Jailbreak The Binary - A Google Chrome Plug-In that makes our online world and language more gender neutral

Jailbreak the Binary

Takes all instances of 'male,' 'female,' 'he,' 'she,' (and many other gendered words) and "swaps them for gender neutral versions."  It's credited as "Attempts at gender neutrality by Marianna Kreidler."

So thanks, Marianna. My thanks as well to the reader who wrote in to tell me about this, saying

"It really makes you think about gendered assumptions.  My favorite instance using it so far was reading explanations of trans words and having it say that faab and maab both stood for human assigned at birth."
