicious they were born the way they want to be called. If they obviously look like it I figure I've just identified a ******.

Like if you're a fat guy with a Taliban beard named Tim you're obviously a him so STFU with all that nonsense.

There's a 98% chance the email is from HR if I see that nonsense at the bottom of an email.

In which case I'm not reading anyway.

So question for anyone that might have some idea - there are two women I know (at least that's what they were back when I knew them as kids) that have both listed their pronouns as

she/they

What on earth does that mean?
