Wth? Someone on social media posted a picture of their cat….

And gave it pronouns!! They said “ This is ______, she/her”.
I know that many people these days assign a pronoun to themselves- but I have never seen it extended to pets too!
When talking about your pet, do you tell people their pronoun too? Or just your own pronoun?

"Hey you" is gender neutral and it seems to work for damn near everybody.

@CarolinaCrushDaddy I totally agree!

i just say this is jules or romes, no pronouns

I get people want to be addressed correctly but I find its just getting silly now

we'll start giving pronouns to inanimate objects soon and caring for them and growing attachments
@Gangstress My father gilded his tea spoon and call her Aurelia. at least a tea spoon has female gender here. 😂

@CrazyMusicLover also all my plants are female , i might be a bit biased but they all have girl names. We even called the hamster princess then realised he was a Prince 😅

Well, I like to tell people whether a pet is a boy or a girl. I don't see much difference there.

LOL I just use "they" if I don't know the animals sex. Same with people. Pretty simple really.
I don't have pets but I noticed people usually ask on their own. "Is it she or he?"
Also, animals are gendered in my native language so people often use the gender that is normally used. For example, a dog is male so people naturally use male gender by default unless proven otherwise.

I can appreciate the pronoun thing a lot. It’s really kind of people. But I think in that case I’d smile awkwardly and just not say anything about it.

@MalteseFalconPunch exactly! In people, it’s one thing, because transitioning is pretty common for humans- but I don’t think anyone has ever tried to transition their pet. 😂

@Mardrae I get what they’re trying to say. And it’s nice, like I said. But just…nah. It’s cool. You don’t have to.
