Thanks ;__; I just need to… I dunno… get my shit together or something.
It’d just be easier if I knew how and that’s why asked for other people’s opinions/help here.
umm sweetie grammar is an illusion created by the government to make us less fun and creative with our words
It’s not even considered grammatically incorrect why the fuck do people keep saying this.
Singular “they/them” is 100% correct and has been since the fucking middle ages. Geoffrey Chaucer, who is regarded as the fucking father of English literature, even used singular “they/them” and it has been considered acceptable since then. George Elliot, Lewis Carroll, Walt Whitman, Jane Austen, William Thackeray, Oscar Wilde, C.S. Lewis, and even William fucking Shakespeare have all used singular “they/them” in their writing. EVEN THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE FEATURES SINGULAR THEY/THEM.
You use a singular “they/them” when you’re implying that the subject in question could be any gender (or could be any # of people). When you use “anybody” or “one person” you use “they/them” BECAUSE THE SUBJECT HAS NOT BEEN DECLARED MALE OR FEMALE.
Like holy shit this argument is worn out and not even remotely correct. Transphobes need to stop using it and just admit that they are transphobes that only have a grasp of the grammar rules they learned in 3rd grade.
WHOOP THERE IT IS
