Apparently we’re alone OP. I really appreciate the opportunity to learn and help other people feel comfortable. Why the hell do I care what you want to be called - as long as you are happy that’s all that matters.

Anyone who is interested in gender neutral language in some other languages this article is interesting.

Humanity's evolution to chaos. Soon up will be down and down will be up just because people feel like it and we should all accept it.

@manager1 yes shim could be used all the time. It’s new. So it’s not like asking everyone to change what they know about the English language

Because it’s just so hard to understand to me is all.

I refuse to use these made up pronouns 🤷🏼‍♂️. A man is a man, a woman is a woman. Transsexuals and other “non-binary” “queers” are sorta like a black man choosing to identify as Chinese.

like

@K2: Man transforming to woman = mansplaining? This logic is truly something else. What do you call woman transforming to man then? 😂

And I guess intersex people are not even people in your eyes then. How could they be, if they are not born into the man / woman binary?

I could think of a lot better words all of which have 4 letters as well.
