Hi, I'm Crystal. I'm an enby chick who lives in the PNW. I am a wife guy, a communist, a Carly Rae Jepsen stan, and a rubiks cube speedsolver. I have a big old fluffy dog, and two cats whomst get all the cuddles. uh, guess I'm 30 now, and I've been on mastodon for like 2.5 years (august 2018 influx)
this post makes it seem like I just came across this topic, but I've been using "theirself" for a long time. Probably since I was a kid because it's a natural thing to assume exists
just an incredible video all around https://twitter.com/shrimp_delight/status/1452356854982459394?s=21
themselves vs theirself
so the current english language usage of "themselves" fully recognizes the word in its place when referring to a singular unknown or nonbinary person, but it also recognizes "theirself" as a nonstandard form made chiefly as a mistake.
Does anybody use "theirself" commonly? It seems natural enough to me, I could see it becoming fully recognized as an alternate or primary form in a singular context. what do people think?
I was just going to let Veritasium go into the dustbin, but then Tom Nicholas did a take down video of them and got responded to and I just can't let it go.
How do you go from making videos where you're so passionate to show the world how you can delay water freezing in a water bottle, to going out of your way to do propaganda for Bill Gates and Waymo? I feel like he's Evil Bill Nye
