However they want really. Some might be comfortable with gendered terms, but then there are attempts at neutral ones that they may want to use.

When you talk about them say they/them. When calling their name, maybe ask what they like. Or make up a nickname.

so if you are talking about that person you would say like

their favorite color is blue
this is like an example
so you use they/ them / theirs
because they don't identify a specific gender like male of female
or you could make up a nickname for them that is neutral

I think they mean when they’re speaking about their Aunt Ethel, what should replace the aunt bit?

Hmm, I'm not sure. Maybe Auncle (a combination of both) or Titi; neutral, from the Spanish for Aunt (Tia) and Uncle (Tio).

Probably best to just ask which terms they're most comfortable with- it will depend on the person.
