@Nikolai_Kingsley your point?
i just like referring to groups of people as HU-MAAAAAAANs. to remind them. in case they forget.
@Nikolai_Kingsley I think your missing the point. Or your trying to be a shitposter.
@liaizon @Nikolai_Kingsley In the UK, I'd say "guys" is gender neutral in actual usage for many/most people... But yeah... I too like (and use) "humans". It's the most inclusive/accurate term one could possibly use! Unless, my cat is part of the group I'm addressing, in which case I just use "meat wads".
@liaizon @Nikolai_Kingsley I'd love to know if that was the intention, because I didn't catch that at all. Just goes to show that no matter how great our attempts to improve social media, text based messaging across different cultural and linguistic contexts remains the digital equivalent of leaving passive aggressive post-it notes on a communal fridge.
@liaizon @Nikolai_Kingsley C'mon... Even if we accept that the etymological derivation of the word "human" evidences a patriarchal world view, its practical use now is as a synonym for the word "people" (regardless of sex or gender). If it is used at all, it is mainly to differentiate between species, which is why it is funny and instructive to use it in conversation in place of other options. Anyway, I'm going to go hang out with my meat wad now. Laters, y'all!
@liaizon Needs a few additions:
- wastes of oxygen
- primitive screwheads
- poor fucking humans
