when people in your life tell you they would prefer you use a different pronoun for them;
instead of complaining, protesting, and making excuses for why it's too hard for you to do, why not try being like these kids?
@FuchsiaShock This is so sweet! And so true! Thanks for posting!
When our friend wrote us that she would prefer to hear 'she/her' instead of 'he/him', my husband and I immediately started to practise. And the next time we saw her, it felt already quite natural (and we didn't use 'he/him' once, not even by mistake 😃).
I believe that people have the right to their own pronouns, so when someone changes theirs, who am I to tell I won't be using it? How arrogant would that be?!
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
