Kryptonian's Liked Comments

Almost everyone I know, whether they mean to or not, uses "they/their/theirs" as the gender neutral equivalent of "he/his/his" or "she/her/hers," at least in casual conversation.

That's the great thing about language: it changes over time to fill its own conceptual gaps, and the scholars often take generations to codify it. "They/their/theirs" will be considered formal usage in a matter of fifty years or I'll eat my hat.

It would be nice to have a way to tell "friends" in a non-confrontational way: "Please stop posting this stupid, pointless bullsh*t. I like to keep up on the cool things you're doing and finding online, but I really don't give a flying f*ck about this lame political re-post or your g-d farmville activities. Seriously, dude. Enough."
