Fun fact: the more you use gender-neutral pronouns, the less sexist you become.
Really. There’s studies done on languages and countries who predominantly use gender-neutral pronouns and how it correlates to overall happiness between genders. Gender-neutral languages are the happiness. Hmm. Less sexism sounds great.
Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”
By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:
- The entire state of Rhode Island
- Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
- Pacific Islanders
