Throw another shrimp on the arvie m'laddie?

arvie is afternoon ( arvo actually ) ...barbie and while the phrase is common no one calls prawns shrimp in Australia tho the phrase endures from Crocodile Dundee I think....Americanized.

Is that where the phrase came from? :lol: :lol:
I figured arvie meant evening from Lak's sentence. Because it rhymes with barbie...I was being purposefully dumb.
As for the thread's subject, we already use they when the gender is unknown. We can also use it when someone is gender fluid, and to me it's the same thing, so doesn't seem unnatural to adapt that usage. Someone who is gender fluid
(or whatever other term means not necessarily male or female) is, from my perspective, an unknown gender.
