Can I Use They/Them Pronouns And Still Be A Girl – Can I be a female but want “they” or “them” as a pronoun?
If you’re a woman who wants to use they/them pronouns, do it! There’s nothing wrong with being feminine and taking up space in the world. You are absolutely allowed to use these pronouns if you want them. If someone else tells you that they don’t think it’s OK for women to be masculine or vice versa, then that person is wrong!
Can I use they/them pronouns and still be a girl?
You can use they/them pronouns and still be a girl, woman, or man. You can also use they/them pronouns if you’re nonbinary.
You might be wondering how this works if you have a vagina and breasts (or some other body parts associated with women). The answer is that it doesn’t matter! What matters is that your gender identity matches up with the way people see themselves in their mind. A lot of trans people have been told that they are men or women because of their physical bodies–but this isn’t true for everyone who identifies as trans! If you feel like your gender identity doesn’t match the sex assigned at birth then it’s possible for someone else to recognize this too by using different words than “she” or “he.”
What are the gender-neutral pronouns?
The following pronouns are gender-neutral:
- they/them, ze/hir (pronounced “zee” and “her”)
- ey/em, ve/vis (pronounced “ayy” and “vuh”)
- ee/eemself (pronounced like the letter E)
- nee/nemself (pronounced like the letter N)
It’s important to note that these are not yet widely accepted in mainstream English. However, if you’re looking for a way to express yourself as nonbinary or genderqueer without using he or she, these might be a good option for you!
Gender-neutral pronouns are available to everyone, but you can use them only if it’s safe for you to do so.
Gender-neutral pronouns are available to everyone, but you can use them only if it’s safe for you to do so. If someone tells you that you aren’t allowed to use gender-neutral pronouns, then you aren’t allowed to use them.
It’s important that we respect other people’s right not to be addressed with gender-specific terms like “she” or “he.” This is especially true when those people are in our circles of friends or family members who may already feel alienated by society as a whole because they identify as nonbinary (neither male nor female) or transgendered.
If someone tells you that you aren’t allowed to use gender-neutral pronouns, then you aren’t allowed to use them.
If someone tells you that you aren’t allowed to use gender-neutral pronouns, then you aren’t allowed to use them. It’s as simple as that. If you feel comfortable using gender-neutral pronouns and they don’t make anyone uncomfortable, then why not?
If someone disagrees with their own gender identity (or lack thereof), then they should be able to express it however they choose–and we should all respect their wishes.
Some people are not comfortable with any pronouns at all.
Some people are not comfortable with any pronouns at all. Some prefer to be called by their name, some prefer to be called by their title and some prefer to be called by their gender identity.
Some people may feel more comfortable if you ask them what they would like you to call them before using any pronouns or titles at all. If someone has given you permission to use a specific pronoun or title, then it’s okay for others who know about this person’s preferences as well (such as friends, family members or coworkers) also follow suit!
You should check in with your friends before using nonbinary pronouns with them.
- You should check in with your friends before using nonbinary pronouns with them. Even if you are 100% sure that they will be okay with it, you should still ask them how they feel about it and respect their wishes if they aren’t okay with it.
- If someone doesn’t want to use nonbinary pronouns for you, then we recommend sticking to he/she pronouns even if this makes you uncomfortable or confused by the situation.
The decision to use nonbinary pronouns is yours alone.
The decision to use nonbinary pronouns is yours alone. You can choose to do so if it feels right, or not. If you’re worried about how others will react and/or if it’s safe for you to do so, then don’t worry about coming out as nonbinary just yet! It’s important that we all feel safe in our day-to-day lives, especially when it comes to our gender identity and expression.
If this article helped answer any questions or concerns, please let me know by commenting below! I’d love to hear from people who are exploring their identities as well as those who have been using nonbinary pronouns for years (or even decades).
Using they/them pronouns doesn’t mean that you are less of a woman or man! It just means that you’re more comfortable with being called “they” than “she” or “he.”
You can use they/them pronouns and still be a girl. You don’t have to be nonbinary to use them, either! They’re for everyone.
If you are a man or woman and want to be called by “they” or “them,” then those are the pronouns for you! Some people might say that this means that you’re less of a woman or man, but I think it’s more accurate to say that people who use they/them have their own unique way of expressing themselves–and they do so in ways that make them feel good about themselves without having to label themselves as anything else (like “nonbinary”).
So, if you’re a girl and want to use they/them pronouns, go ahead! You can still be female and have a gender identity that is not-female. You can even use them with other girls who are also transgender or nonbinary. Just make sure that the people around you are okay with this change before making it permanent in your life.
