“The Freedom to choose your Pronoun” by Jennifer Conlin is an interesting read that entails the inclusion of pronouns for the first time by companies such as Google. It explains the happiness that is felt within the LGBTQ+ community when they feel that they are properly represented. Later in the article, the audience gets a first glance at new names and labels people put on themselves and want to be identified, such as bi-curious and polyamorous. The journal then explains how more people today are more accepting of one person’s sexuality than gender pronouns, which feels threatening to some gender neutral people who go by non conforming pronouns such as they/them. While some people do feel threatened by it, it seems more facilities like college campuses intend to become more progressive and to take the time to get to know the individual in that aspect, in which people who are part of the LGBT community seem to like. While it isn’t an immediate progressive way, it is a start, and for many that is enough for now.
