The State Department is being exposed for doing something completely out of line in an attempt to try to push their progressive agenda. What they did is so cringe worthy, reeks of desperation, and is completely out of line. However one journalist would have none of their political shenanigans.
The exchange between Matt Lee and Principal Deputy Spokesperson Vedant Patel shed light on a troubling change within the State Department’s email system. It appeared that pronouns were now automatically added to the “From” portion of emails, disregarding employees’ preferences and even assigning incorrect pronouns. Lee argued that while offering the option to include pronouns could be reasonable, imposing them without consent and misidentifying individuals was unacceptable.
This issue, it seems, stems from an Executive Order signed on June 25, 2021. Section 5 of the order explicitly states that agencies must promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility while protecting employee privacy. However, the State Department’s recent actions regarding pronouns seemed to contradict these principles. The controversy lies not in recognizing and respecting gender identity but rather in the forceful imposition of pronouns without individual consent.
Critics argue that the State Department’s decision encroaches upon employees’ privacy rights and potentially violates their freedom of expression. By assigning pronouns against an individual’s will, the department undermines personal autonomy and disregards the significance of self-identification. Furthermore, the fact that incorrect pronouns were being assigned added another layer of concern.
The State Department’s imposition of pronouns without consent has stirred a wave of controversy and concern among employees and observers alike. The clash between diversity and personal autonomy is at the center of this heated debate, leaving many to ponder the true intentions behind such a controversial move. Knowing this administration it may be safe to assume the intention behind the move.
