This is literally breathtaking.
My friend just sent this to me… wow. Watch until the end.
Nothing makes sense anymore
Oh my god.
Wow. I literally have tears in my eyes, that was spectacular.
This exact act was part of Amaluna when I went to see it earlier this year, and I swear, I have never heard an audience so quiet in my LIFE. I remember thinking at the time, too, that I had never imagined an audience holding its collective breath to see if someone could keep a stack of things balanced that way before, but the audience reactions were very much like the ones in this video. It was amazing.
aw, the storm outside scared the dog and now he’s laying in my room with me. He never comes in here.
The animals finally like me, I feel special. UwU

If I were Swedish, by all means! That would be a perfect pronoun. However, because I happen to live in America, it brings up the same issues I have with other gender neutral pronouns like Ze/Zir and Xe/Xir. It’s difficult for the average english speaker to be wary of pronoun use anyway, asking them to use words outside their language turns into a huge headache (I’ve found to be the case anyway).
My preferred pronouns are They/them for two reasons; it’s both gender neutral and easier for others to adapt to. Not that I’m against other people’s preferred pronouns, it’s just my preference to make my identity as accessible to the people I’m attempting to explain it to and I personally feel like there’s a certain bit of alienation when using less common pronouns with people who may not be quite as aware of the whole gender spectrum.
I hope that makes sense! ha ha

Ask a MRA anything. That.
