what’s really amazing to me is that people are so afraid of body hair on women that even in a shaving commercial they won’t show a hairy leg. they demonstrate the razor by shaving a hairless leg. they show their product being completely useless instead of showing leg hair. it’s just crazy
i feel like ‘what’s your (preferred) pronoun?’ is just a more sugary version of ‘so what are you??’
at least it’s an educated question. god damn, y’all.
Yeah I am a bit confused and would love for someone (that means you, jimmykudos !) to explain to me. I thought asking “What’s your preferred pronoun?” is what to do, because it means you’re going to use whatever they tell you from then on. It seems respectable, and will ensure that both people are more comfortable afterwards. Obviously, asking something like: “What’s your real // original // birth pronoun?” is much ruder, right? And that seems to be much more like: “So what are you??”
What does one ask instead???
