Hey guys, you both have the right to call eachother whatever the fuck you want.

Hard feelings are, of course, allowed, but it's really only a word, after all.

I will call you by whatever word I feel is appropriate at the time, not whatever word YOU think is appropriate.

And that is directed at both Trip0 and Kai, and also those of you who debate the use of E-prime.

Then call me whatever you want. Call me shithead if it really tickles your rocks in just the right way. I call me zhe and the people I actually give two shits about call me zhe. You don't like it? You don't matter. Deal.

so, if we don't feel like reprogramming our entire lingustic structure to suit your whim, we don't matter?

you know, I was trying really hard to not hate you, but you're making it impossible.

'Cos I'm an androgyne, and zhe (also; zhir) is a nice, gender-neutral pronoun, and one that sounds aesthetically pleasing to me.

Okay, I know I am bringing the drama llama on more when I say this, and I know it has before, but it needs to be said. I am an androgyne as well, a person of mixed gender identification. I also preffer non gendered pronouns.

But let me say this in big letters: I WILL NEVER EVER EXPECT ANY PERSON TO USE THEM. EVER.

Telling people they got to bend way for you and all kind of shit like that is stupid. I'll take he or she or even Hey YUO! but I will never ask someone to use a specific pronoun when reffering to me, and if someone asked which one I preffered, I might tell them, but more likely I would just say "which ever one is easier". Because anything different moves beyond asking for basic respect and into bigoted inferiority complex territory.

And because of all the statements in this thread, I feel stupid for suggesting to people on IRC which pronouns you preffered, because I asked in the first place, and I thought it was the polite thing to do in my case.

I am quickly loosing respect for you, androgyne or not.

"Slappy" works for me.

until the next time Slappy breaks out that broad brush to paint over "zher" (or is it "zhis"?) inferiority complex. Then I'm gonna start referring to Slappy as "Shitneck".

yeah, I do believe shitneck is technically a non-genderspecific reference.  Should be perfectly acceptable on all levels.

I hope ya'all don't lose any respect for me via association from this. This sort of behavior makes me, Rev. Michal and all other androgynes look bad.

Why does it make you look bad? As far as I can tell, Kaienne speaks for zirself... if people on this board (of all forums) label you as equal to Kaienne based on your secual identity, I think they have much larger issues.

Hell, I don't think Kaienne is doing too terribly. Zhe needs to chill out a bit and process some more data, but thats a helluva lot closer to clued than 99% of the people that I talk to on a daily basis.

Yeah, BMW, I don't think you have anything to worry about.  At least, not in my book.  And I am the leading authority on my book.

I'm not worried, but I am still pissed. This inferiority complex sorta behavior reminds me too much of those Harry Benjamin Syndrome people I learned about yesterday and all their slurs against transgenders and nazi words. If there is one thing being transgendered should teach a person, its understanding, and common curtesy. Expecting people to use pronouns that you are comfortable with is not curteous nor understanding. And it DOES reflect badly on the rest of us.

Perhaps in some areas, some boards, some societies... but surely not here. At least not where any REAL DISCORDIANS are concerned...  :wink:
