Breaking Up Non Neutrality In English Script

Description from extension meta

Replaces he/she with they; per 16th Century English Grammar

Image from store Breaking Up Non Neutrality In English Script
Description from store Choice. Independence. Freedom. For some, perhaps many, a forced bifurcation of English into specific gender pronouns is unfortunate and unnecessary. This simple extension provides a neutral and liberated perspective of script, as was once the option: "...the use of plural pronouns to refer back to a singular noun isn’t a sign of declining standards in modern English: it represents a revival of a practice dating from the 16th century, as the OED evidence makes clear: He neuer forsaketh any creature vnlesse they before haue forsaken them selues. - J Fisher Wayes to Perfect Religion (before 1535)"

  • (2016-06-06) Ryc Story teller: I've been reading through some stories now, and there are just some things that i want fixed. 1. make his/her example, their example, instead of them example. 2. they were example, instead of they was example. 3. the theirs, in in theirs example, should be their, although things like it's theirs can stay the same. 4. replace every gender specific job or role, with the neutral version. 5. remove the s of for example, they stops. 6. replace is, in, for example, they is, with they are. 7. replace the s from they's with a d. 8. replace the doesn't in they doesn't with don't. do this and you get five stars. P.S. read through a few stories yourself before doing this, you will know what i mean.
