Struggling with trans-inclusive language
I find these two things active in my mind:
1) My entrenched notion of language is not more important than actual people who may be harmed by it.
2) Language like “assigned female people” or “uterus-having people” feels alien and impersonal to me.
In light of (1), what are some ways you deal with (2)? Where do you see the language around these topics converging over time? Are there any analogues from history that would be instructive?
Spotted this on Twitter; intriguing. @mike
