In some of my books I have characters who are neither male or female. The easiest thing I know to do since I feel like using 'it' is disrespectful, is to make them more masculine or feminine depending on how they feel, or what they prefer to go by. The problem I have is sometimes it's not that simple. How do I go about making characters who have no real gender, how should I refer to them if it isn't appropriate? At one point they were in a genderless form and I trouble alternating between he/she, or using their names etc. What should I do? Are there any suggestions (that don't involve getting rid of them as beings who have no real gender only forms).
