A chief of police in Britain chose to recognize “international pronouns day” by putting out a video warning people that misgendering transgender people was a form of “abuse.”
“Today is international pronouns day,” said Detective Chief Constable Julie Cooke in a video posted to Twitter. “Which is a day particularly important to people who identify as transgender or gender nonconforming.”
“Being misgendered can have a huge impact on somebody and their personal well being, it also can be used as a form of abuse for somebody and that just isn’t right,” she added.
