Collapsed Bank Gave Gender Pronoun “Lecture” 5 Months Before Disaster 

( )- When Silicon Valley Bank failed on Sunday, clients were so alarmed that they withdrew over $10 billion in deposits, prompting the federal government to take over Signature Bank, making it the third-greatest bank failure in U.S. history. 

One hundred eighty days before its failure, Scott Shay, the chairman of Signature Bank, sponsored a workplace conference during which employees were educated on how to pronounce gender-neutral pronouns.  

Maybe their time could have been better spent on other issues, like banking. 

Employees learned how to pronounce “Ze” and “Hir,” among other crucial pronouns. 

According to Shay, Signature Bank was “the first bank in the United States to have an openly homosexual individual on our board,” a reference to the late Democratic representative for Massachusetts, Barney Frank. 

Signature Bank ran a “Social Impact” series, one of which was to learn all about pronouns. The symposium featured “genderqueer trans masculine person” Finn Brigham, a corporate counsel on gender issues headquartered in Manhattan. 

Brigham instructed the employees on the correct usage of a plethora of saying, “I don’t know whether there’s anybody in the Signature Bank world, but undoubtedly you have customers who use ‘they/ them’ as pronouns.”  

The pronouns are chosen to be neutral with regard to gender. 

“Ze” is another pronoun that does not specify a gender, he said. That’s why we say things like, “The other half of it is hir, which is spelled H-I-R.” 

For Signature Bank, “sustainability, diversity, equality, inclusion, community participation, employee development, employee health and safety, and any other environmental, social, or governance-related efforts” were all important ways to show their support for wokery. 

Just like we said the other day, Signature Bank has been criticized for spending millions of dollars on cringeworthy “woke” music videos and TV programs about themselves, leading some to wonder whether the money might have been better invested elsewhere. 

When the bank shut off President Trump’s accounts after the event at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, it showed its devotion to regime narratives. 

Maybe we should learn that we shouldn’t invest our money in “awake banks,” but because they’re all basically the same, that’s not easy to do.
