Question: Don’t You Forget About He (and They)

Riley asks…

I’m genderfluid, with (officially) no preference regarding pronouns – or at least, that’s what I tell people. Being dfab (designated female at birth), I’ve responded to she/her for my whole life. I don’t mind this, and in fact I’m used to it, but some variety would be nice.

How could I convince squad to change up the pronouns they use to describe me? (My particular goal is for my best friend at least to use different pronouns.)

    Even for supportive friends and family, changing pronouns seems to be almost as difficult as learning a second language. Consistently using the right word in quick conversation takes practice.
