Why

Why put your pronouns in your profile? Some reasons summarized from this Twitter thread: https://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid/status/861666628160765952

  • normalize the idea of declaring pronouns
  • challenge the assumption that everyone is the gender they present as
  • challenge the idea that everyone is cis until proven otherwise
  • remove ambiguity - people will know what to call you by
