    It's absolute nonsense.

    I don't see preferred pronouns as being any different to Rebecca wanting to be called Becca. :dontknow:

    It's stupid.
    male and female and a few acceptable others but other than that no.
    I don't prefer being called male or whatever it's just what i am so that's that.

    That clip tho.

    I find anything pronounced Ze a little bit weird but nobody's ever asked me to use it.

    "They" is a perfectly good gender-neutral pronoun that's been used for centuries.

    I heard that people use 'They' when they're bigender or whatever.

    Oh great. So now not only will I forget someone's name, I'll forget their preferred pronoun too.

    No, not really.

    But, if someone wanted me to use that pronoun for them, I would.

    I don't see why any beyond a completely gender neutral "they" is ever needed.

    I understand that referring to people using their preferred pronouns is the polite thing to do, if that's what you mean? :confused:

    I just don't understand it at all. What is "ze" "xe"?.

    Some people are getting far too desperate to be different in today's world and it's taking the piss.

    I can't even ask for no gherkins on my McDonald's burger because they "don't do special requests', what makes these special little snowflakes think they can request that people call them "XE" just because they want to identify as anything from a currency exchange website to a Jaguar sports car.

    I understand them.

    They mean: this person is probably annoying.
