Gender is a social construct hth


I am pretty sure gender is quite biological and important for reproduction.... But... Who knows

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

Schooled...

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.


True, and it ignores a cisgendered person. However, I think that an or doesn't imply exclusion that it must be binary. So saying he/she meaning he or she means he, she, or some combination thereof (aka neither or both).

There's also xe and hir, although no one really uses those outside of xojane, etc.

Came back from lunch to see three new pages, expected to see a bunch of decisions.

Glad it was just he-she talk.

Is that a boy or girl cat? :lol:

Good luck to everyone waiting on decisions today. I hope there are acceptances with the speculated waitlists.

"it"



I thought "ze" was the gender-neutral pronoun?


In other news, no movement for me. Been complete since early Nov.

Didn't interview with an alum due to my location...but did write a why Northwestern.


Still complete as of early September myself. 174-176, 3.9x, no interview or Why Northwestern.

I think they forgot about me.


Based on your numbers and your lack of a why NU or an interview, they probably don't think you're actually interested.

I think he is tweeting earlier than the decisions go out like he did yesterday because he doesn't want us to break it.

So NU does DLA on the hour. Is that it can happen multiple times, or is it that it only turns once a day, but that will be on the hour?

ETA: Nothing for me right now, if that wasn't obvious. Second complete earlier this week.

DLA. I'm sure it's a waitlist, which I'm not surprised about given how badly my interview went (hadn't slept in 24 hours bc of work and it was with an admissions rep)

Good luck to everyone!
