So i am a bio female and my gender identity is neutrois. And i have run into a few problems with language.
1) my sister calls me Sister instead of my bio name (which i dont like either but thats another thing) so she basically tells people i have lady parts every time she talks to me in public. How can i fix this? Sibling is a neutral term for sibling, but it sounds weird. Is there anything else?
2)same thing, but with my parents. They always say "this is my daughter". First off, i'm not YOUR anything. They dont own me, i'm 18. Is there another more neutral word for child? Kid seem to weird because i'm too old for them to call me that.
3) and what about a neutral word for niece/nephew, or grandkid?
'Cousin' is neutral, so why can't all the other words be too!?!?!
Until you're financially independent of your folks, you're pretty much going to have to kiss ass/suck up to "my house, my rules" mentality because you can't afford to live on your own, otherwise. You really DO NOT want to push these buttons because really bad things can happen if you're kicked to the streets and you don't have anyone to turn to.
Create an alias for yourself. Search online for a name you like, try it with friends, see how you like it. Once you're sure you've settled on your new name, as your folks and sibling to call you your new name.
daveb: Last I had heard was that the tech team was trying something that they thought might fix the slowdown. That was a few hours ago, before AVEN 503 erroring. Like curing a headache by chopping the head off.

Snowy McConetimes: The tech team is actively working on it, so I'm pretty sure it's maintenance related.

timewarp: I went to AVEN, saw that Cole has posted something about a server update, logged in and - got a blank page. So whatever Cole posted, I won't know for now.
