Pronouns[edit]

So I suppose we have to talk about pronoun usage for non-binary intersex people. This issue has come up more often with people on this list, and a common solution is to write around pronouns entirely, or to "pick one" when the person has no preference. Viloria seems like the perfect case study to discuss how we deal with pronouns, though.

  • Is it alright to use unusual pronouns throughout an article if they are explained in the lead?
  • How would this be handled for non-binary people that are talked about in less-related articles?

I suppose we either have to use preferred pronouns when possible, or keep awkwardly writing around them. Thoughts? ~Mable (chat) 08:45, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
