If slow-to-adapt "what is trans" Sweden can introduce a gender-neutral pronoun, and use it on government websites, in the news, etc, then I refuse to believe it's impossible elsewhere. It's definitely not that they are at the forefront of these things, or have a good track record on trans issues, or anything like that. Quite the opposite. Yet still there's "hen," so get to it, Germany and other places.

They're called pronouns in English because they have 3 cases, whereas regular, consumer-grade nouns only have 1.

*Sounds like a Dane instead*

Must take some effort to make a rhyming dictionary for English. Can't just look at the spelling like in other languages. But maybe there are good data sets available?

I'm curious why cryptic, country-specific timezone abbreviations are used

"The warrior achieved a state of spiritual unification with the bear or the wolf, which would frequently erupt in bouts of ecstatic fury. This bond was displayed to others by the warrior’s dressing [themself] in a ritual costume made from the hide of the animal, an outward reminder of [them] having gone beyond the confines of his humanity and become a divine predator."
