Rorley

Hey Chargers! In light of international pronoun day which was Wednesday October 16th we bring you this important message! You can’t always know what someone’s pronouns are by looking at them. Asking and correctly using someone’s pronouns is one of the most basic ways to show your respect for their gender identity.


When someone is referred to with the wrong pronoun, it can make them feel disrespected, invalidated, dismissed, alienated, or dysphoric (often all of the above).


It is a privilege to not have to worry about which pronoun someone is going to use for you based on how they perceive your gender. If you have this privilege, yet fail to respect someone else’s gender identity, it is not only disrespectful and hurtful, but also oppressive. Words matter y’all.

Hey Chargers, today Wednesday the 16th it is “International Pronoun Day”.  It’s a day to be more aware of people’s pronouns. She/her, He/Him, They/Them, etc. We want to make sure everyone is comfortable in their own skin and one way to do that is to address them the way they wish to be addressed. If you don’t know someone's pronouns - just Ask!
