he, him

a set of pronouns, commonly assigned to men and masculine gender identities.

Some people deliberately choose to avoid using he/him pronouns when discussing people – for example, when discussing potential job applicants; by its very nature, the use of he/him pronouns discloses a person’s gender and may lead to gender bias, and so many use they/them pronouns instead.

Pronoun Usage:

  • he (“he will be marching in the Pride Parade tomorrow”);
  • him (“that Pride Flag belongs to him”);
  • his (“his sense of style is remarkable”);
  • his (“that Pride Flag is his”);
  • himself (“Jay danced by himself”).
