You’re = you are
Your = Belonging to you; of you; related to you
Why do people not know the difference? I mean, I can understand what people are saying when they write “your” instead of “you’re”, but, honestly, figure this crap out. It’s not that hard. Let me explain how these two totally different, yet, similar sounding words work.
Tyson: Hello, Robert.
Robert: Hello, Tyson.
Tyson: How are you today?
Robert: I am good. How are you?
Tyson: Great! You’re kinda gay, Rob. FYI.
I use the word “you’re” because I’m saying what Robert is and NOT saying what is his.
Now, if I were to write “Great, your kinda gay.” That would mean that I was saying Robert’s “kinda gay”, which doesn’t make any damned sense.
Maybe people just don’t know how to spell, or maybe they are trying to abbreviate the phrase “you are” by just writing “your”, but little do people know that “your” has another meaning entirely, and, in turn, look like idiots. IDIOTS.
Sometimes, we abbreviate words in conversational writing (ex. gonna, doin, whatcha, u, peeps, lol, lolz, idk, stfu, rofl, roflmao, 8===D). This is fine because all those examples I listed do not have other meanings.
Please, for the sake of my future children and grandchildren and illegitimate children, do not ruin the English language any more than it already has been ruined. Please.
