nonbinary identities in French? please boost 

How do you and your Francophone loved ones manage grammatical gender in French? I have a nonbinary friend who's a native English speaker and is learning French. They're trying to figure it out for themself. They're aware of «iel», and I'm planning to tell them about e.g. «amusant·e·s».

Please boost.

I'm much more interested in direct experiences from nonbinary Francophones and their loved ones than theory. Thank you <3

@epilanthanomai Their is no really good solution, but yeah, there is "iel" and middle dot, but it doesn't well when speaking.

for words that end in "eur/rice" you can use the "eurice" form. (exemple auteur/autrice -> auteurice)

kind of the same with "eur/euse" words.

@Ambraven @epilanthanomai
yeah, it's hell orally speaking. apart from iel, i've also seen people use ol or ul and they could come up with whatever neo-pronouns they want as well, if they feel so inclined. (i personally use ouaielle)
