@garfiald of all the languages I'd fight, French is number fucking one.

@garfiald my French is really solid still (haven't studied in years, but studied long enough that it just kind of stuck)... however I learned all the gendered garbage of course and I was so fascinated to hear about the neutral forms developing over the past few years. I would really like to be able to "be" nonbinary in French, so I'm wondering if there's a good primer anywhere that you'd recommend?

@wicche hmm yes I posted one like a year ago let me see if I can find it

@garfiald oh hell yeah I was hoping someone had come up with -euxe for -eux/euse endings, this is perfect

@garfiald us french enbies gotta stick together in this garbage language

@garfiald is gender-neutral french l'interdit francais?
