Gender neutral pronoun in Sweden


This is awesome. I hate that our language forces us to always use gender when talking about something, which results in male being the default gender. I use "they", but I kinda hate how it doesn't really make grammatical sense.


Side note, people personify parts of software all the time in my field. So I hear computer processes described as "he" all the time. Bugs me every time I hear it. If I used "she", people would flip out (actually, once I get to be more senior, I just might...). My coworker said "he or she" when referring to a process and I cracked up. Gender-neutrality in anthropomorphization for the win!
