“Ey/em/eir” pronouns are a set of gender-neutral pronouns that some individuals use as an alternative to traditional gender-specific pronouns like “he,” “him,” “she,” or “her.” These pronouns are designed to be inclusive of non-binary, genderqueer, or genderfluid individuals whose gender identities do not align with the binary concept of male or female.
Here’s how “ey/em/eir” pronouns are used:
Ey (subject pronoun) is going to the store.
I saw em (object pronoun) at the park.
This is eir (possessive pronoun) book.
These pronouns are intended to provide a way for individuals to express their gender identity more accurately and comfortably. The use of “ey/em/eir” and other gender-neutral pronouns contributes to creating a more inclusive and respectful environment for people of diverse gender identities. It’s important to ask for and use the pronouns that individuals prefer to ensure that you are respecting their gender identity. Pronoun inclusivity is a fundamental aspect of promoting respect and support for all individuals, regardless of their gender identity.
