    Isn’t this more about the current leftish trend to label people as ‘things’ based on identity instead of people? Split them up into identifiable groups. Very popular in communist societies.

    No, use of pronouns is ancient, and they do not label people as 'things'.

    Yes if you buy a TV licence you can legally access BBC television.
    However BBC on the wireless is absolutely free, and free of advertising too.
    Nobody is forced to have a television set and buy a TV licence.

    Well I did highlight the portion of the post I was responding to. If that wasn't enough then it would clearly be a further waste of time walking you thru what you obviously couldn't understand to begin with..

    In which case BBC TV is not free and I'm still waiting for the answer that there's a work around to that.

    Well I for one have never said BBC TV is free.
    My main point is it is not compulsory to pay for the BBC nor is it funded from taxpayers money.

    I think you have me confused with another poster. I have never said there is a work around, which I presume is a way of getting/stealin the TV service without paying for it.

    Page 6 #141. Your quote.
    "Vast swathes of the BBC can be accessed absolutely for free and legally."

    Yep, vast swathes of the BBC can be accessed absolutely free and legally.
    The BBC is not only about the television output.

    The point is that a pronoun does not create a new gender.

    Yea I did already say it and I’ll say it again because it matters. You didn’t say GB, you said a country. You were objectively not specific. That is not my fault.

    Like the Australian Broadcasting Corporation only the ABC is government funded but fiercely independent and often the most critical of government

    Hi again.
    Are you making some kind of point?
    I was objective pointing out why Great Britain is called thus.
    Like everybody with an opinion on the internet the rest is of course subjective.
