In today’s age, people have a myriad of gender identities and expressions.
The gender binary, which labels people as exclusively masculine or explicitly feminine, can be constricting.
It creates stereotypes that can’t possibly represent the multidimensional spectrum of the human being.
As we grow beyond the gender binary, language becomes even more important.
Understanding and intentionally using gender-affirming and gender-neutral pronouns is now a key part of creating a safer, more inclusive world.
