@owl I can see that. semi-related, I was just thinking to myself, if I could, I'd go for "no third person singular pronouns. don't talk about me." (for insecurity/social anxiety reasons rather than gender ones, that is)

they're *your* pronouns, so whatever you say they are, it's correct by default :)

I like robots, obsolete technology, and terrible puns.
