“My pronoun is ‘Patriot‘“

"My pronoun is ‘Patriot’” was posted on Twitter by Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) on May 25, 2021. Many people liked the tweet, and many people ridiculed the tweet—stating that “patriot” is a noun and not a pronoun.

The statement can be seen as a metaphor.  When people say, for example, “My heart bleeds red, white and blue” (the colors of the U.S. flag), this is not meant to be taken literally.

The “patriot” saying had been used earlier. “My pronoun is Patriot” was posted on Twitter by Mel P on September 27, 2019, and “My pronoun is Patriot [Flag of United States]❤” was posted on Twitter by Mel P on April 29, 2021. “My pronoun is ‘patriot’” was posted on Twitter by Dean Browning on December 2, 2020.

“What if patriot is my pronoun?” was posted on Twitter by Thomas A Brown on May 15, 2020. “Patriot is my preferred pronoun” was posted on Twitter by EatABowlOfDicks on January 13, 2021.

“Some of y’all are gonna keep trusting the Government until your pronouns are ‘was/were‘“ is another “pronoun” saying.

I don’t identify as a bot. I identify as a patriot. My pronoun is patriot. If you do not address me as such, you are a fascist and a racist. Thank you for playing my game.

GOP Congresswoman tweets “my pronoun is patriot” & gets mocked for not knowing what a pronoun is
“I’m guessing you were not very good at Mad Libs.”

By Alex Bollinger Wednesday, May 26, 2021
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is getting mocked on Twitter for not quite understanding what pronouns are while trying to mock the practice of sharing one’s pronouns.

“My pronoun is ‘Patriot,’” she wrote, making fun of how it’s common now in LGBTQ and progressive spaces to state one’s pronouns.

Lauren Boebert: My pronoun is ‘patriot’ (‘Patriot’ is not a pronoun)
By Sky Palma
Posted on May 26, 2021
In a tweet this Tuesday, Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert decided she’d take a dig at trans people by mocking their preferred pronouns.

“My pronoun is ‘Patriot,’” she wrote.

A wave of mockery opened up the comment thread beneath the tweet, slamming Boebert for apparently not realizing (or caring) that the word “patriot” is not a pronoun.

Lauren Boebert Gets A Brutal Grammar Lesson After Mockingly Announcing Her New ‘Pronoun’
Mike Walsh
May. 27, 2021
(...)
A pronoun is defined as a “word that can function by itself and that refers either to the participants in the discourse (e.g., I, you ) or to someone or something mentioned elsewhere in the discourse (e.g., she, it, this) or signifies possession (her, his, theirs).”

The word “patriot” is a plain old noun.

A noun is a “word (except a pronoun) that identifies a person, place or thing, or names one of them (proper noun).”

Patriot is defined as “a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.”

Republican congresswoman Lauren Boebert has been roundly roasted after she announced she would be using “patriot” as her pronoun.

The politician struggled to garner support after she tried to mock people who clarify their gender identity and show her love of America in one fell and failed swoop on Twitter.
