public note: i use terms like "man" and "dude" as fully gender neutral, please tell me if you are uncomfortable with this
@plausocks are you shitting me, fren? get that shit outta yr brain or scram, tbqh <3
@plausocks I wouldn't say anything if I didn't think you can change it ;)
@Efi i can but keep in mind i may slip up and this is not intentional
@plausocks as long as you're capable of saying "woops I fucked up" instead of "I just use it this way" you're cool
@Efi thats how i try to be. i dont want to be the person to be all like "lol sry thats who i am deal with it :)"
@plausocks sweet <3
@plausocks it's kinda marginalizing towards nonbinary and nonmale individuals, but I understand why it happens.
I just want people to make an *effort* to shift towards gender neutral terminology by default.
@eryn and this is exactly why i put this up. im trying my best to change my habits and use gender neutral terms or preferred terms but out of habit i tend to say dude or man and i genuinely want people to tell me if they dont like it
That's so me!
