english is not a language with a gender system

at least in most dialects, english is a language with a pronoun system that encodes animacy (usually) and three possible pronoun sets for singular humans, two associated (flexibly) with social genders, one with a special grammatical purpose of gender/referent neutrality

in some speaker’s dialects this pronoun system is modular i.e. new pronouns are added as needed

I use he pronouns. Don't show me pictures with creepy faces in them.

I post a lot about linguistics, some silly shit- cat gifs and the like- whiny text posts, things that make me angry, and every once in a while a good song.

I also run a blog called Misandrist Music as my drag persona, Ms. Andrea Dworkit. It's exactly what it says on the label. You should check it out!
