@wortschatz Are you making fun of me, you bot?
gender-neutral german grammar
here are some words and grammatical constructs in german for talking about someone whose pronouns you don't know, and for talking about groups of people without having to exclude nonbinary folks. these aren't set in stone or anything, but it's what my friends and i use and it works pretty well for us
e.g. "person hat gesagt..." [they said...]
replaces the less inclusive "er oder sie"
e.g. "mensch kann das machen" [one can do that]
replaces the male-defaulting "man"
note: it's possible to avoid this construct altogether by using passive voice
e.g. "mitbewohnis" [roommates]
note: for more formal speech or writing you might want to use
e.g. "arbeiter_innen" [workers]
replaces the less inclusive "arbeiter und arbeiterinnen"
e.g. "was für eins süßi" [what a cutie]
replaces the male-defaulting "ein"
@distel Your bike looks very cool! How did you get the protection there? Did you knit it in place? Or does this part of the bike open somehow? I'm so confused.
@readytherhinos As far as I know, not really. If there are facial hair in your family you would be likely to get the same amount. But they grown kind of slowly (mine are still discreet enough that people don't pay attention to them), so I guess it's possible to stop T after a while and get rid of the hair some other way.
@readytherhinos I am! Since 6 months. Open for any question

@distel Metal as hell
Insult against men (just an awkward conversation)
This old friend I didn't see since long: I have a vegan anarchist feminist friend who reminds me of you! And we spend time together saying that men are trash! Because men are trash!
Me, a transmasc person trying to pass as a man in most of daily life: uhm… by the way…
@benni I didn't know her, but I downloaded by mistake her full channel instead of only the concerned video and she's great. Thanks for the recommandation!
@distel Nice! Enjoy!
@distel Good night!

Iiiii just learned about the Rockstar programming language.
It has pronouns: it, he, she, him, her, they, them, ze, hir, zie, zir, xe, xem, ve, and ver.
"undefined doesn’t sound very rock’n’roll so we use mysterious instead."
"wrong, no and lies are valid aliases for false"
"poetic literals allow the programmer to simultaneously initialize a variable and express their innermost angst"
@maunzi I love it so much! That's so cool! Now I want to try it
