THE TRAILER FOR THE LIVE ACTION KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE
MY WHOLE LIFE HAS LED UP TO THIS MOVIE
“Well, right back at him!”
Two of my favorite ladies
you use singular they all the time
someone’s knocking on the door, i wonder what they want
there’s a person waving their hands at me from over there but i can’t hear them
does mysterycop follow you? i love their username
can you tell whichever person was in the bathroom last to please close the door behind them on their way out?
they IS properly, officially used in the english language to refer to a single individual person, quite a lot, in a plethora of different scenarios
all the opposition comes when it’s suggested that you can still use they once you’ve seen the person or heard their name, because you know someone’s gender once you’ve seen them or heard their name, of course
the opposition is not grammatical
Also it’s not a new thing. It’s in Shakspere.
"There’s not a man I meet but doth salute me / As if I were their well-acquainted friend." —The Comedy of Errors
"Arise; one knocks. / … / Hark, how they knock!” —Romeo and Juliet
“‘Tis meet that some more audience than a mother, since nature makes them partial, should o’erhear the speech.” —Hamlet
maybe i’m a goddamn bleeding heart hippie liberal but i’m totally down with paying an extra .50 cents for a thing of fries if the person who makes me those fries doesn’t have to work 3 jobs just to survive.
Reminder that while the concept of virginity is technically a social construct, your sexual debut is still allowed to be special to you, and you are still allowed to wait and want to make it meaningful, and your self-perception is still allowed to change after you have sex. Just as long as you’re doing these things for yourself, and not because someone told you that you should.
You do you.
