Fran Itkoff volunteered at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for 60 years. She got involved because her late husband had MS.

But the other day the 90-year-old volunteer was forced to step down because she ran afoul of the Alphabet Activists.

Fran was confused when she saw that people were listing their preferred pronouns at the bottom of emails. So, she asked why – and that was a fatal mistake.

“I was confused, I didn’t know what it was, what it meant,” Itkoff told Libs of TikTok. “I’ve seen it on a couple of letters that had come in after the person’s name they had the pronouns, but I didn’t know what that meant.”

Itkoff was confused about how the “she/her” pronouns could be labeled as “all-inclusive” if it was referring to females and not males.

The manager of community engagement at MS told Fran that she was not inclusive enough.

“At the end of the day, end of the week, I got an email from her saying ‘they were sorry, but they had to ask me to step down as a volunteer for the MS society,” Itkoff claimed.

The elderly volunteer was accused of failing to abide by the agency’s diversity, equity and inclusion guidelines.

The National MS Society’s general counsel doubled down and said they expect all volunteers to abide by their inclusion policies. And no one should ever feel unsafe.

So, after 60 years of service – poor Fran got canned by a woman who felt it necessary to post her preferred pronouns in her email signature line.
