I'm curious as to what people's preferred pronouns are, i always get misgendered and called her and it's a bit invalidating.

ze/hir, but most people still call me her. At least my friends that I'm out to seem to do a pretty good job of remember to use the right name and pronouns.

I go by she! I always like it when people tell me if they want me to use a different pronoun when we meet, that way I can use it from the get-go and not have to guess.

He/him, but for some reason I really like they/them :S I think it's because of my past experiences of new people calling me "he" and my friends/family "correcting" them by saying "no, she".

I like they/them. Really neutral and gives me a lot of space for gender fluidity day to day.

They/them, though I'll answer to other gender neutral pronoun forms, too.
I'm currently learning Spanish and I frequently mess up my own pronouns, wavering between masculine and feminine forms. I feel like I should learn to refer to myself in the feminine in Spanish since I'm generally read as female, but I often lapse into male pronouns without noticing.

I use he/him now, but when I did use ze/hir very few people would actually use it, even if they knew those were my preferred pronouns. It's really great to see that you're getting the pronouns you prefer from the friends you're out to

I prefer singular they/them/their also. Anything gender-neutral suits me well.

I prefer either her/him or singular they/them. When out in public or amongst cis people I tend to use he/him since it's easier, but with my trans* friends I prefer they/them because they understand it.

How is "hir" pronounced as opposed to "her?" If someone could give me the phonetics of that, that'd be awesome!

It's pronounced like "here" or "hear", if that helps any.

My problem with gender neutral pronouns is that they don't make sense based on the English language. Ze and hir seem fairly acceptable online, though I really think they look ugly. I have a fondness for se instead, it's just that z that makes me cringe. Hir sounds just too much like 'her' for my taste, so I prefer zir/sir/cir/pick yer poison. IRL I use they/them, and just make efforts to use gender neutral nouns and names. My sibling, my coworker, etc.

If someone told me they had a preferred pronoun though I'd try use it.

It's quite interesting. I'm studying linguistics, and in China, they don't have gender modifiers. Basically, it's impossible to miss someone's pronouns!

I go by he/him exclusively! However, if someone misses, I am never offended. After all, its not their fault that our language uses pronouns!
