The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “special”, came with an email note:
Non-binary Moses is back! We think he’ll be ditching the label soon.
For anyone unfamiliar with this latest iteration of the ‘soul’, Stonewall has a guide which reads like a masterpiece of deadpan.
I’m not sure what the artist means by “masterpiece of deadpan” (it seems to be largely about pronoun use), but I guess Moses isn’t as special as he thought.
As for pronouns, as I’ve always said, I’m glad to use whatever pronoun someone desires, but somehow I can’t bring myself to use my personal pronouns in introductions or in letters or emails. Unless, that is, my personal pronoun is “His Majesty” or “Your Majesty.” Is it wrong to just emphasize your pronoun only if it differs from the norm?
