We normally wouldn’t give the time of day to this story, but the best part is seeing how CNN has immediately adopted singer Demi Lovato’s new pronouns, with them announcing that they are changing them after they undertook “a lot of self-reflective work.”
Singer Demi Lovato has revealed they are nonbinary and are changing their pronouns, telling fans they are "proud" to make the change after "a lot of self-reflective work." https://t.co/4htf3uASpJ

Today is a day I'm so happy to share more of my life with you all- I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary & will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward 💖

People work hard but the people who edit pronouns on Wikipedia work harder

Rob Picheta reports for CNN:
Singer Demi Lovato has revealed they are nonbinary and are changing their pronouns, telling fans they are “proud” to make the change after “a lot of self-reflective work.”
Lovato added they came to the decision “after a lot of healing and self-reflective work.”
Suddenly those pronouns like “xer” make sense. Good for … them, but this is confusing.

Will they go away now? Or is this in anticipation of their new album about all their reflective work?

Imagine being able to screenshot this and send it back in time to the CNN news desk when they were a legitimate news organization. They would assume it was from an alternate dimension.
