One day a few months ago I was filling a worksheet for my coop placement, working at Jer’s vision I learned that people like to use they as their pronouns. Reading this sheet I noticed that the pronouns they was not used on this sheet and I started thinking to myself what if I was a person who use they as a pronoun I would feel really excluded in this group of people. I notified my teacher of this because I honestly thought she should know about the people who use this pronoun and that it should be modified. Through this experience at Jer’s Vision I learned not to not assume their Gender and Still trying very hard to not misgender anyone even though I am still working on it I mean I’m not perfect just aware.
