Try to remember that some people have a more complicated relationship with pronouns than you do.
Encouraging people in give pronouns in their bio is nice, but try not to be so heavy handed. It's rude to insist.
Instead, consider normalising the use of they/them for anyone who doesn't explicitly state their pronouns.
@InvaderXan Yet Japanese traditional and modern culture is heavily patriarchal. One thing I always asked myself is, are we missing a point focusing just on language?
is it still:
- couple of men : ils
- couple of women : elles
- couple of women and one man : ils?
this infuriated me in french class in secondary school
@StroomAfwaarts Yeah, that always bothered me too. Take 100 women and 1 man, and you need to say ils.
@pantransautie In modern Japanese, these are only ever used when talking about your boyfriend or girlfriend
Please? Like, this a lot. I'd prefer if there was a neutral default for when you don't know somebody's gender instead of having to out myself to strangers.
