Español que neutro en género 

Me interesan el género funciona en otros idiomas.

Honestamente, me harta el género en el español y el francés. Pienso que pronombres nuevos fue matados por sus diccionarios.

Creo que el finés (y el mandarín) es neutro en género.

Tal vez aprendo otro idioma que el francés, ¿ya saben?

I'm curious about how gender works (or is absent) in other languages. Truth be told I'm getting tired of how gendered Spanish (and French!) are especially since neopronouns were rejected by their dictionaries iirc.

I know Finnish is gender neutral, and I hear at least some dialects of Chinese are.

Might want to take up a different language than French, you know?

Ethically sourced goods with Fair Trade labels may cost more, but they help ensure better conditions for farmers in impoverished countries. And that’s important, considering how many things, like sugar and chocolate, are farmed.

I like to cultivate the attitude that, if I can’t afford something without relying on post-imperialist systems of exploitation, then I can’t afford it at all.

"When white English speakers fold words from other languages into their lexicon, they're often seen as cultured and worldly (and funny!). But for people of color, it's a totally different game. For example, after President Trump enacted the travel ban, Putcha says, her family became "hypervigilant" about speaking the language they normally spoke at home in public "for fear that it would raise suspicion" about their immigration status."

Un podcast inglés hablaba recién sobre los pronombres "la importancia de pronombres" (por Stuff Mom Never Told You). Muchas veces hablaban sobre el Inglés "they" aunque hablaban lo español "elle" y los efuerzos franceses y suecos. También una menciona de el alemán y chino y finés. Aconsejo a escuchándolo si se entienda el Inglés.

A recent podcast from / Stuff Mom Never Told You did an episode on pronouns/gender neutrality called "The Importance of Pronouns". It talks about various languages and how "he" was deliberately considered excluding women legally so you can't make that argument of not male as gender neutral.

It's mostly about English but talks about Spanish, French, Swedish, and Chinese (with a Finnish and Esperanto mention) as well

Hay recomendaciones para una ampliación de Firefox que funciona como un diccionario (ES y FR)? Tengo WordReference, pero es inútil porque que supone su idioma ultimo, entonces muchas veces dice "hay ningunos resultados" (en francés) cuando es una palabra española.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a firefox extension that functions as a dictionary (for Spanish and French)? I have WordReference on, but I find it useless because it just searches the language of what I had last been looking up, so at least 50% of the time, it's telling me there's no result (in French) when it's a Spanish word.

Are there any tips for increasing language learning motivation when you're extra-depressed?

This isn't a New Year's Resolution personally for me, but I wouldn't be surprised if some people have that as a goal.

Tips?

¿Hay consejos por aumentar la motivación cuando se más deprimid@?

Por mí, no es una resolución de año nuevo, pero creo que algunas personas hagan su objetivo.
