Re: Nonbinary person waves "hi"

I think of all those, I like "mainstream" in this context the best. The mainstream is where much of the water in the river flows, but the sidestreams have their own value and charm -- and so much of the interesting stuff is over in the eddies and pools. And anyone who's got any experience with whitewater navigation understands how important being able to get out of the mainstream can be.

I expect other people will have their own favorites. It will be interesting to see whether anyone else checks in.

Re: Nonbinary person waves "hi"

Yes, I use "mainstream" a lot because it doesn't necessarily imply "better" just "popular."
