exactly. just another divide and conquer sub-tactic.I still have yet to meet or hear of someone who is gender neutral so I'm assuming the internet gives it the illusion that it's more widespread than it actually is.
even if i did meet someone who preferred to called whatever, without them telling me, how am i supposed to know? and if they do tell me that they like to be referred to as he/she/it , then i'll refer to them as that. nee bother.
