Names and Pronouns

Pronouns are words we use to replace someone’s name or title, and in English they are marked for gender. You cannot know what pronouns someone uses just by looking at them, even when someone does not “look” trans, genderqueer, etc. Using someone’s pronouns correctly is important because it shows that you respect them.
