I am genuinely so irritated by the semantic slippage of "pronouns" into "any language that is trans of gender."
somebody calls me "sir" and apologizes for getting my "pronouns" wrong.
somebody notes that many Latin sentences don't include "pronouns" in a question about gender-neutrality in Latin, a language which does gender both things and people.
somebody says "I don't use pronouns and I don't know anybody who does use any," a sentence which contains five pronouns.
language change, including expansions in the meaning of words, is in general morally, 'factually,' and 'rationally' neutral; linguists, and I was for awhile training to be a linguist, describe rather than prescribe; whatever.
I think THIS semantic slippage is stupid as hell. trans people said "preferred pronouns," a fixed phrase with a specific meaning, and cis people who had previously known that "I" is a pronoun were like "pronouns are when it's gender and words, got it"
