Everything You Need to Know About Gender-Neutral Pronouns | Grammarly Blog

In short, they want a ‘hen’.

No, not the feathered thing with the strange red floppy hat. The Swedish ‘hen’, which as of April 2015 has been adopted by the Swedish Academy’s official dictionary as the gender-neutral alternative to the ‘hon’ (he) and ‘han’ (she) third-person pronouns.

Gérard, it 's very important to be aware of that. I would add that  the adults around them should give them permission to succeed and not fit all of them in the mold they have chosen.

Hi Muriel,

I'm convinced that -except in cases of physical failure- a baby has oodles of gifts.
Unfortunately, many people "cut their wings, one by one, banning everything around them: look at the bright eyes of a 1-year-old baby, 3-year-old, 7 year-old: many 7-year-old kid eyes are dull.
Raising kids consists in letting them do what they wish, just taking care of their security.

Hi Gérard
Children should be brought up with reasonable boundaries to have a secure environment and also to learn how  to obey our society rules (for instance to be nice and polite with people ) but as you said : cutting their wings one by one and banning everything around them is a mistake.

Hi Gérard !
I had to look up the word "redundant" on the internet. Here it is
1. Exceeding what is necessary or natural; superfluous.
2. Needlessly wordy or repetitive in expression: a student paper filled with redundant phrases.
3. Of or relating to linguistic redundancy.
4. Chiefly British Dismissed or laid off from work, as for being no longer needed.
5. Electronics Of or involving redundancy in electronic equipment.
6. Of or involving redundancy in the transmission of messages.
7. Genetics Degenerate.

Hi Muriel,
MurielB a écrit:... I had to look up the word "redundant" on the internet.
Always good to learn a new word.

However we have French words which are not false cognates: "redondant, redondance" (we often use them in computing science.

In English, the expression "to make redundant" means to fire, to let go, to lay off.
