(for the anon asking for spanish options to gender neutral language)
I’ve been researching on this for a while now, got into some discussions with friends studying Lingüistica and other studying Antrophology, and I’m afraid I can’t say anything that you (probably) don’t know already, anon.
So far, it seems no one has agreed on a gender neutral pronoun for spanish. The only time I tried speaking of an agender friend with someone irl, I ended up using their name over and over again in order to avoid pronouns, and also took advange of “le” whenever I could (again, supressing the pronouns that you usually say before that). It’s… very hard. I actually had to ask my friend to switch to english because, not being used to speaking like that, it was taking me a long time to construct the sentences, which is ironic and weird because, you know, spanish’s supossed to be my first language ? ?
For adjectives, if it needs to be defined by gender, you can try ending it with ‘x’ (ej: bonitx instead of bonit@, serix instead of seri@, etc)… but you’ll find that actually pronouncing the words can be kinda hard (after all, we spanish speakers aren’t used to suddenly pronouncing a phonetic ‘x’ out of “nowhere”. Though I think it can be learned and practiced, the main issue would be to get people to use that both in written and spoken language). So I think it’d be best to try and stick to (the few) adjectives that aren’t gendered (“agradable, elegante”, etc)
So I think that saying something like this:
"I love my friend Alex. They’re nice, very talented, and loves animals. I wish I could give them a cool present"
would go like this in spanish:
"Amo a mi amigx Alex. Alex es agradable, talentosx, y ama los animales. Desería poder darle un regalo chévere"
You could also try to say: “Amo a mi amigx Alex; es agradable, (…)” but I think those omissions mostly work when written, and can be a bit weird when spoken, unless you do it mad fast… so if you doubt, you already lost your chance ussing them. At least that’s how I feel it (?)
((Basically our language has still got to figure stuff out and, if going by internet articles tells me anything, people aren’t really considering adding a gender neutral pronoun and making it work for adjectives.
Everything I’ve read that talks about a gender neutral form of speaking, usually revolves around debating wether or not there will be switch from making the masculine form the ”standard” to making the femenine form the new standard, and basically all articles conclude saying that that won’t happen, like… basically this “scholars of language” aren’t even aware that there are tongues with neither, and that that’s an option.))
