They're completely bonkers. It's almost as if they don't want people to vote for them.

Must take fucking ages to do the roll call at every meeting.

"Hi I'm Jenny, I'm an inclusive self identifying non-male, cisgender, pansexual vegetarian woman-LARPer, pronouns are it, of and oof, literal violence is violence, chocolate starfish are starfish, sksksksk save the turtles here's my hydroflask" etc

Oh lord! Is that real?

At least they will have less time to deal with those pesky environmental issues the irritating supporters want them to focus on.

I am troubled by the references to the opposite of 'male' and 'female' since male and female are biological terms which do not exist. And if they don't exist, then how can self-identifying as the opposite exist? Tell me that.

But the main thing is that while environmental apocalypse is imminent, it is important to take the time to ensure that you self-identify as the opposite of something that you can't identify.

How can you reverse climate change without doing that?

Sorry, when I say 'climate change', I mean 'differences of environmental phenomena caused by self identifying non-females'.

Thats so absurd - who self identifies as the things they arent.

I might sign off as Non-reptile in future

Gloriously bonkers - and a tragic reminder that here is yet another political party completely unfit to govern sad

willywillywillywilly Tue 03-Sep-19 10:53:49

Someone on the twitter thread suggested they were trolling their own party! I hope that's true

AncientLights Tue 03-Sep-19 10:54:51

Can I identify as a non-ghost please?

ArnoldWhatshisknickers Tue 03-Sep-19 10:55:17

It's almost as if they don't want people to vote for them.

Their wish is my command.

Seriously, why can't they just use plain English and stop excluding all the non-pomo-addled people, women and men alike?

"Thats so absurd - who self identifies as the things they arent".

Erm, the whole of the transgender movement?

madeyemoodysmum Tue 03-Sep-19 10:56:42

This is so annoying as green were my go to as no one else to vote for. Now I have no one.

If Aimee Challenor were still in the Greens and had been selected for the co-chair role, then Challenor would fill the self identifying non-male slot. Because Challenor does not identify as male.

And if Rob Grant filled the other slot (self identifying non-female), then the Greens would state that the co-chairs are split 50:50 in terms of non-males and non-females.

Even though both slots are occupied by biological males.

DreadPirateLuna Tue 03-Sep-19 11:17:10

Argh! You cannot urge people to "listen to the science" wrt climate change and spout non-science wrt sex. All of us who identify as non-idiots and non-fans of environmental destruction might like to vote for the non-blue non-red party, but not while they are spouting this non-sense.

See, this is the whole problem with mangling language.

I have no idea who either Liz Carlton or Rob Grant are, but ordinarily the use of 'self identifying' makes my first thought that the person 'self identifying as' in reality is not. So I would assume Liz is a man and Rob a woman.

WrathoSWhlttIeKIop Tue 03-Sep-19 11:24:05

I identify as a non Klop.
Be very careful what you saygrin

littlbrowndog Tue 03-Sep-19 11:24:40

Who the fuck knows Arnold.

Are they all on drugs

😂😂😂🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🥶🥶🥶🤕🤕🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

ArnoldWhatshisknickers Tue 03-Sep-19 11:29:02

Don't know about them, littlebrowndog but I'm starting to wonder if I'm just stuck in a permanent bad trip.

Which would be weird as I've always avoided hallucinogens.

DreadPirateLuna Tue 03-Sep-19 11:32:48

I identify as a non-landlubber engaged in non-legal trading grin

I liked the below from twitter

If top of your list defending trans rights includes conforming to fucking out
dated gender stereotypes and telling women to shut up and stay home if they don’t agree you can fuck right off and just keep fucking going til you get to Canada.

picklemepopcorn Tue 03-Sep-19 11:34:50

Do they not see how this looks to people who are, you know, not on glue?

littlbrowndog Tue 03-Sep-19 11:34:57

I feel like shouting all the time

Fuck off to Canada

woman19 Tue 03-Sep-19 14:13:29

Yeah absolutely ridiculous; next thing they'll be forcing an illegal coup on the country.

hmm

If it's a choice between the Brexist Incels in current charge of this country and the Green party I'd choose the Greens every time.

I can't breathe! No, really, I am having difficulty processing that! It has taken my breath away.
