I don't have a real point, except maybe that any time someone gets up your butt about tweaking some rule to be more gender-inclusive, just remember that English never made sense to begin with and you can fuck with it all you want.

We say, "She is going to the store."
And we say, "I will go to the store with her."

We have she/her, I/me, they/them, we/us.

But you/you.

Pronouns are among the only words in English that get declined. Outside of adding an S (or ES) to most nouns to make them plural, we don't really decline words. Except pronouns.

As long as we're talking about thee and thou, another quirk of "you":

We say, "You are going to the store."
And we say, "I will go to the store with you."

We use the same word for both subject and object in a sentence.

Somewhere along the way we started using "you" for both singular and plural and thee and thou fell out of fashion.

Y'all is basically giving us back the distinction between singular and plural you.

If anyone was ever confused about when use thee and thou if you're trying to talk like the King James Bible, it's simple: thou is the singular you.

You is supposed to be plural.

(Which is, incidentally, a good stock answer for when people say that singular they is confusing: HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH "YOU," DO YOU NOT KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE I AM SPEAKING TO RIGHT NOW???)

English in its current form uses "you" as both a singular and a plural.

Most of English has different pronouns for plurals - I and we, he/she and they - but not you. We have to determine when you is singular or plural from context.

The pronoun y'all - or, in parts of the country, youse, and occasionally the nouns-functioning-as-pronouns "you guys" and "you folks" - are not actually bad grammar, they are filling a gap in the English language.

Messaging me yet again to say that tweets are not ignoring you and to call me a dumbass just makes me enjoy your suffering.

Seeing these tweets and sending a follow up ask to tell me how ignorant I am will get you both ignored and subtweeted.

I think no matter how reprehensible we find our enemies we should always try to engage in meaningful dialogue.

So if Tami Lahren ever wants to have a chat over some wine about our differing views, I have a beautiful cask of Amontillado she must come over and try. twitter.com/TomiLahren/status/
