Tennessee Dem's to sue over redistricting. Using redistricting to raise money, but not much. And what about that "he/him" closing?

Jan. 13, 2021- Suprise, Suprise! The Tennessee Democrat Party plans to sue challenging the redistricting. Here is the text of the fundraising I received today:



In case you missed it, Republicans rigged Tennessee maps in their favor, and we’re preparing to sue. With these new, unconstitutional maps, 1 in 4 Tennesseeans will be discriminated against and underrepresented.


“Equality of population is still the principal consideration.” – Supreme Court of Tennessee, Lockert v. Crowell, 1982


This principle is what should be at the center of drawing district lines. The Republicans’ maps fail to do this, while the maps Democrats proposed were mathematically and proportionally superior in every way. It is possible to draw fair maps, but Tennessee Republicans chose themselves over equality.

We need to raise $30,000 by the end of January to mount our lawsuit — can you chip in now to help us get there? 

It continues with a choice of hitting a button to donate $25, $50, $100, $250, or other. and then this:

 I am not surprised that the Democrats are suing.  I am assuming the Republicans knew what they were doing, had adequate legal counsel when drawing the lines, and anticipated this. I have a couple questions:

#1. Why are Dems shooting to raise such a middling amount of money? If the shoe was on the other foot, Republicans would need $300,000.

#2.  What in the heck does the term "he/him" below Hendrell Remus's signature mean.  I am guessing that in the woke world of Democrats it has become a thing to let readers know the preferred pronoun one prefers to be used when being referenced.  I guess this is to show "he/him" is the preferred pronoun Mr. Remus desires as opposed to "her/She," or "them/they" or "it." 

If there is any Democrat reading this blog post, please enlighten me on these two points.
