    The name Lovato has origins in the Latin lupatus, or wolf, which then evolved over millennia into wit,
    so her name, Demi Lovato means half wit.

    if we get into a war with off-worlders,
    it won’t be due to them bein’ upset that somebody called ‘em “aliens”

    I think demi should ask them what they want to be called.
    I mean, get it from the horse’s mouth – don’t assume, demi.

    …including their pronouns

    (What? Well, yeah, I used “their” but I don’t expect that to be corrected any time soon)
