The men and women of the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly on Thursday night adopted an ordinance that removes gender-specific pronouns and replaces them with grammatically incorrect pronouns in city code.
They’re going to use pronouns they hope won’t offend.
- “He” and “She” is now called a “They.”
- “His” and “Hers” possessive is now to be known as “Their.”
- “Him” and “Her” would now be a “Them.”
The Assembly voted unanimously to make the change to lessen the chance that someone might not feel included because of the use of a binary gender pronoun.
