Removes gender from your view of the web.

Image from store Jailbreak the Binary
Description from store Chrome extension to remove gender from pronouns and other terms throughout web browsing. It also adds a "toggle gender" browser action button that reloads the current tab and pauses/unpauses the extension. This is a fork of [Jailbreak the Patriarchy](https://github.com/DanielleSucher/Jailbreak-the-Patriarchy). Check out that plugin. if you would rather binary genders be swapped. All credit goes to [DanielleSucher](DanielleSucher) for doing the groundwork for this plugin. *** Known issues: - Since "her" can be a possessive or objective pronoun, sometimes “her” should translate to “them”, and sometimes it should translate to “their”. Rather than run every node update through some sort of natural language parser, I set up regular expressions with a set of rules that recognize the most common cases where “her” always or usually should translate to “them”, and then one that translates all remaining instances of “her” to “their” instead. What this ultimately means is that sometimes you’re going to see “their” where you really ought to see “them” instead, or vice-versa. Please submit issues when you find examples that break this - It doesn't include words like "mum", "fellow", "mister", &c, that are often used in entirely non-gendered ways (e.g. "mum's the word", "my fellow americans", "perfume mister"). I haven't thought up a good way around that [yet]. - Apparently there was already a fork called [Jailbreak the Binary](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mmdlclbfhplmbjfefngjbicmelpbbdnh) but it doesn't seem to exist any more. - It's my personal preference that not all gendered words are replaced. e.g. "mansplain" - Not all gendered words have standard non-gendered equivalents, but I've used words suggested [here](https://nonbinary.wiki/wiki/Gender_neutral_language) to fill in the gaps, e.g. mom / dad -> par (short for parent) - I'm aware the a lot of the translations are a bit silly like replacing all instances of the word male with agender. This is for fun. ## Credits - The original plugin - this list of substitutions http://web.mit.edu/comdor/editguide/style-matters/gender_neutral.html - this article https://nonbinary.wiki/wiki/Gender_neutral_language - the logo is from here: https://www.deviantart.com/pride-flags/art/Agender-Symbol-617960504

  • (2022-09-27) Casual Bean: love this, but does it replace words like "Miss" or "Mr"? doesn't seem to.
  • (2021-12-27) Alex Johnston: There are a few syntax issues that could be input (see other reviews) - but I absolutely LOVE this extension. Its freedom.
  • (2021-08-17) Marie Elliott: So funny in lots of things, like surveys, animal biology, even TV show talk! Overall, love it! I just have some minor gripes: -Liege is misspelt as Leige (so I hear it weird in my head when I read it) -Might be my dialect but I prefer "they" as having plural agreement in verbs even when singular. So seeing "They was working" and "They's" is a little annoying/breaks the flow. Maybe there could also be an option to change the substitutions, which might also help people when thinking about what substitutions they'd like to use. Like the ones for parent/para. It could maybe be laid out similar to the pronoun dressing room thing, if it's easier to implement that way.
