  ABOUT PERSONAL PRONOUNS

Personal Pronouns - About
Personal pronouns have been around for centuries in many forms and languages. Pronouns are typically used when people address us directly or indirectly and how we refer to others when communicating. Traditional pronouns focus on the gender or the sex of the individual, such as he for men or she for women; however, gender-neutral pronouns have become more widely used by individuals that typically identify as transgender, gender fluid, gender non-conforming and non-binary.

To understand the importance of pronouns, imagine waking up one morning and looking at yourself in the mirror. When you look at yourself, you cannot identify your reflection in the mirror. The person looking back at you is the opposite sex to what you have always known yourself to be or your assigned gender at birth. You try to conform and accept this new identity; however, when you go for a coffee, the barista refers to you as maim or sir, instantly reminding you how everyone else sees you. It would likely upset most people; however, this is the reality for many individuals that do not conform to conventional or traditional gender identities.

Some may view gender pronouns as old fashioned and antiquated. They are generally used to distinguish between genders, so if we live in an equal society, should there be a difference between his and hers? Others will likely prefer traditional gender pronouns, whereas some may feel that those pronouns do not represent them. Ultimately it is around choice, about how you like to be addressed or referred to, and the responsibility of us all to respect a person’s choice and, when communicating with them, to use their preferred personal pronouns.
