We like this @FriendlyPacmanFriendlyPacman no bias since we are RetroPacman at all. 😉

While this is clearly a trolling post, adding an option for multiples probably wouldn't be the hardest thing. There was a runner during Frame Fatales who had "they (plural)" onscreen as their pronoun. Seems easy enough.

How far will this nonsense get pushed I wonder? Can I get a pronoun for identifying as a cosine function?

or can we finally just get a custom info box like any other forum?
this would make everyone happy.

Excellent question @SaradocSaradoc. Just when will all this "showing basic human decency and common courtesy to other people" stop. Definitely WAY too much of that going around!

And yeah, I've always thought a user-definable text box would be perfect. Would accommodate neopronouns or multiples, it would make it crystal clear who's just an asshole and can safely be ignored if they put "Attack/Helicopter" or some shit in there. The only argument against it I've ever seen is "it might get misused/abused" which you can say about literally anything.

It's neither courtesy nor decency to enable someone's delusions and/or attention-seeking. "Xenogenders" and "multiples" aren't real, the Earth isn't flat and 2+2=4.

With all due respect @SaradocSaradoc I'm not sure the wiki article you linked is proving your point. Of the two definitions of the term you linked, one is unrelated to the attack helicopter meme and the other is referencing and making fun of it. It should be simple enough to tell whether a person putting that in a custom profile box is referencing the meme genuinely or ironically by looking at their conduct, and taking according action.

Gonna agree with @RetroPacmanRetroPacman that this thread has gone on long enough; we've established many of us like the idea of a custom status/pronoun box and we don't need tensions any higher.

It's not as if having a custom pronoun box would be hurting anyone. If you don't want to use it, then don't use it. If people want to be snarky assholes by putting something silly in there then let them, they're only making themselves look childish. You can certainly disagree with someone else's ideals or opinions, but when you start devolving into mockery of them for their ideals or opinions that's what children or immature individuals do.

Gender is not a flimflam word, it was literally put in place to designate how one GENerates life, in a male way or in a female way. No others and no in betweens, those are the only ways human persons are lawfully generated.
