Gender Reveal

Apr 2, 2018

In this week’s episode, Tuck speaks with Kirby Conrod (they/them), a PhD candidate in linguistics. Among other subjects, Kirby specifically studies the use of they/them pronouns.  Topics include:

  • Tips for folks who struggle with they/them pronouns.
  • Reasons why those folks might be struggling more than other people.
  • Being a nonbinary person in academia.
  • Coming into a nonbinary identity in Taiwan.
  • What is syntax?!?

Read more about our This Week in Gender topic here and here.

Read Kirby’s Medium post: “How to do the absolute minimum (with pronouns)”.
