The U.S. State Department on Wednesday acknowledged “International Pronouns Day,” sharing a post explaining how it is becoming “increasingly common for people to ‘share their pronouns’” weeks after stranding dozens of Americans in Afghanistan and largely failing to address the lingering concerns.
“Today on International Pronouns Day, we share why many people list pronouns on their email and social media profiles. Read more here on @ShareAmerica,” the State Department tweeted, sharing an article titled, “Why do many Americans list pronouns on social media profiles?”

The article itself speaks to the trend of individuals, mainly those who identify on the left end of the political spectrum, putting preferred pronouns in their bios.
