A Guide to Pronouns

 

Even though singular pronouns are typically thought of as consisting solely of "he and she," many people do not fit inside this narrow construct of gender. Many of us fall outside of "he and she" and need to use pronouns that are reflective of our identities. There are many non-binary pronouns; here are few that are used at Queer Asterisk.
