Thank you.

"As such" is not used like this. And the sentence needs to be more specific. For example:


I'm a huge animal lover and would like to start a charity for homeless/disabled/abandoned dogs/dobermans/pit bulls/cocker spaniels/labradors.

Now I’m confused. One person tells me that it’s correct while someone else says that it can’t be used this way.

I’m not sure what to think..

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

"As such" is a hard, masculine type of phrase, generally not used for people, and when it is, it is typically used for men, not women, for example:


He used to be a Seal and as such likes physically demanding work and activities.

He's a frat boy and a Harvard Law School graduate, very aggressive, and as such would probably not be right for a woman who's looking for a church-going, family man, homebody type.

He's a hard-working MBA, but he grew up in the projects and as such there will always be a slight "edge" to him.

He's career military and will be stationed all over the world and as such probably would not be right for you, who likes living in her hometown and not moving.

Thank you for your input. I find it a bit strange though that one native speaker tells me to carry on in my usage of this word while you have a problem with it.

I guess that one can’t please every single person.

Don’t get me wrong, I still appreacite your giving me an insight into this problem. I’m just a bit surprised.

Is this really true? I have never heard of this.
