I want to start using singular to highlight how stupid it sounds. They is my coworker. Can you imagine how many would quit being non-binary if you just made it sound stupid.

This doesn't make sense. It is clearly "they are". Everyone uses the singular they. It is not something new in the slightest. It has always been a gender neutral term and you all use it all day long I am sure.

"Omg someone just stabbed me!!! Oh they were just here, where'd they go??"

"Oh, I have a secret admirer. I wonder who they are/who it is?"

You know what would really clear up that confusion? Actual sex based pronouns. What a concept.

I don’t use it except in the rare “Someone left their keys behind” sense, when I don’t know the sex of the person involved. I have never encountered genderspecials offline, much less had to talk about them.

I just watched part of the latest season of Blown Away (glassblowing competition show on Netflix), and there’s a “non-binary” woman
on there (Grace) who basically just looks like a female version of 1980s Weird Al Yankovich and clearly is a WOMAN of course. I mean, you do you with the fashion, that’s great, but you are a woman not a walking manifestation of genderwoo.

The judges kept awkwardly talking about “oh, they had a little trouble with this piece because their first round of glass shattered. I hope they keep up the excellent work” or whatever and it was all very cringey with the grammatical weirdness of turning her into plural people, lol.

This woman had to bring up that she was “enby” constantly. She had some interesting pieces, but the enby crap was distracting— very much “look at me, look at me”!

How do you tell if someone is non binary?

Don't worry, they'll tell you repeatedly

How long until they decide you use "they is" and claim "they are" is misgendering?
