Be a pronoun professional in three easy steps:
1) Add your pronouns to your profile
2) Discover and use the pronouns people have in their bios before interacting with them
3) If you don't know their preferred pronouns default to they/them and don't presume anything

Should probs add a bit extra to step 1: If you don't prefer any or don't want to say, consider noting that instead so people know what's what x

is it still ok to say "dude". i feel like that ones gender neutral?

@flapjack It's a touchy one for a lot of people, so I wouldn't personally

@flapjack Unless the person you're calling dude has said it's fine or encourages it with them, of course!

@Shrigglepuss thank you, i think this is a really good and concise guide!


3a) be like me and rephrase stuff to avoid using third person pronouns because you're too lazy to remember them
