Thanks weeks for adding me in!

I prefer if people use female pronouns at me, or at least stay gender neutral if in doubt ('tis only polite). I will not take offence unless I correct someone and they ignore it. It doesn't normally bother me, but for some reason it has been a little lately. It's because y'all are whippersnappers nowadays ;)

Okay, I'll stop being difficult. I'm male. Call me he/him/his. Or it, if you want. That's about equal with the male pronouns.

I honestly think it would be easier if it were organized by gender and alphabetical order. So consider that a suggestion.

Easier for...what? Alphabetical sorting is incredibly easy, and for what I think the list is intended (that is, knowing what to refer to a person as) it is real easy too.

What I'm saying is it might be easier to look and see the names listed under gender like this:

FEMALE: (She/her/hers)

A
B
C
etc.

MALE: (He/him/his)

A
B
C
etc.

But why? That's the sole purpose of the list; to disambiguate gender. Sorting by gender would be like sorting a dictionary by meaning.

Oh I get it, so I wouldn't have to type "he/him/his" "she/her/hers" "they/ze" etc every time. Yeah, I could look for ways to abbreviate that part a bit but I don't think it's really an issue ^^ If it's about clarity, I can try to make it a bit neater.

Ah, so you're saying that Weeks should have sorted them into male/female at the start, to save time. Problem: Nobody wants to look through two lists. And what about people who don't mind, or people who are "AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH"?

But, apart from being late, annoying and sorting a dictionary by meaning (heh, nice one Vector 0)... Good idea!

That was a joke. I didn't mean to offend. If you are offended, I am truly sorry.

I think I have only ever referred to you as 'she'. Apologies.

It's probably because I confuse you and TS
