Gender Neutral Pronouns

Definition - What does Gender Neutral Pronouns mean?

Gender neutral pronouns are pronouns that do not identitfy the gender of the the subject to which they refer. Some examples of gender netural pronounces include:



  • They
  • Their
  • We


There are many variations of gender neutral pronouns in use and some people prefer to choose their own original pronouns that resonate with their particular identity. The use of non-gender neutral pronouns is now considered archaic writing in many professions unless one knows, without a doubt, the gender that the subject identifies with.

Kinkly explains Gender Neutral Pronouns

As traditional pronouns (she/he etc) assume that the subject identitifies as part of the gender binary, it can be problematic using them in speech or in writing when one does not know how the individuals choose to identify. It is always a good idea to ask what someone's preferred pronouns are to avoid unintentionally misgendering them.
