Consider the bromide I found at tumblr while holding your nose:
Pronoun question. I need your opinions.
anythingnonbinary:S/H/IT works for me…pretty much sums up the idiocy of the gender neutral imbeciles currently all the angry rage in Psilly Pseudo-Academicland.
I try to refer to everybody with gender neutral pronouns because I feel it’s time the world stops seperating the world by sex/gender. Problem is I then realize if these people have requested and pointed out the gendered pronouns they prefer - I need to respect that. After all I would want people respecting my choice, but then I’m just going with the idea that people should be seperated and labeled by their sex/gender.
So I guess my question is, what do you guys think? Continue using gender neutral pronouns even though the person has made it clear which they prefer? Or respect their wishes and take into account that this is how the world is?
Submit your answer, put in my inbox if you want me to respond to it with my opinion as well, or just respond to this post :) Although chances are I might not see it if you do.
