  1. It sounds like a great idea to me. As for child rearing, the use of “hen” can be optional.

    Eventually, if the usage has major social benefit, it will continue and likely spread to other nations as well.

    • it seems to me that a more gender neutral society would be more reflective of reality anyway, i like the book title quoted in the article, “100 instead of two” with reference to rejecting the binary gender paradigm

      • I know, I have always been intrigued by the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis. Simply stated, it says that the structure of a language shapes the way a person is able to conceptualize the world.

        Thanks again for the tweets!
