Have you ever noticed pronouns such as “she/her” written in someone’s email signature? Pronouns are words that can be used to refer to someone without using their name – most commonly, “she” or “he.” But, there are a growing number of people who say they do not identify with gender binaries of “man” or “woman” and therefore prefer to use other pronouns such as “they.” Supporters say using a person’s choice of pronouns fosters an inclusive environment and affirms a person’s own gender identity. Some critics say they do not want to feel forced by others to use these pronouns -- or get “canceled” if they refuse. While this issue is divisive and can’t be solved in an hour, open dialogue between both sides could help foster better understanding and awareness.
