Someday, using gender-neutral pronouns will be as automatic as breathing. Until then, there’s A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns, a comic book that clarifies how to use they/them pronouns and why using inaccurate pronouns (or assuming what the correct ones are) is so hurtful. The book includes tips and scripts on how to ask about a person’s pronouns, what to say if you commit a pronoun faux paus or misgender someone, and how to be an ally to people who use they/them pronouns. There’s also advice and encouragement for those who use they/them pronouns and become frustrated navigating our binary-centric society. Local genderqueer artist and Daddy co-founder Archie Bongiovanni teamed up with cisgender male writer and restaurant owner Tristan Jimerson to create the guide; their humor and authentic repartee make learning about respectful pronoun use less uncomfortable and more fun.
