For The First Time Gender Neutral Identifier “MX” To be Legally Recognized and Included in Dictionary

For the first time in decades, a new honorific title will find its place in the The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) and legal documents. Many say this is signs of a changing language, it more accurately represents the signs of our society plunging further to the depths of  hell as it embraces this doctrine of devils.  Anyway, the gender neutral  ‘Mx’, is to identify transgender people and those who do not want to be identified as a specific gender.

According to The Sunday Times, Jonathan Dent, assistant editor for the OED,  “The title is the first new honorific to be accepted as an addition to the current set of gender identifiers.”

Each year new words and terms are chosen to be added to the OED based on the popularity of their use.  Over the past two years, the Mx honorific has been used by transgenders on official documents from driving licences to bank accounts.sodomites

He said titles, whether on online drop-down boxes or elsewhere, tended to be formal and enforce traditional relationships such as those between husband and wife, as in Mr and Mrs, or even profession such as Dr or Lord.

“This is an example of how the English language adapts to people’s needs, “with people using language in ways that suit them rather than letting language dictate identity to them,” says Mr. Dent.

The Department for Work and Pensions, HM Revenue and Customs, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and the NHS are among those public bodies now accepting the Mx title.

‘This is something new,’ the assistant editor said.

THE HISTORY OF THE ‘MX’ TITLE 

  • The title first appeared in the US publication ‘Single Parent Magazine’ in 1977.
  • Mr. Dent explains that the honorific was first called for by those with gender politics as their primary concern. They wished to see Mx replace Mr, Miss and Mrs which they viewed as discriminatory.
  • In the late 1990s it became more associated with those identifying themselves as neither male nor female.

Prophecy:

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils – 1 Timothy 4:1 (KJV).

Lovers of Pleasure: “lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV).

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry – 2 Timothy 4:3-5 (KJV).

Romans 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple – Romans 16:18 (KJV).
