"Very important. General rule for English speakers - if you don’t do it in the human context, don’t do it in the nonhuman context.
Just make a little effort to say “she or he” or “her or him” if you don’t know the sex. It’s a little effort with a very important social message.
Nonhuman animals are *persons*, not *things*. Therefore, we should refer to a nonhuman animal as a “she” or “he,” never as an “it.””
This is Nashi, writing in my brother’s, Krzysztof, name.
Back in February I made a post about my little brother needing a surgery. We were desperate, as my brother was sick all the time and the quicker he got the surgery, the better. It hurt my heart to see him - usually extremely active and healthy - so vulnerable, and I couldn’t do anything to help.
I’m mainly a Teen Wolf blog, so I asked my followers for help.
And an absolutely incredible thing happened. You guys helped us. In a recordingly short time, we were able to gather enough money for the surgery and post-op care, which is a lot more than I’ve imagined.
Now, finally, my brother is on his way to recovery. All thanks to you. The surgery was successful and now he’s resting at home until he’s fully healed.
We want to thank each and every one of you - for every dollar and good word that you gave us. For every signal boost. For commissioning ouicatwithahat, who offered to help by drawing commissions (and who drew this amazing thank you pic as well! You’re a true sunshine!).
TL;DR: THANK YOU, TEEN WOLF FANDOM. WHOLEHEARTEDLY. YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN. This has proven me that even though we have our differences sometimes, even though sometimes it’s hard and we only see flaws in each other… I want you to remember that you helped a human being get healthy again. As a fandom. As Teen Wolf’s fans. :)
(Big thanks to people who aren’t in Teen Wolf fandom but helped nevertheless as well!!! We’re not forgetting about you, guys ♥)

There’s a beautiful sadness that runs through him.
