Much like the President he supports noted Hollywood conservative James Woods is often prone to bouts of ill-advised and bigoted Twitter ranting.

From calling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the most dangerous person in America to branding fictional gay characters as indecent, Woods' feed is a quagmire of mindless liberal criticism and endless conservative screeching.

But a recent transphobic sermon from Woods about the proper use of pronouns caught the eye of the wordsmiths over at Dictionary.com who felt compelled to point out that Woods' thinly veiled transphobia was more than just bad manners.

"Please join me in using proper grammar, syntax, and spelling," Woods began on Twitter.
"The correct pronoun usage in the English language is 'he' for a singular male and 'she' for a singular female. 'They' is used for the plural of either males, females, or both. Don't be bullied by hare-brained liberals."


Fortunately the folks at Dictionary.com decide to take the time to point out how Woods was entirely wrong.

Dictionary.com posted:

"They has been in use as a singular pronoun since the 1300s. Among its best known users in history: Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Jane Austen."


It was a savage lesson in both English and humility, and Twitter was loving it.






People even threw in their own examples of just how wrong Woods was.




Even though it may fall on deaf ears when it comes to those who think like Woods, or don't think at all, many were still grateful that Dictionary was getting the word out there.




Hopefully Woods at least learned not to hide his transphobia behind grammar lessons.

If he wants to try again though he better look for another language.

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
