For the people that don't believe in genders or don't associate with a specific gender, how do you feel about using words such as "his", "hers", "him", "he" and "she"?
For many people they are simple, everyday words eg: “I saw him yesterday” but many people don’t associate or believe in genders and so I wonder, if you are one of those people do you object to being called “him” or “her”?
Personally, despite my tomboy tendancies I have always been comfortable with the fact that I am female and, for the most part, have always associated myself with being female. I don’t have a problem with being labeled in this way because, to me, it is so simple.
Up until very recently I was ignorant of the fact that many people don’t belive in or associate with specific genders. Of course I was aware of people that felt they were trapped in the “wrong body” but these people still associate with a gender even if they are not in that genders body.
Apologies if this question sounds extremely ignorant. I am just wondering where the the line is when it comes to labelling because even something as simple as calling someone a “he” is labelling right?
