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 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 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 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. went to the park.
- I went with per.
- S. brought per frisbee.
- At least I think it was pers.
- S. threw the frisbee to perself.
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.
