It doesn’t get much more Dreher-Baity than this NYT dispatch from
Cloud-Cuckoo Land Sweden:
At an ocher-color preschool along a lane in Stockholm’s Old Town, the teachers avoid the pronouns “him” and “her,” instead calling their 115 toddlers simply “friends.” Masculine and feminine references are taboo, often replaced by the pronoun “hen,” an artificial and genderless word that most Swedes avoid but is popular in some gay and feminist circles.
The rest of the story writes itself. Perhaps they should stick electronic tails on the childrens’ rear ends and call them tigers.
And to think the ancestors of these people once were Vikings. Good luck getting that Malmo situation under control, hens.
