    Most languages except modern German and English have are based in gender. The idea of using gender neutral pronouns reminds me of the push to ebonics. Where is that now? In NY, you could actually be insulting and get fined for being polite? I think i’ll add this to my pet peeve of pressing “1” for english!

What do you think?
