Social media app Instagram now allows users to add their pronouns to their bios!

"Instagram has always been a place where users can express and be themselves - and with this latest feature, IG is excited to normalize pronoun usage while promoting a more thoughtful community," the company said in a statement. 

Users can add up to four pronouns to their bio. They are able to choose from he/him/his, she/her/hers, they/them/theirs, ze/zir, zie/hir, per/pers, xe/xem/xyr, fae/faer, ve/ver/vis, vi/vir/vis, and e/ey/em/eir.

The new feature launched today in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia!

Professional connection site LinkedIn made the same move earlier this year. As more and more people begin to use pronouns outside of the binary, the inclusive move helps normalize asking all gender pronouns and allows users to address others as they want to be addressed, a simple sign of respect.
