I’m saying they’re harming the movement as a whole.
The bottom line is that we’re not at a point in our society yet, worldwide, where we can use pronouns like ‘him’ or ‘her’ or even ‘they’ for chrissakes when referring to trans and nonbinary individuals. Like people are being murdered and attacked and they’re having some very fucked up shit done to them just because they want out of the social construct that is gender, or they’re challenging people to re-think how they perceive gender and what gender means vs what sex is.
So like, realistically, if we can’t even convince people to use ‘they’ without bitching about how ‘they’ is somewhat difficult to fit into grammar, which it isnt btw, it functions perfectly fine as a pronoun, then how the fuck are you going to get those same bigoted, angry, hateful people to see someone going “I’m wolfkin, fae/faer/faeself pronouns” and be like “Ah yes, clearly this is something that we shouldn’t question?? Like I fuckin hate to be a blunt ass party pooper but I mean it’s not going to happen.
And yknow there are kids out there who are super idealistic and think that being continuously angry and aggressive about wanting sparklepronouns to be a widely accepted thing is actually going to change anything, which, it fucking won’t, especially if you’re looking at the way like… yknow, cis gay/lesbian/bi/pan/aro people are treated. LIKE FOR FUCKING REAL, people think that deviating from being cishet is still on some level “wrong” or bad or incorrect or something that can be cured. What in shit’s name makes you think that taking these struggles and attempting to put them on par with thinking you’re a fucking anime character is in any fucking way helping to advance the acceptance of anyone who is not cishet?
People are inherently shitty, that’s just the way of things. Maybe in the future at some point we’ll have evolved our language enough to include sparklepronouns, but it’s not just about language, it’s about social constructs and understanding that while groups of people struggle and have been struggling for years, decades, centuries, possibly even millenia to just be recognized and not ostracized for identifying as male after being born into a female body or vice versa, or shit, even people who don’t experience sexual attraction, or people who don’t identify with either sex or gender, and these people are still being destroyed and systematically abused and ignored, you cannot with any realistic expectation sit there and be like “well I’m wolfkin and fictionkin and I have a phantom tail and sometimes i manifest my kawaii waifu in public” and be like “WHY ARE PEOPLE BEING MEAN TO ME” when yknow, people with actual struggles in the trans/nonbinary/queer community are still to this day struggling with shit like finding healthcare, finding support in any social circles, their families ostracizing them, severely phobic people harassing them, being abused, beaten, murdered, etc
like fucking get over yourself lmao
