What is your view on identifying pronouns?

Both sources are quoted as excerpts, not the full page.

Some people now include their pronouns in their email signature.

Here is an article on the LGBT page of University of California San Francisco, a public research university.


It has become quite common in diverse and inclusive environments to add your gender pronouns in your email signature. This new better practice helps minimize misgendering and is an important strategy towards inclusivity.

Pronouns: he, him, his

Pronouns I use: she, her, hers and they, them, theirs

Some people now introduce themselves with their pronouns.

Here is an article from Carleton College, a private liberal arts school in Minnesota.

Using Pronouns

Do not say “I use female pronouns” or “I use male pronouns.”

Do not joke or say things like “Well, I use he/him/his pronouns, OBVIOUSLY.”

Don’t expect that if you ask once, you’re set forever — people’s (gender) identities can change, so check in.

Pronoun Buttons are always available at the Gender & Sexuality Center

Possible questions:

  1. Do you include your pronouns in your emails?
  2. Do you give your pronouns in introductions?
  3. What do you think about both of these situations (email/introduction pronouns)?
