They made sure to work that they were non-binary into our training.

Like I fcking care about your gender identity, just get behind the computer and listen to the directions I give you, you fcking goober.

It works for me.

Bring up a cordial conversation to get to know them.... like, "so.... do you like rear then?"

I've always wondered what formal titles/greetings non-binary people use. Like if I were to write an e-mail to a superior that was non-binary

Pretty sure you're supposed to refer to a non binary person as "they" which is honestly just as psychotic as it sounds
thetowerofrome 2/21/2019 7:12:22 PM
No, just rear question

Whatever it identifies as, I'm already sick of it.

Who takes a 15 minute smoke break every hour during training? I had it with me for 8 hours and it took a smoke break for the first 5 hours until I said no more. I'm curious what bathroom it uses, but I think it used the bathroom when it would go out to smoke, and that area is on the other side of the building.

I get the they part but what about when you need to address someone as Ms., Mr., etc? To whom this may concern sounds wrong and condescending or something.

barbara, the answer is "Mx." unless they ask for no title.
