She Prefers The Pronouns They

If you don’t know a person’s preferred pronouns, always ask, or just use they instead of he/she.

It’s Trans Awareness Week, this week, so let’s put some energy in bringing awareness to and thinking about respecting each other’s pronouns, especially when someone has made it clear that they would like to be referred in a certain way. If you don’t know a person’s preferred pronouns, always ask, or just use they instead of he/she. Pronouns are an important part of a person’s construction of their identity and how they feel about themselves. By respecting a person’s pronouns, you show them that you respect their identity and narrative.
