What are your preferred pronouns?

personally i don't care. i do however greatly dislike being called a man. boy is fine. girl is fine. but MAN is too weird.

Male pronouns. I still don't quite understand the concept of gender neurtal pronouns like zi and hir. Like why make up a new kind of pronouns if there's already a set of genderneutral pronouns in the english language?

I'm currently between he/him/his and they/them/their. I definitely like the fluidity of they/them though

as far as i understand it (i'm esl) some people dislike the singular they. which is fair enough, i guess - i won't argue with other people's grammatical preferences. i don't really get why there are so many different kinds of gender neutral pronouns, though. some people seem to go out of their way to make up new ones (beyond ze and hir, which are pretty well established by now, i think), and it's very strange to me.

GONE! GONE!
Male or neutral, either is fine with me though I prefer male.

I think there really needs to be a genderless pronoun, as in one that is not tied to any identity and is perfectly polite to be used on anyone of any gender. This could be used in situations where you do not want to declare someone's gender, where you don't know what a person's gender is, and when someone's gender is not relevant to the conversation.

i get more comfortable with pronouns besides genderqueer/genderweir d pronouns the older i get. i feel that my occupying the space between both is clear and obvious, and no amount of misgendering will change who i am. some days it still really hurts being misgendered, especially when straight people want to steamroll my obvious masculinity by pretending i'm some beautiful princess through misguided kindness.

i'm genderfluid so it doesn't always settle on one or the other. i generally just ask people to refer to me as they/them for simplicity's sake.

I use he/him, but if I'm misgendered by people who know me I don't mind TOO much, especially if I'm not trying very hard? But if it's from people who know... then I get upset.

she/her. I would like to go by gender neutral pronouns sometimes but I don't like any of the existing ones so far.

I'm genderfluid, but I'm nonbinary, so neither of the binary pronouns fit quite right. I use e/em/eirs, the Spivak ones.

Then make your own! (:
Or mix and match, that's what my friend did.

Sir Sir
He/Him/His. I would say "male pronouns," but not all people who are male like those pronouns.

People see me as a female, so I am identified as "her".
I feel kind of neutral when it comes to gender, so I prefer to be regarded as myself not as a gender. I accept "her" from strangers.

My partner is male, is feminine in appearance and such, and constantly gets called "her". I believe he also is a bit neutral though when it comes to strangers. He doesn't bother correcting people.

Did I answer this at all correctly? ^^;
I hope so.
