I am subscribed to a weekly newsletter from an American company. Almost in each email they refer to their employees as "human". For example:
This weekend human Alice participated at a tech event ...
I'm not a native English speaker, but personally I love this.
Is it a good thing to call people "humans"?
Can I say that my best friend is an "amazing human"?
I think this is gender neutral, isn't it? What are the pros/cons? Can this be used in formal contexts?
Why would someone dislike calling people "humans"? When can I safely use it?
