Just a bit curious about villager pronouns since Genji just reffered to Kitt as "them." I thought it was interesting because Kitt's clearly pretty feminine--and also Nintendo isn't the most progressive company when it comes to that type of thing, so naturally one would think Kitt would use she/her pronouns ^^;. Is this just Genji being weird or do some villagers actually use pronouns other than she/her or he/him?

Yeah, it does sound a bit strange when they say '"them", but I think it's just so that particular bit of speech can be used for any villager, regardless of gender. Although you'd think that it wouldn't be hard to have one with he/him pronouns for male villagers and she/her pronouns for female villagers. Weird!

Well, "Kitt" may refer to her and her baby...

Or Nintendo was a little bit lazy with the dialogue and didn't want to get into gender specifics, just saying them. That's the most likely reason.

With some dialogue though it uses gender specifics.

Moe was talking about Canberra and said she was sneezing a lot. He then said he hopes that doesn't mean she is allergic to him.



Tex most always refers to Lucy as a she.



My villagers rarely use the they/them pronouns lol

It's not common...just an oversight. In one villager-villager convo, the wrong characters say the wrong lines

I think Nintendo had something go wrong with pronouns. Ive had villagers refer to females as "he" or "him". Ive also had villagers use "they" or "them", I thought it was kind of strange when it happened too.

Yeah, I've heard Mira refer to villagers as "them" before.

Also, one of my villagers referred to a player who had visited before as "he" when she is a "she"

I've had my villagers refer my female villagers as male pronouns.

I've had my former villagers in a friend's town call me a he.

I don't think it needs to be over analyzed, or that it was on purpose. I think the game glitches when a female character is wearing something that is considered "masculine clothing" (or in my case, my character has one of the "male haircuts"), or vice versa (when a male character wears "feminine clothing"). The same might go for villagers? I'm not sure.

Oh! And the second post is exactly right. Some of the dialogue is made so that it can be applied to any villager, without having to program the additional "<< 'dialogue' << villager.gender << 'more dialogue here.';

Why is it called New Leaf, if the leaf still has a hole in it?

I think one of my WiFi friends dreamed of my town and he was a guy, and Canberra called him a she.


Sorry dude Canberra is weird sometimes
