The third part is the relevant part.

No that is not a response to what I said. You are merely repeating what you already said.

Sander Rossel wrote:
I know both can get like that.


Again not a response to what I said especially since I already said that.

Perhaps but that is made up language which some intend to add to the language in general. They are attempting to do that by force which is not how language works.

It is similar to the older form of 'womyn'. Which was rationalized based on ignorance of the etymology of the word 'woman'.
