I would you like you to call me "they." The singular they is a perfect pronoun: inclusive, flexible, obviates inadvertent misgendering. It also breaks us out of the collective mind-prison of gender norms that stifles us all. My column: Call me They. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/10/opinion/pronoun-they-gender.html
you can call me, maybe, farhad
What the fuck are you talking about? I always called you "they."
