This seems like a good way to start off the comm. I'll go first:

My name is Hauke, I'm your resident mod here! I'm 25, an SFF nerd, and currently living at home with my parents while working and studying part time because of mental health problems.

In English I like to go by ey/em/eir pronouns, but my first language is German and so far I’m pretty lost when it comes to how to make it work for me gender-wise. Luckily for me I live in England at the moment and speak English to a lot of my closest friends, but I really want to go back sometime, and also come out to my family, who I speak German to, but so far I’m not sure how to go about it.

I started this comm because when I went looking for answers, all I could find was English language communities and help pages. We might not have the answers for each other, but I think we can be a helpful community of people with similar experiences, nonetheless!

Please feel free to introduce yourselves and generally chat below! And make posts about whatever you would like to talk about.

Welcome, all!

Hello! I'm Richard/Ryszard, I identity as agender but sometimes I'm a Boy. My first language is polish and I was born and rised in Poland. I use they/them/their pronouns in english but I use he/him/his in polish. Polish is a very gendered language so I had often find alternative ways to speak without having to use 'I' (which is gendered on 'masculine'and 'feminne'). It was really stresfull since i often sliped and I wasn't out at that time. So I think thats all from me (for now). Let's be friends uwu!

Yeah, I got pretty good at avoiding it. Good chunk of polish words are gendered so it sucks too. This is a big reason I prefer speaking in english- it's way less gendered than polish.

Ugh, I feel ya on the gendered "I" - it's something that really bothers me whenever I visit my relatives in Poland. How do you manage to get around it?

I tend to just use masculine 'I' but sometimes i just dont use 'I' at all but we for example: 'Już poszliśmy do kina' trans. 'We went to cinema already' but it brings attention. Sometimes I try to speak without any pronun but it's really hard to do and sounds werid.

Hi! I'm Jag and I live in France. I like they/them/their pronouns but I use masculine forms in French since it doesn't have a neutral - doesn't feel quite right but finding ways to speak without gendering myself gets exhausting so I default to that because it's better than the alternative and then I go hide on internet where people use English :D This comm is a good idea, thanks for making it!
