As Twitchy mentioned earlier, Wednesday is #PronounsDay, and politicians like Julián Castro and Elizabeth Warren are getting in on the act, sharing their own preferred pronouns and encouraging everyone else to do the same.
We find it kind of weird for Planned Parenthood to be giving advice on pronouns: Is it OK to call a fetus “he” or “she” before it’s born or is a fetus just an “it”? And just because you’ve found out the baby’s — um, the fetus’ — sex, isn’t it assuming its gender to call it “he” or “she”?
In any case, this is one of those rare cases where Planned Parenthood is more concerned with those allowed to be born and choose their pronouns. We like their GIF because it includes “xyr” and “zir.”
Respect people's pronouns and use them — and if you don’t know someone's pronouns, it's okay to ask. It’s also okay if you mess up a person’s pronouns by accident (it happens). Just apologize and make an effort to use the correct pronoun in the future. #PronounsDay pic.twitter.com/gSgNYbLzbz

I learned everything I need to know about pronouns from Schoolhouse Rock. That’ll be all.

I’m sorry but that’s just insane. You can’t expect people to follow this.

The last person I saw who accidently "messed up" was relentlessly lambasted. No thanks.

Stop killing innocent unborn babies, thus showing them respect. And then you can lecture the rest of us about respect.
