My 5 year old nephew just paused before gendering me and used they/them pronouns.
His mom had a couple simple talks about what to call me and what not to call me. Since he used to call me Auntie J. Now its just J. He hasn’t had a hard time calling me J instead thus far.
And today he was on his four wheeler and rode up next to me and slowed down and said “can I call you dude?” And I said “sure! Thanks for asking.” And he said “mom J said I could call…🤔them…dude!!”
And then he drove off lmao
How sweet is that? I almost cried tbh.
