IF SOMEONE HAS TWO SETS OF PRONOUNS, USE BOTH

being selective with the pronouns you use for a person, or just using one set you’re most comfortable with, shows a disregard for their gender identity / expression. if someone has multiple sets of pronouns, ask how they would like you to use them. if in doubt, use them all interchangeably – the same goesContinue reading “IF SOMEONE HAS TWO SETS OF PRONOUNS, USE BOTH”
