Right on, Ruby! Let's de-gender English! Then, when we're done with English,
let's do the Romance languages -- you know, all that _el_ and _la_ stuff
in Spanish, etc. We could even create a new proto-World here, thus proving
the theory that a proto-World is possible. Did you know that in Spanish,
_esposa_ means both _wife_ and _handcuffs_, is that sexist? Does it tell
us anything? If you choose to reply to anything, please use Cherokee
(Tsalagi), as it is the only genderless language I speak -- I won't be able
to understand what you are saying if you use any other genderless language.
Together, we can change the world! We'll do ethnocentrism next week.
Yours in Solidarity,
