Pronouns

In English, I use they/them, or ze/zem/zir as my pronouns. You are invited to use either set when referring to me.

They/them

They, when employed as a personal pronoun for a single individual, is used with the same verb forms as plural they, with the exception of the reflexive form, where themself can be used instead of themselves. While some individuals who use they pronouns have a preference for themself over themselves, I have no such preference, and consider either to be correct, when used to refer to me.

Examples

Ze/zem/zir

Unlike singular they, ze is a neopronoun—it is a newer pronoun, specifically intended as an alternative to traditional pronouns, to be used for individuals. Ze is used with the same singular verb forms as it, she, or he. I pronounce these pronouns /zi/, /zɛm/, /zɪɹ/, /zɪɹz/, /zɛmˈsɛlf/.
