WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, the State Department issued a tweet commemorating “International Pronouns Day”, an apparent celebration of the mainstreaming of pseudoscientific gender theory and its enshrinement in our modern lexicon.
The department also provided a link to a page on ShareAmerica.gov, which glowingly emphasizes the apparent importance of publicly sharing one’s pronouns.

While team Biden uses a federal government department as a mouthpiece for nonsense, the Taliban (whose rise to power was predicated on the asininity of Biden’s foreign policy) has been murdering women who offend the regime before posting pictures of their severed heads to social media. Such was the case for Mahjabin Hakimi, a female youth volleyball player whom, on Thursday, the New York Post reported to have been murdered in August.
The Post reports:
She was killed earlier this month, but her death remained mostly hidden because her family had been threatened not to talk, claimed the coach, using a pseudonym, Suraya Afzali, due to safety fears.
Images of Hakimi’s severed neck were published on Afghan social media, according to the paper, which did not say how old she was.
Conflicting reports online suggested that happened earlier, with an apparent death certificate suggesting she was killed Aug. 13 — the final days of the Taliban’s insurgency before seizing Kabul.
However, the Payk Investigative Journalism Center said its sources also confirmed that Hakimi “was ‘beheaded’ by the Taliban in Kabul.” The governing group has yet to comment, Payk Media said.
Afzali told the Persian Independent that she was speaking out to highlight the risk that female sports players face, with only two of the women’s national volleyball team having managed to flee the country.
“All the players of the volleyball team and the rest of the women athletes are in a bad situation and in despair and fear,” she told the paper. “Everyone has been forced to flee and live in unknown places.”
One of the players who escaped, Zahra Fayazi, told the BBC last month that at least one of the players had been killed.
“We don’t want this to repeat for our other players,” she told the broadcaster from her new home in the UK.
“Many of our players who are from provinces were threatened many times by their relatives who are Taliban and Taliban followers.
“The Taliban asked our players’ families to not allow their girls to do sport, otherwise they will be faced with unexpected violence,” Fayazi said.
“They even burned their sports equipment to save themselves and their families. They didn’t want them to keep anything related to sport. They are scared,” she said.
Clearly, the most pressing geopolitical issue with which we must deal is that of people being misgendered.

Two things are true of the Biden administration. First, it’s populated entirely by those who are unwaveringly convinced of their own virtue.
Second, the disastrous domestic and foreign policy implications that result from basing your entire agenda on virtue-signaling and catchphrases sourced from New York Times thinkpieces are glaring. However, team Biden take no issue in washing their hands of it all — stories like these serve as a case in point, where we’ve been assured by the Biden administration and the mainstream media alike that Kabul was bound to fall no matter what, and that Biden himself is merely a victim of circumstance whose haphazard withdrawal from Afghanistan had nothing to do with our allies being murdered by jihadist insurgents.
