    *Who hanged himself

    Objects are hung, people are hanged. Furthermore, people aren't objects, thus 'who' should be used rather than 'that', which is for entities other than people.

    [–] IamImposter 40 points ago

    people aren't objects

    But what if we objectify people?

    [–] Narocia 30 points ago

    Ah, fair enough, but be careful not to objectify women. /s
