appearance doesn’t equal pronouns

let’s normalise the act of asking for and giving pronouns when we meet new people

you can never know how someone identifies & what pronouns they use based just on how they look – you need to ask them

if you can’t ask – use they/them until you know.

gendered language can be super harmful so making small changes to be more gender neutral and inclusive will go a long way.

for example, instead of saying “the woman in the hat” say “the person”. instead of gendering groups of people eg. gentlemen & women, use “everyone” “people” “persons” “folks”

it’s a privilege not having to worry about how someone will gender you, based on how they perceive your gender identity
