So I've been trying to learn Thai for a little while now, but I have a dilemma. I notice that Thai, like a lot of other languages, is very gendered. I see, at least in what I've studied, that guys use "krap" and women use "kaa". But what about people who don't identify as either. Is there something gender neutral or in the middle? I've heard "kap" used before. Is there anything else?

there is "ha" which was used for awhile, not super popular anymore. i found it a bit strange (outdated?) so never used it.

i struggled with this too, which is why my "khaa" sounded so gruff (and probably very rude!).
