This is why the Chinese call American SJWs baizuos. In the United States, approximately 3% of the population identifies as non-binary. So all of the political pandering that takes place with regards to non-binary individuals, isn’t for the non-binary individuals themselves. No, the political pandering surrounding non-binary individuals, is primarily for the predominately straight fringe left, who view the LGBTQ+ community as their pets and/or mascots. So they invent silly pronouns for 63 genders, so that SJWs can pretend that they’re offended when normal people can’t remember even 5 of them.
Because gender identity is exactly what fans of Star Wars want to read about, right? It’s just another example of an opportunist author using the Star Wars brand name as a carrier wave to push his own political agenda. Nothing more.
