1673. Why some pronouns are proper

Stephan had a reasonably well-paid job until the company was sued by Stephanie for using the wrong pronoun. It was obvious that it should have been “she” and “her”?

Stephan was an expert at forging references. It was a handy skill to have when looking for a job. But now there simply wasn’t a need for it. Enough money had been made.

    Stephan/Stephanie is a non-binary, post-gender, post-archetypal, post-human who identifies as 10% masculine, 10% feminine and 80% androgynous. How could the company possibly not know that! Aren’t we living in a trans-cultural, post-metamorphosis, post-educated, super-evolved, climate change resolved, one-nation world that is controlled by a non-binary, 10% asexual, 59% queer, 1% straight, 30% post-sexual, socialistic AI called Alex(a)? Well, I’m just glad it turned out well for Stephan/Stephanie in the end!

      I think you’ve summed it up! Apparently mushrooms have countless different genders. I have no idea why Nature would have confined mammals to a mere two three.

          You have so thrown the cat among the pigeons that I no longer can presume that “ped” stands for “paedophile” but for something to do with how many legs we have….
