100 Days of Korean - #15

Just a short update - I can’t really post what I’ve been doing because of my lack of access to stuff at my parent’s house, but I’m focusing more on vocab at the moment. I’ve found a pretty good list of the most used words on a TOPIK website, when I’m back at uni I’ll post a link. 😊

I’m always studying languages and I’m always curious about where I (a non-binary person, they/them pronouns in English) fit in the scheme. Most of the time there isn’t a clear one and I default back to my designated birth gender (she/her) but it’s pretty grating.

Any of my bilingual or multilingual friends aware of gender neutral or non-binary alternatives gaining traction in other languages? (For example, I read something about ‘ao’ as a suffix happening in Portuguese? Like instead of ‘obrigado/obrigada’ it’s ‘obrigadao’ for an nb person.) Or any recommended reading? Or better yet, language systems where this is already in place.
