mamoru: I wonder if it is acceptable to such people to not use any pronouns at all."Jayne here was just on Jayne's way to Jayne's car to get Jayne's backpack."Because no, I'm not going to waste my time learning the pronouns of the day in order to be politically correct, not until a consistent set is decided upon and integrated into the language. Of course, considering I don't live in the United States any more (and likely won't again), I highly doubt I'll run into this issue./genuine curiosity: is this a thing at all outside of the States? Not being genderqueer or whatever (I live in Thailand; gender identity seems to be rather confused here more than anywhere else I've ever lived), but getting uptight about which pronouns are used...
Mark Ratner: Uhh, you spelled 'Jane' wrong. Your argument is still valid, but still...
ElFugawz: This is not a hipster thing. This is a thing for a few people who have studied it a lot and talked to others who have done the same. It would somewhat akin to a group of doctors coming to a consensus that everyone should use precise medical terms instead of common terms.I am all for non-gendered pronouns, but having more gendered (or genderqueer) pronouns is impractical and will only emphasize more the ideas of gender.
ThatDarkFellow: I just don't farking care at this point. Everyone wants to be separated into their own group, but they want to attack anyone who acknowledges they've separated themselves into their own groups.
Lsherm: This is, in every sense of the term, white people problems. Not in the usual sense of the term where it refers to white people, but in the broader sense of the term where it refers to people with such a narcissistic worldview that other, bigger problems are overshadowed by your dogmatic insistence that everyone cater to your needs every waking second. Let's call it "OBX" problems.It's like biatching about the catering at a benefit for homeless people.

Canton: "Ou" is French for "or." On the one hand, that sort of makes sense in the hypersensitive guy's context. On the other hand, why not just use "their?"
RealAmericanHero: so catering to transgendered people is being hipster now? fark y'all
DarkSoulNoHope: You know what bothers me about Hipsters and their gender definitions?[stuffhipstersdontlike.files.wordpress.com image 850x680]I CAN'T DEFINE THE GENDERS OF THESE THREE PEOPLE!!! (who are supposedly posing for their band photo) That person on the left looks mostly like a guy (looks almost like Michael Cera, IMO), cept for the breasts, makes me wonder is it transgendered and if so, which gender is it going for and which gender did it change from? What the fark is that thing in the middle supposed to be, Linus or Peppermint Patty? The person on the right looks most likely to be male, but considering how the other two are, I don't want to even make a distinction because they certainly don't!/Even in my most oddly frilly frocked poet shirts, you can still identify my Victorian styled Goth arse as male and one who's straight (yes, I think that's weird too)//Yes I like wearing that stuff///will still put down hipsterwear for either being too confusing and/or stealing other subculture's superficial appearance while acting like a douchebag towards the same subcultures they stole from
