There ARE ACTUAL REAL MEN OUT THERE??!
THAT RESPECT WOMEN?

Quick, reblog this everywhere so we can learn and grow as a species!
Exactly the type of response guys should give when girls say no to anything, from dates-to sex.
Anonymous said: Do you feel that there's a point that pronouns become too ridiculous? Such as fairy or dragon pronouns?
It isn’t a matter of ridiculous. I believe any nounself/neo/themed pronouns break the laws governing how we communicate with the language, they are dehumanizing beyond “it”, and there are people with mental disorders that literally cannot understand these trendy pronouns.
I doubt a lot of people recognize even using they/them while you’re trying to get a job doesn’t work. Sadly the working world operates on the binary… sir/ma’am, he/she, male/female. That’s it. As the trans and nb communities are trying to gain acceptance in the world for nb recognition, when that goes through it’ll only be they/them pronouns and then it becomes a matter of how does an employer and all other employees remember something like that while focusing on their own jobs.
These “neopronouns” aka nounself pronouns are a trend, a fad…in a few years the people who use them will look back and go “wow, how childish”. Idk how old you are anon, but I’m a little bit older than the average Tumblr age… so my generation’s fads and trends are probably a little different than yours.
I hope that satisfies your question.
As a writer and linguist, let me explain a bit more.
The purpose of a pronoun, in any language, is to eliminate the need to repeat a noun over and over again. Take a look at these two sentences.
"Marie went to Marie’s mother’s house to bring Marie’s mother a cake."
"Marie went to her mother’s house to bring her a cake."
Which one of them was easier to read? Which one would you rather see in a book?
Nounself pronouns utterly defeat their own purpose. Let’s try another couple of passages:
"After another 5 billion years, our Sun will expand to the size of a red giant. Sol will boil away the Earth’s oceans and swallow earth up, along with Mercury and Venus, and maybe even Mars. Then sol will cool and collapse in on solself, until sol becomes a brown dwarf. Dwarf doesn’t give off enough light to be seen very far away."
"After another 5 billion years, our Sun will expand to the size of a red giant. It will boil away the Earth’s oceans and swallow it up, along with Mercury and Venus, and maybe even Mars. Then it will cool and collapse in on itself, until it becomes a brown dwarf. It doesn’t give off enough light to be seen very far away."
As you can see, it’s much easier to read - and write - when you don’t have to repeat the same nouns over and over again.
Of course, these are only the problems you have in English. Imagine trying to translate nounself pronouns into languages with different pronoun rules, like Spanish or Japanese. In Spanish (and a metric fuck-ton of other languages) verb conjugation depends on the pronoun being used, and in Japanese, there are *tons* of different rules, including rules about familiarity and status respective to the person you’re addressing or talking about. But there aren’t basic “he/she/they” pronouns - instead, you get what roughly amounts to “this person/thing” and “that person/thing”. And there’s about 4 or 5 different ways of saying “I” and “you”. There’s also another rule that you refer to someone by their name and a suffix (e.g. Kanoko-san) instead of a pronoun if you don’t know that person well. Japan’s weird like that. My point is, it’s just one of pretty much every other language that’s not English into which nounself is completely untranslatable.
