So would xe be the replacement for like she/he and xir is the replacement for his/hers? Sorry of this is a rude way to ask, I’m working on being more diverse in my writing and I wasn’t sure.

hey! Sorry for the late reply- i was away and had friends guest modding for me and they couldn’t answer asks

no worries on your phrasing- this is plenty polite and a fairly common question. i dont think a lot of people use neopronouns as extensively as i do

xe/xir/xir = she/her/hers is the easiest way to get used to it, yeah! you’ll aso see ze/zir/zirs and ce/cir/cirs somtimes as well as ey/eir/eirs

Follow-up question: how do you pronounce xe/xir/xirs? I’ve seen them a bunch, but never heard them.

all g my dude this question comes around a lot as well

xe/xir/xirs and ze/zir/zirs are phonetically the same (the ‘x’ version was introduced after the ‘z’ version to further distinguish the pronouns visually from she/her/hers) and it goes

zee/ zer/ zers

ce/cir/cirs i believe would be see/ ser/ sers

ey/eir/eirs is based n they/them pronouns and would be ay/ air/ airs
