Passing thought for trans folk, gender fluid, non-binary, etc.

In the Hungarian language, all pronouns are gender neutral.

ő == he or she
őt == him or her

OTOH, most Hungarians (at least outside of Budapest) are still pretty old-school in their views on gender identity.

@nattiegoogie Two immediate thoughts on this:

1) Hungarian is pretty nationalist in its language though as I recall - aren't there prepositions like "in" and "from" that are different for things in Hungary than out of it?

2) Out of curiosity, I'm sure there's some right wing goofy news media in Hungary (based on Orban's conglomeration - it might just be the state media). Have they done any stories on trans/non-binary folk? I have to assume they've found a way to be dickish in their language.
