Normal

Normal

Cat: Normality is a reactionary tool for othering the undesirable. In a modern and inclusive society, there is no room for “normal“. Nowadays it is commonly acceptable to identify as any gender. To ask for and use ones preferred pronouns is now the usual norm. Where once there only were he and she, we now have xe, xer, hir, hem and more. Today, using these pronouns is… Dog: …normal? Cat: Yes. Dog: I’m sure that YOUR normality isn’t reactionary or othering at all, is it.

Cat: Why the sudden interest in pronouns? Dog: I found out that i am a nocturnal cogitogender. Cat: I’m impressed that you know about cogitogender, it was discovered just recently! Dog: Actually i just made it up! Cat: A cogitogender is a gender that only exists when you think about it. it is quiet until called to attention. Dog: Seriously. I made it up.

Dog: The HELL did just happen?
