Ever thought what the world would be like if everyone had gender-neutral names?

This Twitter user came out as non-binary to their family and here’s a tweet to show how their mother’s trying to come up with a gender-neutral name to address them.

My mom has always called me “baby girl” and we’ve been experimenting with gender neutral ways to adapt that since I came out as nonbinary.

What is ‘Non-Binary’?

As per some studies, Genderqueer, also known as non-binary, is a catch-all category for gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine‍—‌identities that are outside the gender binary. Genderqueer people may express a combination of masculinity and femininity, or neither, in their gender expression.

Ever since, Twitter has been buzzing with reactions to her tweet.

Pride all the way!

What gender neutral ways can you think of other than this to address your kids and friends?
