'How to Refer to Your Nonbinary Family Members'

Nibling, pibling, auncle, niephling, neiph, niephew, chibling, and sibkid are among your many options!

But these present new problems as well:

[quote]“While new, non-gendered terminology is great for a lot of folks, for me, it also comes with a weight,” they share. “My family members have perceived new language in the past as something that associates my transess with whiteness, which makes it difficult for me to feel comfortable using terms like ‘nibling’ to refer to myself.”

A loveless incel such as OP won't have to worry about this though.

What about laying down rules about pronouns in your own house? If they don’t like it, leave. Just remember that turnabout is fair play.

I call my family members "fucking cunts", which works.

Non-binary family member better watch their ass if they’re coming into my place ok.

I would refer to them as 'targets' for my crossbow arrows.

Nibling and Pibling sounds like some sort of old timey racial insults.. I genuinely think if I used them in a work setting HR would call me in on principle just to make sure.

I dunno, R6, they sound kind of Dr. Suessy to me. Can't you just see all those intersexed-looking Whos in Whoville meeting for Givesthanking with all their niblings and piblings?

Then Tater Tot Timmy greeted its nibling

For the Givesthanking gathering of all of the piblings

"Hello, little Lu! Did you bring your sibkid?"

"Better believe it! Now where is my bib, kid?"

How to refer to your nonbinary family members?

"Oh, you know them. They've got issues. I decided it was better not to invite them this year. We'll see next year if we can put up with whatever new kick they'll have moved onto by then."

Next kick, MAPS R8.

This is real simple: "He" or "She"... Pick one.

I prefer “Sharon” - makes it easier than remembering all their names. I have a shitload of cousins.

OP = Boris. Posting this made up “news” to try to divide our LGBTASS2POZ+ community again.
