Grammar Nazis

In California: Use the wrong pronoun, go to jail
Excerpt: In the state of California, calling someone a Grammar Nazi is now closer to being a statement of fact. Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill last Thursday which makes it a crime for you to “willfully and repeatedly” use the wrong pronoun, possibly resulting in a $1,000 fine or a year in prison. Currently, the law only applies to nursing homes and long-term care facilities, but, as is always the case with laws, this is only the beginning.
