  • Hey, so I'm usually just an observer in this wiki, but I feel like this is something that needs to be brought up.

    A recent discussion post posed the question of wheter "the Henchperson of Indeterminate Gender is a boy or a girl", and in the comments of that discussion they are also referred to by the wrong pronouns. Additionally, in the comments of their page, the henchperson is also frequently referred to as a boy, a girl, or “it”, with some comments being fairly recent. A lot of people may not be aware of nonbinary issues or correct pronoun usage, and the henchperson may be a fictional character, but I still feel this is important. And as a nonbinary person myself, seeing things like this can be upsetting. I love ASOUE, and of course I’d want this wiki to be a place where fans of all genders feel welcome. I’m not sure how something like this would be addressed, but is there any way that the henchperson’s correct pronouns can be acknowledged, or that some guidelines can be added so that they are referred to more properly? I know people may not care, but the henchperson deserves to be treated with respect, including pronouns, just like every other character.

    Sorry if this came off weird or rude, this is just something that I feel is important. Thanks.

    • Hello, 

      Thank you for bringing this up. I'm also genderqueer- genderfluid in my case- and I aws also a little concerned by the discussion. I am myself still figuring out how to handle it- I don't want to simply delete the post without discussion, but I already attempted to explain in a comment that the henchperson is nonbinary. Rest assured I want this wiki to be a safe place for all identities and will be doing my best to handle the situation. 

      Thank you.

    • Aah yeah this is something that's kinda difficult to address. Thank you for the prompt reply. I hope something can be figured out. Maybe a reminder on the henchperson's page about proper ways to refer to them? I wouldn't want the misgendering to continue. Thanks for all that you're doing, and I'm glad you're looking after the wiki so that it can be a welcoming space :)
