We are in a world that evolves every day, every time we wake up there is new news, a new perspective on humanity. This is something that allows us to express ourselves, we are constantly in an evolutionary state, and thanks to this we must find a way to adapt and understand the changes we face. Sometimes there are changes around us that we do not realize, for example, today we are going to talk about the importance of pronouns and because it is important to address a person with their correct pronoun, I am not talking about the pronoun simply as something that they teach us in Spanish class, but as a complement to a person’s gender identity. In recent years it has become something more talked about and more important, since many people want to feel themselves at all times, alone and with other people. Personally it is something that I am just getting to know, but I love the idea of knowing, understanding and learning and respecting people and their individuality. That is why today we are going to talk a little about pronouns, their importance and how the generality in our humanity must end so that we do not end the identity of others.
It is important to respect a person’s identity by using the gender pronouns that the person prefers. Some people may prefer to be identified with masculine or feminine pronouns, such as «he, he, yours» or «she, her, yours.» Other people may prefer to be identified with more gender-neutral terms such as «they, yours.» Some people have no problem with any pronouns, as long as they are spoken to with respect. Unsure of a person’s pronouns? Politely ask her if she has any preferences. From my perspective, we are all catching on as we encounter changes in our lives, and honestly it is better to try to understand than to ignore the situation. We show more respect by asking someone her preference when called to match her identity, than by ignoring the situation because it is uncomfortable or because it seems unnecessary to us. Remember that we must always find the point where we accept and provide love and not ignorance.
A very good resource that we want to share with you is a web page, in which you can select a pronoun and you can identify when it can be used, they explain a little about its origin, what it means and who it is addressed to.
