Educate yourself and build respect in all relationships.

Valentine’s Day gift — Bring your friends and family for this fun and free class!

One of the fascinating linguistic enhancements that is becoming mainstream is the use of pronouns to refer to oneself and others. The importance of educating ourselves to the emergence and use of “non-traditional” descriptors fosters an appreciation and respect of the uniqueness of each individual.

Did you know that “preferred pronouns” is a misleading phrase? Pronouns are solid boundaries, not preferences. When you ask someone to respect your pronouns, you are asking them to respect YOU and your authentic gender expression.

This class will be an open discussion and participants are encouraged to bring their personal experiences in this arena of using personal pronouns.
