Elizabeth Reis’s excellent piece on pronouns in the NYT

In the essay “Pronoun Privilege,” published in Sunday’s New York Times, fantastic scholar and intersex ally Dr. Elizabeth Reis takes a look at the issues involved, from a professor’s perspective, with making people disclose their preferred pronouns to a group of strangers. Reis — who some of you may remember published the essay, “Divergence or disorder?: the politics of naming intersex” back in 2007, which critiqued the pathologization of intersex people — has been a pioneering, conscientious voice in gender issues, and we thank her for bringing this perspective and approach to the pronoun issue as well. Enjoy.
