They/Them Pronouns

Have you ever used they/them pronouns for someone? We’d bet the answer is yes.

 

You find a wallet on the ground and say, “oh no! Someone dropped their wallet!”

You see someone with a flat tire on the road and say, “I hope they are okay!”

You see a really cute dog on Instagram that is your dream dog, “their human is so lucky!”

 

We use they/them pronouns in singular form all the time—and we have been since the 1300s!
