Aggressive? There was barely a hint of aggression in your post for me. Anyway, I wouldn't even know how to pronounce ze or xe unless we're simply going to go by the syllables. The concept of being agender is quite interesting with your explanation of the prefix.
And it's good being passionate about something. One of the barriers I find, in terms of transgender awareness, is the older audience. It's most likely that they don't understand the concept of being transgender especially with how they were raised in the past.
Well both ze and xe are pronounced similarly to the German pronoun sie, if that helps at all. Neo pronouns and such are like the ultimate combination of my love for linguistics and my passion for activism. *stops before they go on a tangent about the evolution of language*
I guess you find the concept of being agender to be as fascinating as I do that people actually think the gender binary is a thing that exists. Haha... But you will find logic behind most labels used, I mean there's a reason there's an A in LGBTQIA and it's sure not for ally.
I don't know if age has so much to do with it as an unwillingness to be more open minded is. Once you've decided you know everything you need to know, you stop trying to learn more. Which, granted is more common in older people but some of the bigots I've had the displeasure of interacting with have been the same age as I am, or younger.
I'm glad you didn't find my post to be too aggressive, any amount of aggressiveness is a lot for me since I'm a pacifist by nature.
I see! And I didn't find your post to be aggressive at all! Interesting enough I've came across neo pronouns when I was studying organic chemistry a while ago
