Thanks for sharing.

The overall atmosphere of meekness and supplication was mostly what triggered my revulsion response. Bret Weinstein kinda said the same thing here, at 7:55 in. And the switchboard conversation highlighted it too. It sounded like even the police were hunkered down in their station behind locked doors, and told Weinstein they couldn't protect him.

Didn't know they said ya'll that much up in Washington. Do they recruit exclusively from the South?

Nothing is exclusive about their recruiting, especially when it comes to grades. The term y'all is growing in popularity in the north, and I've heard it spoken outside the U.S. too.

I don't know if this is the reason why, but it's conveniently gender-neutral so one doesn't get admonished for using it, vs "you guys" (not intending it in any gender-specific way).

Makes sense. Yeah, so many European languages have the you-plural. We lost our Ye at some point.

Actually "you" was the you-plural. I think "ye" was a form of it... Perhaps the vocative? "Oh come all ye faithful". It's the thee's and thou's and thine's, the singulars, which we sadly dropped.

Y'all is a pretty good fix: make "you" singular and "y'all" plural. Then there's even another step, what I call the "comprehensive": "all y'all".

Edit: or were you thinking of "ye" as in "ye olde coffee shoppe"? In that case, the culprit is really a missing letter: the thorn - þ - which is the "th" sound. For a while, "y" was used as a stand-in.

haha, no.

Top paragraph, although the shoppe thing is addressed on the same page.

Well there's y'a'll, which is appropriate when addressing two or three, but when addressing a group, I believe the proper term is "all y'all."

Ha. I don't know if I would ever call that "proper" (nor improper), but of course that is very common. Or, if you're just being funny, just skip everything I wrote after "Ha."
