Approved for guides, though the part at the end with "she" could be replaced with "they" or something like that.

Really helpful guide, I didn't use it initially but after we got seriously bogged down, it was a life saver. We talked it over, my tulpa agreed to let me puppet her for a little while, and I followed the guide to the letter, until she began to wrestle control from me and I ceased all puppeting. It really helped us out.




Technically, using "they" in place of "he" or "she" is improper in our confused, mixed-up mess of a language. Every English professor and teacher I've known has taught that a writer presenting a scenario involving a hypothetical person should choose "he" or "she" and stick with it instead of using "they" because of this (regardless of whose feelings it might hurt). Granted, in English convention it's usually considered proper to go with "he", but considering the amount of female tulpas here, I think "she" is more fitting in this guide.


TL;DR, 10/10 you're beautiful just the way you are and you've been so helpful, JD's guide.

hi new and like to say I had to copy the guide to my google docs and replace any mention of gender with they/themselves/etc. I don’t want to be rude, but useing the languages official rules is in my opinion, a backwards step. Humanity is evolving and so is our language. The ‘she’ and ‘he’ although existing, don’t exist alone, there are other genders that can’t even be understood by those who have them due to society assuming that everyone is ether a he or she. I understand that could be upsetting, but I feel it’s more upsetting to be one of those genders so confused that you don’t know what to call yourself. 

even though I had to change the wording to read it, I do believe this will help me with my tulpa, as I am just starting to understand them. 
(for those curious, my tulpa is male, I’m the one unsure about their gender)

Well, good for you to say your mind- I made a thread about not calling tulpas "it" (unless they specifically go by that) but rather "they" as in "A tulpa will do what they want." 


However you should note the comments you responded to are from 2014. And you'll probably be glad to hear, singular they is becoming more accepted in formal and academic writing since then. 

The world is far, the world is wide; the man needs someone by his side.
