   Maybe you get sued if you mention someone’s former pronoun these days. It seems to be the world we live in.

Oh, this is "war on Christmas" level stupid.

If I call you a c*** can you sue me ?  I suppose so.

The only odd thing about this is that the article I read this news in refused to even mention the name "Ellen" so I had no idea who had changed their name, other than they are now known as "Elliot".

It's viewed as over-the-line to mention someone's former name, so they can't even say "The artist formerly known as..."

It's offensive to say Ellen Page changed their name to Elliot Page?  So saying what happened is offensive?  It's offensive to even say Elliot used to identify as female in gender and went by the name Ellen?  Do they have to burn all the old DVD's that say Ellen Page on it?  Do they have to erase the footage and insert Elliot Page?

CTV news tonight referred to Elliot as formerly Ellen tonight.

The Telegraph was the only paper I saw that went with comprehension first. 

"Inception star Ellen Page comes out as transgender and changes name to Elliot"

I don't see what was so hard about that.

1. It's offensive to say Ellen Page changed their name to Elliot Page? 
2. So saying what happened is offensive? 
3. It's offensive to even say Elliot used to identify as female in gender and went by the name Ellen?  Do they have to burn all the old DVD's that say Ellen Page on it?  Do they have to erase the footage and insert Elliot Page?
1. Nothing is universally offensive.  Are you asking if some are offended then the answer is yes.
2. Offensive to some people yes.
3. I guess the answer is yes it's offensive and no they probably aren't going to do that.

I'm not really here to explain to you that some people in the world find some things offensive or to provide cultural examples of things different people find offensive or what have you.

Some are offended by pork, or having a hamburger with a milkshake, or wearing a white poppy or wearing a hat in the legion or...

Go out into the world and take in the wonder.  It's so much more interesting than going on the internet and trying to catch me (a friend) in a contradiction.

There are people who are easily offended, people who find it hilarious to watch people be offended, and people who get mad about people getting offended. Not such a world of wonder after all.
