As if we needed more proof that the Looney Tunes left is traveling down the crazy train tracks at an ever-increasing degree of silliness, a “transfeminist bioethicist” activist in Toronto is on the warpath against people who “gender” animals — refer to animals as either male or female. In other words, pretty much everyone on the planet.
Florence Ashley — who prefers the pronouns “they” and “them” — explained in a tweet:
“Gendering animals serves to normalise [sic] bioessentialist conceptions of gender. When we gender animals, we forget that sex is assigned. We begin to believe that sex is literally ~in~ the body.”

“Bioessentialism,” as noted by The Blaze, is the belief that biology determines specific attributes and traits, including those related to gender identity. In other words, settled science.

As is the case with all facts, data, history, logic, and common sense, any or “all of the above” that flies in the face of the left’s various narratives is to be discarded and ignored. (See: “mask mandates,” “lockdowns,” “Fauci.”)
So, the bottom line, people: stop taking it upon yourselves to assign male or female names to your pets, lose the gender-specific pronouns, and for the love of God, stop attempting to “normalize bioessentialist conceptions of gender.” Or something.
Needless to say, “Instructor Florence Ashley” was widely ridiculed on social media following her “guidance.” Canadian professor, evolutionary behavioral scientist, and author Gad Saad responded with this masterpiece:
“Exactly. I never assign a sex or gender to my pets or children. I simply refer to them as non-arboreal carbon-based multicellular agents. I feel that using
