I am an agender person learning Spanish. Do you know if anyone's come up a neutral way of referring to a person?
In general, not really. People can use gender neutral language when allowed by the language itself, but it’s very hard.
The easiest way is to refer to someone as una persona “a person” or alguien “someone” (which normally takes masculine adjectives). They’re neutral in that although they have a gender, they’re impersonal and could refer to anyone.
Similarly for plural, las personas “people”, la gente “people” [which is a collective noun, like el grupo “group” implies more than one person but is treated as singular, buena gente “good people”], or todo el mundo “everyone”
There are ways to sort of avoid gendered things, but it is difficult.
It’s much easier to do it in writing because you can put the @ (arroba) which has elements of A and O [feminine and masculine], or sometimes people use X in the way you might see latinx to be all-inclusive… where X is an unknown quantity, and it can be any or no gender.
These aren’t accepted in mainstream Spanish, so you couldn’t do an essay with them or something like that, but informally and online it’s much easier to write it this way.
There are some people who are trying to work in the unisex E ending into things [like inteligente ends in an -e which means it could be masculine or feminine in context]. This is a little difficult when you have adjectives and nouns that are already gendered, so this is more of a subset or subculture in written Spanish, and again not something accepted in mainstream Spanish.
