A Letter in the Sunday Times!

I am delighted to see a letter of mine in the Sunday Times!  A screenshot is below:
Tongue-tied  Josh Glancy imagines a fantastical world without male or female pronouns — and thus displays astonishing Anglophone solipsism (Magazine, last week). Many people around the world — speakers of Hungarian and Finnish among them — live just such an experience, with no consequences for gender relations. Furthermore, Glancy cannot imagine a love scene in which protagonists use the same pronouns. Does he not know any Anglophone homosexuals? Elijah Zachary Granet, San Diego, California
