hey i'm really curious about gender-neutral pronouns in different languages. english has "they", plus a bunch of different neopronouns. what do you use in your language?

(boosts would be great to cast a wider net on this, thx)

@em You may want to look at Tagalog (Filipino). My Filipina SO, when speaking English, gets a little confused by gendered pronouns. In Tagalog, daughter is "anak na babae", child who is female, anak has no gender. I am not fluent in the language, sadly

@acrata oh yeah i googled and it looks like tagalog doesn't have gendered pronouns

@em @acrata yup, Filipino/Tagalog speaker here, the third person pronoun siya (possessive kanya) is nongendered.
