read a fantasy novel recently where the language let's you gender first person pronouns so when you say "hi my name is hvee" the form of "my" you'd use would signal which set of pronouns apply to you and now i wish that was a thing

this is the internet, can we just make a convention of optional subscripting first person pronouns with a gender designation

example: hey awoosters i♂️ had a great week, how are y'all doing?

my🚻 pal is coming over to talk about maps with me🚻


she's going to a place i🚻've hiked a bunch so i🚻' m gonna hook her up with some tips

(okay this looks pretty visually clunky but maybe it requires some more exposure before it starts feeling not clunky)
