4. What Are Gender Pronouns & How To Use Them
Everyone deserves to be addressed in a way that respects who they are. Asserting gender pronouns is a great way to support inclusivity, fight against assumptions about gender, and create a safer environment for transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming folx. When starting off with using pronouns, there’s a bit of a learning curve, and it’s normal to have some discomfort and nerves.
In this episode, I break down what pronouns are, why they matter, how to use them, and what to do if you mess up. I also discuss the psychology behind resistance to pronoun usage and the prevalence that I’m seeing leading companies encourage and normalize their use. Through learning more about pronouns, you’ll feel more comfortable giving them a try, helping to support gender inclusivity.
