Pronouns... what's this? The Trials and Tribulations of Sharing Pronouns
Pronouns are words like they, she, he and ze, that stand in for nouns and are used to refer to people in the singular third person. Oftentimes pronouns are associated with gender which is incredibly problematic when the gender of a person is unknown. Because of this, people make assumptions about an individual’s gender based on their name, appearance or how they act. These assumptions can be incorrect, and despite correctness, making assumptions sends a dangerous and oppressive message… in order to be a certain gender people have to look, or act a particular way.
