Q&A: “Do you know any non-binary pronouns besides they/them?”
I am pronoun-confused. Do you know any non-binary pronouns besides they/them?
there are many, many gender neutral pronouns in the English language besides they / them / their. to throw out a few of them as examples:
- co / co / cos
- e(y) / em / eir
- ne / nem / nir
- ve / ver / vis
- xe / xem / xyr
- ze / hir / hir
again, those are just a few. see list of gender neutral pronouns on Wiktionary.org for even more pronouns. there’s also more detailed information about the history and usage of various gender neutral pronouns in English (and other languages) on Nonbinary.org’s wiki. last but not least, there’s also the option of using no pronouns at all, which many people seem to forget is even an option.
if knowing how to use certain pronouns is confusing or difficult for you, you may be interested in checking out the interactive app/site Xe by @minus18 which shows you how to use some of the more popular pronouns. there’s also the much loved Pronoun Dressing Room which is customizable and able to show you how to use any / all pronouns.
hope this helps, anon.
