Pronouns

Background

I am genderfluid, which means the states of gender I experience change and vary, more specifically a polyfluid enby (non-binary person). As such, pronouns are a little tougher to pin down as different pronouns feel better at different times, and some that might make me uncomfortable one day, may be fine another day. I tend towards gender neutral pronouns and neopronouns.

How to refer to me

If you refer to me in the third-person, please respect what is listed below:

  1. No pronouns – refer to me by name.
  2. One of the below sets of pronouns on this page:
    1. they/them/their
    2. ne/nim/nirs
    3. zhe/hir/hirs
    4. ir/ihm/irs
  3. Any set listed on my Pronouny profile: https://pronouny.xyz/u/rainyfern

There are sometimes additional sets below that I am also trying out, please feel free to use them too.
