Ghe, the personal pronoun of mutual respect
"This truce is available immediately to all who value peace and tolerance"
“Ghe” invokes the most correct gendered personal pronoun for the person being referred to, applied as respectfully as possible. By “most correct,” we mean the pronoun this person currently uses, or if different, the one ghe would ultimately use upon full personal enlightenment.
Although neither the speaker nor the listener knows for certain what pronoun is invoked, each can rest assured that it is at least as correct and respectful as the best one ghe can think of.
The “gh” in “ghe” is pronounced as either
the “g” in “beige,” or
the “ch” in “blech.”
The “e” is pronounced as in “me.”
In casual speech, these two forms tend to sound like “she” and “he,” respectively.
How can we tell whether someone has said “ghe,” “she,” or “he”?
If you cannot tell phonetically, consider the speaker’s tone and attitude. If it is friendly or neutral, without clear disrespect, then interpret the word as “ghe.”
What if the speaker is just saying “he” or “she” out of gender ignorance?
Unless the speaker is disrespectful in some detectable way, choose to see them as a pleasant peer who wants everyone to have a nice time.
“Ghe” declares a truce of mutual respect between traditional speakers and gender theorists. Regardless of vocabulary or jargon, traditional speakers and gender theorists alike can carry on knowing that their respect for all humanity is appreciated. This truce is available immediately to all who value peace and tolerance.
Though less well known, a third form is pronounced or spelled in any respectful manner of the speaker’s choice. Caution is advised, as this form is not honored by many listeners.
For listeners, “ghe” offers a unique “listener pronunciation” form allowing the listener to hear or read it any way ghe wants. To use this, actually hear the word “ghe” as any word of your choice, and contemplate the choice you made.
An even more unique form allows both to assume the worst so they can fight about it. Plugins are pre-installed on most social media platforms.
