I’ve seen a few forums suggestions in the Portal Features section, so I hope this is the right place, @Sydney_H?
There are quite a few other Discourse forums that have the ability to choose which pronouns you go by. I think this would be a great addition to the forums for a few reasons:
I’m sure I’m not the only one who sees someone’s really androgynous profile picture and has no clue what pronouns to refer to them by. This would clear that up.
This is a really small but really helpful way to show that we’re taking a lot of the LGBTQ community into consideration. As a cisgender woman, I can’t pretend to talk about any part of the acronym apart from B and possibly L, but I hope it would be a welcome addition.
You don’t have to fill it out if you don’t want to. It’s optional.
I think this is a great idea, as it helps to keep a lot of people from being misgendered if this is something that upsets, frustrates or otherwise negatively affects them.
