    ^^^
    thanks. Now I’m kind of tempted to go back to Germán lessons but yeah it’s such a tough language and even more so if you’re not living in a German speaking place which sort of forces you to...
  4. You’re right I’d forgotten about das Kind. Do you...

    You’re right I’d forgotten about das Kind. Do you use the “es” pronoun to refer to people too? My German is super rusty at this point. I wouldn’t be surprised if German already came with a solution...

    Do you mean the daily wire piece that was posted in this thread (link to the post here:...
  6. I mean yeah he’s a pop star, not Kurt cobain....

    I mean yeah he’s a pop star, not Kurt cobain. They’re (had to correct myself) a cheesy mainstream ballad singer. Selling out is the point.

    The singular they has been around since he 14th century. It wasn’t until the 19th that it was discouraged as “incorrect”. I still think it’s easier to adopt a new usage for a word that already exists...
  11. Well no because it is for things or animals we...

    Well no because it is for things or animals we have no relation with, not people. it is like “das”/“es” in German, you wouldn’t ever use it for people.
  12. Yeah the “x” really doesn’t work with Spanish...

    Yeah the “x” really doesn’t work with Spanish pronunciation, it’s just clunky and weird.
  13. I don’t really get the needto transform language...

    I don’t really get the needto transform language to make it more inclusive, but I’m not transgender so I get that it’s not about what I want, and if someone wants me to use a certain pronoun, I will....
  14. ^^^^ i know but it’s the only gender neutral...

    ^^^^
    i know but it’s the only gender neutral alternative that has any chance of gaining any traction though. Good luck trying to make 'ze', 'zir' or'zem' happen...

    As for Sam, good for them....
