I completely identify myself with these phrases by Catalina Ruiz-Navarro:
"I want to confess that I, too, once thought the inclusive language was unnecessary and quite useless if you don't change reality first.
I changed my mind when I began to interact, coexist, admire, and count trans and non-binary people among my friends.
Thanks to the bridges of empathy I understood how painful it was not to be named, and it seemed to me that her dignity and well-being were more important than my stubborn and often arrogant attachment to a conservative and colonialist view of the language.
In other words, using inclusive language does work, because using it implied that I understood that the ethical thing was to recognize others. "
