The Biden administration complained that it didn’t get much help from President Trump during the transition period, but whoever’s running the government’s websites and social media accounts now is certainly on the ball. As Twitchy reported, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel briefly became the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza Wednesday before the title was changed back without explanation.
People are poking around the White House website now, and GLAAD was happy to see that the contact form for the White House now asks for your pronouns, although they don’t get into “zhe” territory: You can pick she, he, they, “other,” or go without one.

Plus, probably as a courtesy to first lady Jill Biden, you can pick the prefix “Dr.,” or if you’re really on the cutting edge, “Mx.”
prefixes too! pic.twitter.com/RORqpbdf66

Great! No one asked for this!

No one asked for it, but they’re thrilled to death to have it. Well, most people in the comments are.
You would think they would have more options. Their bigotry is showing.

To be honest, he’s right: What better way to “otherize” someone than to make them select “Other”? Just make it a text box and let everyone enter whatever they want.
I identify as a toaster. Where is my option ??♀️

They are missing my preferred pronoun.
Darth or Sith Lord.

That would be on the ‘Other (specify)’ area.
Hope your light sabre skills are up to scratch

Pretty non-inclusive of them to not offer “Thee/Thou”

I'll keep my pronouns to myself but I'd be glad to share a few verbs with them.

They need to add a “WTF”

At least it's better than Facebook's 20+ options.

So WOKE… So COURAGEOUS ?
— Alex Guerrero (@AG8211) January 20, 2021
the fact that “they” and “other” are last on the list is really problematic.
— mpp75214 (@mpp75214) January 20, 2021
You should let them know via the contact form.
When did pronouns become such a big deal??
— drew (@drew11v) January 20, 2021
You have to ask? It was 2018 when the powers that be introduced International Pronouns Day.
If you think you don’t need to put your preferred pronouns in your bio, that’s transphobia https://t.co/anxwHvGYGk
