“X” Marks our XXIVth Letter!

Xylephone, Xenophobia, Xena Warrior Princess, where should we start? You won’t need your Xerox machine. Did you know there are 15 letter words that start with the letter “X”? Me neither. So, how can you be an ally by knowing about the letter “X?” Thanks for asking, let’s Xplore!

If you haven’t yet heard about pronouns, now you will. This is where you become a better LGBTQ+ Ally and shift from a small “a” ally to a capital “A” Ally. Here are some pronouns that start with the letter “X”. https://stayhipp.com/glossary/what-do-xir-xem-xeir-mean/ Read more at this link.

Xe, Xir, Xem, XeirXe and its variations are gender neutral pronouns that can be used to refer to people who are non-binary, genderfluid, genderqueer, trans, and/or don’t identify with the gender binary. Guess what? There are also pronouns that start with the letter “Z,” but you’ll have to wait for that information.

If you’re not sure what to say to someone with these pronouns, please click on this link from UW-Milwaukee to help you. I also have this information in my email signature for your inclusionary information.

“Y” not stay tuned to find out how the last two letters round out our A-Z LGBTQ+ Resource List. Xena Warrior Princess would be Xtra Proud of you, Zo would I…Ok, I’ll stop…or will I?

Thanks for reading this and for being an ALLY!
