A Linguist on the story of gendered pronouns

Including: Why It's Okay To Use 'They' for one person.

My linguistics is nowhere near good enough to critique this article (and there's good stuff in the comments that expands on it, thereby breaking the First Law of the Internet), but it makes really, really interesting reading, even if you only understand every other paragraph.

Welcome to my world

This journal is my home on Dreamwidth and I'm still unpacking. Don't mind the boxes and try not to trip over any duct tape.
