How can something be hilarious and feel deeply threatening at the same time?

They certainly like to pervert our language. As I pointed out "fisher" is an English word that has been around for centuries, and we don't need a new one. That's probably true for any occupation.

The thing is, why does everything and everyone have to change to accommodate a minority of women who decide to become men, then wish to use the body they hate to give birth. ? Surely the tiny amount of people who go down this path could simply be asked how they wish to be addressed ?

Words have always come into popular usage only, for the most part, to be forgotten thereafter..We're living in a time of turmoil that includes linguistics and bent vocabularies. As Hilda Baker would say, It's just a phrase . Something to smile at rather than decry? Society changes in peculiar ways sometimes..
