Having pronouns in your bio is important to normalise the practise, not just gor trans people but everybody. If only trans people do it, then it becomes a marker of who is trans, if you all do it then it's just a standard thing. I know it can be annoying to be asked over and over yo do it, but it is important

@CornishRepublicanArmy Paul Joseph Watson has pronouns in his bio (the right winger) so I think it's not a trans marker anymore at least, so success(?)

@Some_Person @CornishRepublicanArmy Like, not sarcastic pronouns, but actual ones? PJW? Really? I feel a bit better about things after all.

@CornishRepublicanArmy I don’t think Gor is likely to be a very fun place for trans people. 😉

@CornishRepublicanArmy Also if you work a job where you send emails, put your pronouns in your email signature! Super easy and professional, cis friends! ✨


I hate doing this. Everyone thinks mine are a joke so they jump down my throat so I'm forced to used ones I don't like. I'd rather have people yelling at me for not having them than having people yelling at me for using ones they don't like or assume are a joke.

@CornishRepublicanArmy At least then I'm being criticized for something that's actually TRUE.

I will start doing it when I can be reasonably sure people won't give me shit for them being non-standard.

Because it REALLY sucks to have people think I'm mocking trans-people when I'm legitimately not. That's not remotely what I'm going for yet I'm always forced to defend it. IT SUCKS.

I get harassed a hell of a lot less when I opt out entirely.


"Annoying"? Nah I'm cis and I love it. Years of being misgendered because I guess my usernames weren't sufficiently girly or something...? Always a joy to note the sudden status downgrade when a roomful of guys suddenly found out I wasn't one. :P

LB: This is why I have my pronouns in the profile for all of my alts.
(At least the active ones, might be unused accounts somewhere without)
