    What are your preferred pronouns? I personally prefer masculine pronouns, but don't mind neutral ones too much.

    I prefer masculine pronouns, even though I still keep being referred to by feminine pronouns... It's rather annoying, really...

    I prefer masculine pronouns, but I don't mind if someone uses neutral ones. My outward appearance is unmistakably male, so it's not as if anyone in person would have to guess my gender. Nonetheless, people have assumed I was female going by what I write online alone.

    Masculine pronouns, but nobody's ever used them for me, so I'd be surprised and then ecstatic at first, I guess. Once somebody called me sir, which made my day, even if it was online and my avatar had a male base, but still XD

    Masculine pronouns (he/him) are fine with me, but I also don't have any objections if someone were to use they or my first name.

    Masculine, although neutral is also fine.

    Other. I really don't care as long as it isn't used disrespectful/with the intent to provoke.

    I voted masculine pronouns, but I don't care if someone jokingly called me a she. I don't get offended by that, just the opposite - I find it quite funny. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: I always call people around me (regardless of gender) gurrl or she, anyway. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    I'm a guy, so he/his will suffice.

    I prefer masculine pronouns and they seem more fitting, although I don't get upset if someone uses feminine pronouns by accident or because they don't know better :slight_smile:
    Neutral pronouns are also very good when referring to me.
    So I prefer he/him but any pronouns go.

    That is what has left me wondering if I should mention mu preferred pronouns to my English, German and Swedish teachers at school or not... It's not that she/her bother me, I just don't always recognise it's me they're talking about when they use feminine pronouns :grin:

    I don't care, so I voted other.

    I play a game that's meant for guys, and so everyone on there assumes I'm a guy and refers to me as such. It doesn't bother me or feel weird in the slightest.

    I prefer male pronouns but I'm open to female pronouns because I do drag and it's a popular thing to use female pronouns when referring to a drag queen. I'm okay, just as long as it's not meant to be used as a way of showing that you're not accepting of my transition. Just do not for whatever reason, use my birth name. Ever.

    I prefer masculine pronouns, but neutral doesn't bother me either.

    People call me by feminine pronouns because I'm a girl. Honestly, I would feel more comfortable with masculine pronouns. I hate the way it sounds when a boy says "she". Much of the time, you can hear the way they think of women as inferior just by the way they say the pronoun. When I am assumed to be a boy online and called "he", I feel this little moment of happiness: boys are actually seeing me as an equal, not as some weak and fragile girl! I wouldn't have a problem with gender neutral pronouns. I have always felt that calling a tomboy by feminine pronouns is awkward. However, if I asked people to call me by masculine pronouns, it would look like I am just trying to be as special as trans people without actually being trans and facing the struggles that trans people face.

    She all the way!!! All my friends and brother try their best, but it has to be especially hard since I still go by my name Henry. Haven't thought too much bout a name yet. The plan is, I'll start doing things like expressing myself once I come out to my dad.

    I'm confused by pronouns. Most of the time when someone calls me "she" I'm disappointed. If someone calls me "he" then I'm uncomfortable. Gender neutral pronouns would make me feel like an alien. I honestly don't know what I want to be called. I feel guilty because most of my life, I've been okay with being called a "she." Now I don't like it, and I'm afraid if I ask people to call me something different, they'll think I'm doing it to be "special." This whole thing is confusing and it's bumming me out. :icon_sad:

    I really don't understand why all of a sudden I don't like being called by female pronouns. Maybe it's been in my conscience most of my life, but I just didn't know it. I really don't know. I feel like a fraud. :eusa_liar

    I go by masculine pronouns, but I do not mind if people use "they" pronouns with me.
