Two more weeks until classes start and one night I was at the campus pub. The people were diverse and the conversation was lively. It was broadly social and political. As I continued to listen, I noticed how people use the word they: “They caused the fiscal cliff,” “They just block every proposal,” “They report biased news”, “Women, they act this way,” “Men, they act this way”.
