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.
My pronoun is “Patriot”.

People on Twitter were not impressed.
I’m guessing you were not very good at Mad Libs

"Patriot" is not a pronoun.
A Patriot would have condemned the Jan 6 insurrection, not encouraged it. pic.twitter.com/mRbKNx6IyF

Boebert’s main point was an attack on transgender people, and she has a long history of opposing LGBTQ rights. She led a press conference outside the Capitol when Congress was voting on the Equality Act, where she went on an unhinged rant full of fake claims about transgender pre-teens and told reporters she is raising her sons “to be men” and she is “proud of that.”
“The so-called Equality Act, which we all know is the Democrats using a play on words,” Boebert said during a media appearance this year. “There is nothing about equality in that act. If anything, it’s the supremacy for gays, lesbians, and transves-hikes.”
She also took a brave stance against Spongebob Squarepants being gay. The cartoon character has not come out.
