Lavender converts gendered English pronouns to gender-neutral pronouns. For example, the sentence 'She loves strawberries' is converted to 'Ze loves strawberries'. Lavender helps you to read and learn 21st-century English.
Lavender is a firefox browser extension
that converts gendered English pronouns (e.g., he, she, herself) to gender-neutral pronouns (e.g., ze, ze, hirself).
Gender-neutral pronouns are pronouns that do not specify the gender of their referents. Often, the gender of a person is not relevant to the message that the text carries. Moreover, not all people's gender identities are encompassed by the gender binary
that the 20th-century english language imposes
With Lavender, you can read the internet while the pronouns on the pages are converted to their gender-neutral equivalents. Gender-neutral English is now easy to learn! In case you decide it is not for you, it is also easy to turn off the add-on and switch back to mainstream English.
We are continuing to develop the add-on further, and it could be that not all pages are translated optimally yet
