Yo is the new Hir

Awesome. The English language has always needed a gender-neutral pronoun, but prescribed words like hir reek of east-coast liberal elitism. So I'm down with flipping this inner-city and going with yo.


i go with peer, or per... came from person, threw out the son, masculine you know... and left with per, seems close to peer, which is what we all are, each other's peers... should take a few decades for english to wobble in some way that something from chinglish or hinglish will step in and do it right...

I thought the singular "they" already won this battle.

"zhe" was also a popular pronoun at wesleyan.
