I know when I play female in games I want people to use female pronouns (I'm kinda big on RP), and I play female a lot in games.
When I play male in games I want people to use male in pronouns.

Also I really do use dude a lot if you hadn't noticed, I've never gotten complaints about this either, though sometimes people make fun of me for it. It really is a Californian thing.... Kinda like Hella or Hecka. I can tell you what part of California a person is from based on their use of these slang terms.

For a book, I think Moms suggestion would be best cause it would.... stand out more in written form.... if that makes sense. Less chance of the reader forgetting.

From what I've seen and read, most NB people know we live in a gender-binary world as it is today. They'd like to be able to be represented in the real world (additional gender selections on legal documents, for example) but often are not. They also understand that the average person is not familiar enough with the existence of NB genders, let alone to ask them their preference or address them in a gender-neutral way, and they understand that most people are just going to go with what they see by default.

Dude.... this is so stupid.... put NB designations on legal documents. It's that fucking easy. Like I have a choice of using Mr. I don't cause, that seems weird to me.... but like if I can pick that, why cant we get our heads out of our asses and just fix this shit....

also if it's that important, I would def modify what I do to show more support. If no one ever says anything, there's no way for me to know what they'd prefer ya know.

(just my 2 cents on the issue)

Thread reopened the unhelpful removed to the Pit.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
