Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.
Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.
Heterosexual men worry that we’ll be misidentified as gay. Like we’re the only group that cares that you know what we are. Like there’s no women that are scared somebody will think they are a lesbian. I never heard that. There’s no gay guys who think, ‘They’re going to think I’m straight.’ You never hear that. But we worry about it. And so it’s limiting. Like there’s things that we can’t do that might be nice.

"Your highness" is gender neutral.
So you know, if you’re ever confused about my pronouns.
alternatively, “your majesty,” “my liege,” and “supreme overlord”
please note that “your grace” is also acceptable
Ruler of the lands is my personal favorite tbh
OPINIONS CAN BE RACIST
OPINIONS CAN BE SEXIST
OPINIONS CAN BE HOMOPHOBIC
stop using “it’s just my opinion” to justify your bigotry.
