If you think you don’t need to put your preferred pronouns in your bio, that’s transphobia

Again, we try not to pick on random Twitter users because it’s never our intention to send an army of people after them, but some posts just touch on something so supremely stupid that we just have to share.
Ez from Scotland prefers to be referred to as “they” and “them,” and they’d also like you to put your preferred pronouns in your Twitter bio if you’re cis (i.e., you identify as the sex you were born with). If you don’t think that’s necessary because you’re obviously male or female … that’s transphobic.
No. Next.
No, it’s not. Next.
Does a full beard suggest that gender is obvious, or is that transphobic too? Probably the latter.
We choose to leave “preferred pronouns” out of our profiles, thanks.
You tweeted it to the world, we didn’t.
“I’m trans and i dont care if you are also trans, if you dont subscribe to my trans rules you are transphobic and hate yourself”

Oh, I'm way ahead of him. My first thought isn't "I don't need to," it's "I don't feel like it."

Whenever I see pronouns in a profile I know that this is not a person to be taken seriously.

Especially if it’s a trans “ally” who’s trying to be woke.
Why do these people, after years of telling us we have no say in their decisions and lives, always turn around and tell us what to do?

If you do this and you clearly look male/female, people will think you’re transgender even though you’re not. Bad idea and you just want something to debate or be angry about

I reject your labeling of those whose preferences you dont agree with as "cis" how I choose to be identified is none of your concern and frankly I dont appreciate your straightphobic attitude

It's cool dog, I have a pretty strong sense of identity that I don't treat like a favorite shoe brand.

Questions: If I don’t
1. Should I go to jail?
2. Will it cause offence to anyone?
3. Will I be shunned for life?
4. Why should I tell the Twitterati how I identify when I don’t even use my own name?
5. Same as Q3 but hypothetically ‘what if I did use my name?’

No, because of a very simple thing. I am happy for someone to make a mistake without assuming the very worst of them, we're human we all make mistakes. I simply choose to make room for those mistakes.

Hey, I was thinking about this and I have a question. Wouldn't this put unnecessary pressure on closeted trans people to either out themselves or put pronouns they're not really comfortable with?

(I'm not cis btw) I would however 1. If someone from my real life found out I could be put in a really bad spot and 2. I feel that my pinned tweet would help to make people comfortable.

Will pronouns come up in the Democratic debates? They did at Saturday’s Planned Parenthood candidates’ forum:

At Planned Parenthood event: a non-binary activist just asked Castro how he’ll expand sexual & reproductive health for trans people. Castro responds by first asking which pronoun the activist prefers. They replied, “I actually don’t use any pronoun,” which received some applause.

  1. No such animal exists. Personal Pronoun? What a Crock.

    A Pronoun is a Pronoun, that's it....

  2. Want to change the entire thinking on this matter?

    Place XX, or XY, after your name.

    Problem solved, and rids the world of the acronym LBGTQ, and any other loonies!

  3. Maybe, for fear of being arrested, we should address everyone we don't know as "Sh*t for brains"?
