preferred pronouns

An individual’s preference for pronouns; e.g. their desire to be referred to as he/him, she/her, they/them, etc.

To deliberately neglect to use a person’s preferred pronouns – that is, to deliberately refer to them using pronouns they do not prefer – is considered transphobic in much the same way deadnaming someone is.
