Gendered language exists – and while some may find some words that they like, being a nonbinary person (for me at least), means that finding words that are typically associated with the gender binary difficult.
But what do I mean by a gendered word – well, to get technical, gender in languages is just one way of breaking up nouns into classes or categories. A noun is a part of language that names a person, place, thing, idea, action or quality. For example, nouns can refer to an individual name of a person. Like Mike or Amrita. Also, it can refer to a place or thing.
So here are some of all the “gendered” words that I like: sibling (as opposed to sister), spouse/partner/significant other (as opposed to girlfriend or wife), person (as opposed to girl), handsome, cute, uncle
