    What are your thoughts on the increased use of 'gender fluid' and 'gender neutral' pronouns? Do you think it will eventually become normalised to care about peoples individual preference?

    Also, people who ask to be called "xe or ze" will society pander to this?

    My lecturer ends his emails with "(pronouns: they/them/their)" and avoids calling people either he or she?

    I want to understand it but honestly I just see this as a bunch of special snowflakes trying to be different by creating their own ****. Where did "xe" even come from?

    I've already given my opinion on this, but I shall say it again for those in the back; I'll use the appropriate pronoun for the person, but I still find it a tad pointless.

    A few people taking themselves too seriously, and a few more indulging them; is not a movement.

    He/She/Xe (cause that's been one for a very long time) are fine, otherwise you're just being whiney.

    I think it just bs.
    If you are transgender, I'll address you by the social construct according to the gender you would like to be assigned to. (This would only happen if you look very much like what you say you are).

    seems like more right wingers get more shouty about it than actual advocates.

    It doesn't inconvenience me to use a person's correct pronouns. It's their life and I have no wish to cause them distress, much like I wish them to leave me alone in my life and be kind.
