Everyone, please do not use gendered pronouns when addressing the crowd.
I'm current in a therapy group for people with eating disorders. It's something I have to do to be considered viable for weightloss surgery I'm having in October. The first day there, I had to announce myself as my name and pronouns. Not only there, things we talk about are things that may "trigger" us.
I'm not sure if it has any thing to do with this type of culture shift, but I think psychotherapy is a leading cause of what's happening, socially in our world.
