Chief what is BigFooty's stance on neopronouns?

Noun-self pronouns can refer to animals - so your pronouns can be "bun/bunself" and "kitten/kittenself". Others refer to fantasy characters - "vamp/vampself", "prin/cess/princesself", "fae/faer/faeself" - or even just common slang, like "Innit/Innits/Innitself".

My preferred noun-self pronoun is Jesus/Jesusself.

Do the BigFooty rules and regulations reflect this new orthodoxy? If someone refuses to use my preferred pronouns, would you sanction them for it?

It's important. Neopronouns give people who feel different from the rest of the world a way to avoid all its boxes at once.

As a simplistic answer I would say I am against sanctioning someone for "failure to use neopronoun". If you are someone who wants neopronooun use beyond the common he/him, she/her or they/them (like the example given bun/bunself) its on the individual to represent themself as wanting that but not get upset if hide bound traditionalists don't conform. Afterall, the bunself person is only one person, why must the feelings of one person force a change on the majority when there is no measurable impact by the non use of the pronoun.

Note I am comfortable with the use of they/them for non binary (I believe this is the preferred term) although have seen some sci fi writers use Zim/zer. If theres a standard convention happy to use.
