    Just discovered this new non binary title.
    A clever combination of Mr and X. 🙂

    It hasn't shown up here yet. It'd save those tedious dropdown boxes where you have to specify just one of a whole lot of choices.

    Why bother at all? Just cut politeness and dispose of the Mr, Miss, Ms, Mrs,Mx,....

    MX5.

    It is no flying machine but is plenty powerful enough for Miss/Ms.

    Lots of forms have the tedious box "title".

    Kewpie's post has proved just that. I was thinking along the lines that the Mx title would be exclusively for transgender people but what's to stop anyone from using it?

    I think Mx is primarily for when anyone doesn't want their gender disclosed
    analogous to Ms being used to hide whether or not a woman is married.

    Swedish has a new word - gender neutral 'hen' - which should be used to replace 'han/hon' (he/she) and 'honom/henne' (him/her), in contexts where either the gender is unknown or irrelevant. It is not a word we use in daily language yet.

    I'm sure there is a joke somewhere about a 'gender neutral hen.'

    I'll get back to you.

    As Seitse isn't here ....

    Did you hear about the bisexual lad with a gender neutral cock?
