Home » About » Pronouns

I’m nonbinary and identify more specifically as genderfluid. I move between different points of nonbinary gender; these feelings generally correspond to the pronouns that I prefer to use at any given time. This page provides pronunciation for my pronouns and additional information about what I’m experiencing.

In general, they/them/theirs is fine in reference to me; it very rarely causes dysphoria. I note the others because usage of the correct one at the correct time can cause gender euphoria, which is a much rarer feeling that I would love to experience more often. So, for those interested in the full details of my feelings about my gender, read on.

I use four sets of pronouns:

they/them/theirs

  • They went to the park.
  • I went with them.
  • They brought their frisbee.
  • At least I think it was theirs.
  • They threw the frisbee to themselves.
    (Or: They threw the frisbee to themself.)

ae/aer/aers

  • Ae went to the park.
  • I went with aer.
  • Ae brought aer frisbee.
  • At least I think it was aers.
  • Ae threw the frisbee to aerself.

ei/em/eirs

  • Ei went to the park.
  • I went with em.
  • Ei brought eir frisbee.
  • At least I think it was eirs.
  • Ei threw the frisbee to eirself.
    (Or: Ei threw the frisbee to emself.)

S./per/pers

  • S. went to the park.
  • I went with per.

Fluidity

I track my pronoun preference twice per day. View the timeline, which begins on February 12, 2016. Please note that I do not use she/her/hers pronouns and have only included it for my own reference to track social dysphoria levels.
