Gender pronouns for our players!

Postby Weeks » Sun Dec 12, 2010 9:24 pm UTC

Because we shouldn't sidestep or let it get awkward; we should ask.

What set of gender pronouns do you use for yourself/would like us to use for you? I'm okay with he/him/his.

If you'd like to change your listed pronouns, drop me a PM or post here. Alternatively, ask a mod for help.

I am agendered and prefer gender-neutral pronouns (they, ze, etc.; whichever you prefer.) I don't mind terribly if someone calls me "he" or "she".

Nice idea for a topic - perhaps it might be worth putting a list in the OP when we've had a good number of replies?

Anyways, I am male and prefer male pronouns.

We are male, and like being referred to with plural pronouns.

...

OK, fine. He/him/his.

Yes, She can be quite troublesome that way. But hey, y'all gotta admit it: that's why we love Her. :mrgreen:

hmmmm, girl!entropy...

Female pronouns are probably appropriate for me, but if you address me with male pronouns all I'll do is view it as an interesting psychological experiment and get all contemplative about gender for a while. Usually I'm too distracted/interested to even correct people. XD

I think they were referring to your being mod in that game (therefore requiring capitals) and not in this thread (therefore not requiring capitals). I've been erring on the side of caution, myself. As to gender, if you read back I think you'll see you required no consistency in that regard ;D

Postby MasterOfAll » Mon Dec 13, 2010 6:51 am UTC

I am quite comfortable with male pronouns. I do not like to be referred to by plural pronouns like 'they', although I do sometimes enjoy using plural pronouns for myself, like 'we'.

@Weeks, I think that list is going to get longer and longer. Would it be too much trouble for you to put it in alphabetical order?

Spoiler:
I used a list sorter on the internet and quickly generated this . . .
    Adacore -- he/him/his
    Azrael001 -- he/him/his
    Boreeas -- he/him/his
    Elvish Pillager -- they/ze > he/him/his = she/her/hers
    Entropy -- he/him/his > others (capitalized when he's a mod.)
    Krong -- he/him/his > plural pronouns
    Misnomer -- he/him/his
    RoadieRich -- he/him/his
    Silknor -- he/him/his
    VectorZero -- he/him/his
    Weeks -- he/him/his > she/her/hers
    ameretrifle -- she/her/hers > others
    b.i.o -- he/him/his
    greenlover -- he/him/his
    mpolo -- he/him/his
    roband -- he/him/his
edit: I have no idea why the sorter I used thinks every Capitalized letter should come before every lowercase one, but . . .

There is a readily available method for calling a mod's attention to a specific post... It's called the "report" button.

Other than using singular gendered pronouns, I don't have a preference. Just use whatever seems to suit best.
