Talking of coming from another country, how do you deal with pronouns in German/a language without gender neutral pronouns? I've talked about that the last few days with a friend, but we haven't found a solution. Any thoughts?

I usually default back to the masculine form since this is the more neutral one, generally. But of course, I don't know if you're/whoever is comfortable with that. And I talked with my best friend about it, so she uses pronouns less and more often my name instead.

I use generic masculin for nouns and female pronouns since I am not sure I can get everyone to use neopronouns. I like ne/nim/nir, but I just don't want to explain everything every single day...

I've never heard of those pronouns. Are they especially for German? Could you give me some examples?

Those are neopronouns, they should work for most languages.

Kim likes books. Ne has a whole collection.

Nim friends like to borrow nir books now and then.
