Heshe and/or Shehe: A partial, simple, solution to a difficult issue. Also, Himher and/or Herhim.

Reader comment on item: How to Answer When Asked for Your Pronouns

Submitted by Ludvikus (United States), Feb 18, 2022 at 11:26

I just coined pairs of Neologisms.

First of all, there are two issues inherent in the question: (1) the Genitals, or Genitalia One (nice neutral word, by the way) is born with, and (2), One's Romantic, or Sexual Behavior One prefers or engages in.

Second, in the context of Tolerance and non-discrimination, I have coined pairs of words which appear easy and natural to use.

Examples in use (sentences):

1. "Give it to himher." In the alternative, "Give it to herhim."

2. "Heshe gave it." Or, "Shehe received it.

Notice, by the way, that "you" and "them" are already gender-neutral in the English language.

I thing I solved the gender problem, haven't I"

PS: Regarding medical issues - as in hospital or medical questioners, there are these possibilities,
where M=Male and F=Female (according to One's DNA & Genitalia (not the exclusive "or"):

1. MxF (Conjugation or Sex, a Male having Sex Exclusively with a Female),
2. FxM,
3. MxM,
4. FxF,
5. MxF & MxM
6. FxM & FxF

These issues may involve sexually transmitted diseases which an MD needs to evaluate.
