    Re: the "neither male nor female" question. First my credentials: I'm non-binary, and while I was born in Germany, I lived in France for about 13 years, so I'm fluent in French, though it's a bit rusty since I moved back to Germany. Also, I'm doing my best to explain it as well as I can for those who don't speak French. There is no formally accepted gender neutral pronoun. As far as the académie française is concerned, there is only male and female. However, what Ben said about the gender binary is true, and so we've invented ways to refer to people in a gender neutral way. There is no "they/them" pronoun in French, but we do use neopronouns. The most common one is "iel", which is a combination of "il" (he) and "elle" (she). There are other ones, such as ael, ol, ille, but they're less common. "iel" is the most widely accepted one. Actually, Twitter has started incorporating "iel" into its French site recently, instead of writing "il/elle". Now, in French, every adjective and some verbs have a different ending depending on the gender of the noun, and again, traditionally, there's only male and female endings. Let's take an easy example: the adjective "petit", meaning small or young. The male form is "petit", the female form is "petite". What we do is just kinda mashing both forms together, and separating the male and female endings with a dot. So we would write "petit.e" instead of "petit/petite". This only really works in writing, though. When speaking, personally, I use the male form to refer to myself, because it's considered "less gendered" than the female form, if that makes sense? So when speaking, I'd say "quand j'étais petit" (when I was younger), but in writing I'd use "quand j'étais petit.e". /** Side note: the male form is considered gender neutral in a way because the male plural form of an adjective is used as an all encompassing plural form. For example, when there's a group with only men, you'd say "Ils sont petits". (They're small/short). When it's a group with only women, you'd say "Elles sont petites" (They're small/short). However, when there's both men and women, even when there's more women then men (even when there's only one man and the others are women), you always default to the male form and male plural pronoun. This is something that some of us try to avoid, though, and for a group with mixed genders, we started using the pronoun "iels" (a combination of "ils" and "elles") and the gender neutral form of the adjective. **/ This can get a bit clunky with longer adjectives, for example "heureux", which means happy. The male form is "heureux", and the female form is "heureuse", so the mashed together gender neutral form would be "heureux.se". But we don't have anything else at the moment and probably never will. Also, what I and a lot of other non-binary people tend to do is avoid using gendered language altogether. There are adjectives, for example, where the male and female form is the same. "jeune", for example, which means young. So, instead of saying "quand j'étais petit.e", I'll favor "quand j'étais jeune" because it flows better. This isn't always possible though, and requires a lot of mental gymnastics at times. So yeah, that was your short lesson on using gender neutral language in gendered langauges.

      I'm taking french in school right now and I have always wondered how non-binary people refer to themselves in french so this was really interesting and informative. Thank you :)

    • Kayleigh

      Feubrune - Thank you so much for explaining this! My French teacher didn’t know an answer but now I have one! I am a female but one of my friends isn’t. Fortunaly we live in a country where the words don’t really have a gender :) Edit: I am Dutch for people wondering :)

      Feubrune I wonder if there’s also some way that none binary Spanish people use. I have a friend who is gender fluid, (they use they/them pronouns btw) and we’re both currently taking Spanish as a second language. They also plan on using Spanish and visiting Spain in the future. There is a word for none binary in Spanish, but just like most things in the language it’s gendered.

    Apparently, non-binary people don’t really have a gender-neutral word to use for theirselves in France- and some other places- for that reason, so I’ve heard. I know, it’s dumb; glad there’s still something good for us in America.

    "A lot of French words are gendered" Same thing with Spanish. For example the sky, the sun, the sea, and male while the moon, the stars, the earth, are female. Though what is odd is the "Cielo", the sky, is gendered as male yet it's a female name in Spanish. This is why a white receptionist woman at my school thought I was a boy when she read my name but didn't look at my school ID picture or my school info. So I ended up on the male nomination ballot for Homecoming my freshman year.

    Aren’t there languages out there that have neuter pronouns? I know Latin had neuter declensions, but not sure if any modern Romance languages (or other languages) do. Maybe French could adopt a neuter pronoun for non-gender identifiers?

    Romans decided the words’ gender! 😂 and now all romanic languages (French, for example) are gendered. It sucks, because you can’t really adapt it for non-binary people (or just, you know. If there’s a group of men and women, you refer to group only in masculine... Language teachers try to convince us masculine can be used as neutral, but I think it’s ✨bullshit✨) like you can in English (they/them, and neutral adjectives).

    Well unfortunately in French there are only two genders. Because even plural has a gender. So you can’t identify without a gender in French, that’s why I prefer English, it’s even easier because objects have no gender in English....I’m better at English then French, and I’ve been speaking French my whole life...if that’s not a good example of how complicated French is, I don’t know what it is....

  • Minty

    In Russian (also a gendered language) the words have a gender based on how they end. e.g. words ending in -о -ое are usually neutral gendered, -а -я ending words are usually female and -и -им are usually male.
