Instagram now lets you choose your own pronouns

Instagram has added a new feature to their platform that lets users choose their own pronouns to give them more individuality.

Users can now choose from a wide range of pronouns to be displayed next to their profile. Users can have the option of displaying their pronouns publicly or just to their followers. If you’re under 18, it’ll automatically be set to followers only.

While the new pronouns are only accessible in the US, the UK, Canada and UK are set to be next on the list.

And in case you need a quick English language refresher, a pronoun is how you refer to yourself – he/him/his, she / her / hers, they / them / theirs and so on. The full list is below.

  • co / cos
  • e / ey / em / eir
  • fae / faer
  • he / him / his
  • she / her / hers
  • mer / mers
  • ne / nir / nirs
  • nee / ner / ners
  • per / pers
  • they / them / theirs
  • thon / thons
  • ve / ver / vis
  • vi / vir
  • xe / xem / xyr
  • ze / zie / zir / hir

If the right pronoun isn’t available from the list, Instagram has advised users to submit new pronouns in an online form.
