Watch ALL TEN EPISODES NOW on
Around ten years ago, when I first started hearing "they/them" being used for nonbinary and genderqueer friends, I questioned the use, as well as the grammar. I also felt a momentary stab at feminism--why can't we simply expand what it means to be female identified? I used the appropriate pronouns out of respect and care even before the full understanding settled in. The binary is too limiting, conservative, and just not enough. We are ever changing and so is our language- to reflect and inspire greater possibilities.
This is a great site to explain pronouns, identity, and how to be respectful on both sides:
My pronouns are she/her/they/them. My title is Mx.
But you can also just call me Yin.
in this intergenerational Chinese story.
This is what I've been waiting for...
