I use any pronouns and do not have ANY preferences.
I like using any because I’m still working out my gender situation and it also means that I literally can’t get misgendered, so fuck those people who do that on purpose LOL
I tend to use he/she/they for myself most of the time, but just because that’s what most people understand, especially off the internet. Neos are cool though, if you want to use them for me, you can. It’s all part of “ANY”.
Again, no preferences, I don’t care if people use a certain pronoun more than others. Everything is fine.
I also have no preference on gendered terms like “King”, “Queen” or any other. You can use whatever fits best in your eyes, I don’t mind at all!
One preference is that I am not a fan of people using “it” to refer to me, that’s personal preference as it feels a bit dehumanizing for me personally. If you want to use “it” for yourself, that’s awesome, 100% valid!
Love you all! Thank you for wanting to be respectful of my boundaries. Please don’t get in arguments with others about my pronouns because it’s not worth fighting about, I don’t care about my pronouns that much myself. I like the non-labeled life lol <3

i think even in trans spaces, many people assume that genderless nonbinary people Must Use they/them or other pronouns disconnected from "the binary," even if the assumption is based on consideration for genderless nonbinary people's comforts. but the truth is, he/him & she/her pronouns can be just as genderless as any other pronoun set. genderless people can go by she/her (and Exclusively she/her) and still be genderless.
About the it/it's pronouns. Where I am from, this is the 3rd gender we use to refer to objects, grammar wise. It's goes to the ending (idk what it's called) of epithets as well, when referring to sth without gender. It's incredibly usefull to trans people in our heavily gendered language. I use it/he pronouns, and I do not always want to mistranslate them in English using they/he. Some people need to pull their heads out of their butts.
Hi, do you know of anything with characters that use multiple sets of pronouns?
Yep! The main characters of Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller (YA fantasy) and Can't Take That Away by Steven Salvatore both use he/she/they (primarily he/him and they/them for the latter), and the love interest in The Heartbreak Bakery uses he/him and they/them as, I believe, does the main character in The Ghosts We Keep by Mason Deaver. The main character of Somebody Told Me by Mia Siegert is bigender and uses he/him and she/her.
In the Watchful City by S. Qiouyi Lu has a number of neopronouns in use, and the upcoming The Genesis of Misery by Neon Yang will have a main character who uses she/they. And to add a relevant picture book, What Are Your Words? written by Katherine Locke and illustrated by Anne Passchier has a main character who clearly uses different pronouns on different days.

girlflux culture is sometimes wanted to completely strike she/her from your pronouns list altogether so people will acknowledge your other pronouns, but at the same time hating the idea of being perceived as not a girl
So theres this thing I keep going back to every few months and I don’t know what to do so here I am asking for a little help.
A while back I found a set of neoronouns that I like, but I didn’t think much of it because I didn’t realize I was non-binary at the time. But now I found them again and did a little research to find other people that use them and stuff like that. But I found out that the neopronouns are problematic and some people say it’s fine to use them but others say you have to be a specific person to use them.
I don’t know what to do because I like them and would like to try them out, but I don’t know if I should….
The neopronouns are fae/faer
And people say that you will make the fae angry by using them or you can only be celtic pagan to use them.
I just need some opinion on what I should do….
One half of me is, a set of neopronouns can’t be problematic. (Even though people say it is and I’m confused)
And the other half is, my sexuality is already bashed so much I don’t know if it’s worth having a set of pronouns that I’ll get hate for too.
Remember everyone’s experience of being trans is unique to them—these are great guidelines for people you don’t know, but if you know someone who is trans, talk to them about their preferences and needs.
