Georgetown Law School’s Student Bar Association asked students to designate their preferred pronouns on Zoom, LinkedIn, and in their email signatures Thursday morning.
An email obtained by the Washington Free Beacon asks law students to stand "in solidarity and support" of their transgender and "nonbinary" peers by putting their pronouns in usernames for online meeting platforms and social media sites.
The email to students at one of the nation’s top-ranked law schools also defined pronouns and explained pronoun usage as a part of speech.
Displaying pronouns "helps to ensure that everyone, regardless of their gender identity, will be correctly addressed" in class, the email states. Students who identify as their biological sex should also display their preferred pronouns to avoid "isolating" students who go by different pronouns, including "they" and "ze."
"Students may be afraid to out themselves if they do not know their environment is supportive," the email says. "When we all include our pronouns as part of our daily life, it normalizes the action of doing so. This five-minute gesture contributes towards a more welcoming and friendly community for all."
