Do you know what neopronouns are? Have you ever met someone who uses them?

I stumbled upon a NYT article (a ridiculous one, I might add) about neopronouns. It says:

”A neopronoun can be a word a created to serve as pronoun without expressing gender, like ze and zir. It can also be a noun-self pronoun, like bun/bunself and kitten/kittenself. Others refer to fantasy characters — vamp/vampself or fae/faer/faeself”.

The list goes on.

To me, promoting such ideas seems dangerous. They encourage delusion, confusion and narcissism. They also defeat the point of using pronouns. I understand why a minority of people would like to be called as ”they” or ”them”, but asking to be referred as ”cloudself” or ”bookself”, as if that's part of your GENDER IDENTITY, seems abnormal.

So, have you ever came across someone using a neopronoun? Is this a REAL thing? Are these teenagers targeted by someone trying to push an agenda?
