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)

in Swedish we use "hen" which is meant to sound like the gendered "han" and "hon". it's a new word, but it got widely accepted pretty fast

@em I remember a bunch of English speakers thinking that "hen" was the word, translated into Swedish, that they were using and Americans were like UGH THAT iS A *FEMALE* CHICKEN
