Duo Spiritus asks…
What gender neutral terms are there to speak of one’s child?
I identify as Two-spirit and my mother is really accepting, but she wants to respect my gender and use some sort of neutral term to describe our relationship. Child seems demeaning, offspring sounds detached, and spawn has a negative vibe (according to her) — so what do y’all suggest? We’re open to other languages as long as they’d be recognizable.
