a set of pronouns, commonly associated with nonbinary gender identities, although not exclusively, either, as they are also used when referring to people in the plural third-person (e.g. “they marched in the Pride Parade“), but also in a general neutral way, that is, either deliberately not to disclose a person’s gender, or when the gender is unknown.
Some people deliberately choose to use gender-neutral pronouns in order not to disclose a person’s gender and thus avoid gender bias.
