Hilarious that some of us switch out after typing up a message before sending it off. I feel bad about sending it off for them cause it's their call so they should hit send themselves, but it looks done and we honestly will often forget about sending it at all if the next person doesn't. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
What's with singlets saying they/them is reserved for plural folk only? This is the second time I've seen it, so not a lot yet, but it came up again??
Singlets usually use singular they, there's already a difference of singular and plural they, this feels antagonistic? I feel like we are getting used to attack singular they just existing?
And I've never actually seen a take like that from another collective before?? Has a multiple/plural ever said such things like that? I don't get it.

🌀: Today harper and cosmo made some strawberry ice cream and we've already eaten two helpings of it. I wonder if there's a stereotype of faes making really yummy food?
Our faes all seem to have an interest in cooking/baking, but there's the problem of us and othes overeating whatever they made, so we've been limiting them on how often they get to make things.
🔔: The mother appears to use us sometimes as well.. Maybe this old speak* for the body's parents.. Wonder if it played any influence into us being plural..? But I don't think any of our firstborns shared any memories of them talking like that however..
*IDK what I want to use here instead to better say what I mean..?
🔔: Wonder if the body's father is plural.. I've noticed he seems to use plural pronouns.. like a lot.. we and us.. like today he said "get off us" to the dogs.. before that he said "can you do that for us" when he asked me to look something up for him.. he might just be singular but talks like that.. I know some singular folk who do but it makes me wonder ya know..
