I think he/she meant "how can you be glad you're not getting a decision today" aka how do you know you're not getting a decision today.


Complete for only about 1.5 weeks now. I'm expecting next week or the week after. Although I may be surprised, but probably won't happen today.

Gender doesn't equal sex.

You are born with sex.
Gender is how you identify.

Completely off topic, but useful notes:
Sex = what you were born with (xy or xx, usually (but not always))
Gender = what you identify with
Identification = your sexuality
Attraction = whom you are attracted to

No, you're thinking of a person's sex. That's what determines whose smushy bits you can interact with to make more of yourself.

Gender is an outward display of your identity... or something.

Did I do it right, tumblr people?

Yes, my initial complete was 1/20ish (maybe the 21st or 22nd?) Now updated to complete on 1/28

So maybe capt was just pointing out that it is socially acceptable to use "he" as a term referring to all genders and thus he/she is unnecessary and rudundant?

Does NU do date changes?
I just have complete as of 1/17 but is a date change normal/expected/desired with NU?

Incorrect. (s)he or he/she seems the most appropriate as it doesn't imply any particular gender. Just like how Ms. is appropriate if you don't know a woman's marital status.

except she/he implies a gender binary.

English really needs a completely gender-neutral term. Using "he" is another example of putting women outside the norm, the same way how it is okay to refer to women using male terms, but not men using female terms.
