College pronoun FAQ: regularly ask for others' pronouns

College pronoun FAQ: regularly ask for others' pronouns | 21 Dec 2017 | A resource guide at Bard College encourages students, faculty, staff, and visitors, to avoid using "gender binary" language. The Pronoun FAQ, found on the school's Office for Gender Equity resource webpage, encourages community members to "avoid using gender binary language such as 'ladies and gentlemen,' 'boys and girls.'" Instead, they are urged to use "'everybody,' 'folks,' or, 'all people.'" The guide also states that simply asking another person about gender identity once is insufficient. "If I ask someone their pronouns once, is that enough?" the guide asks. "No, the best practice is to ask regularly because gender identity is not always fixed and static, and some people may change their pronouns."
