Caitlyn Jenner on the need to ‘chill’ on pronouns ‘Pronouns are an overrated’ topic Caitlyn Jenner addressed her thoughts on pronouns, saying everyone needs to chill.
Jenner pointed out that the pronoun is an exaggerated subject. Jenner came out as trans in 2015 and had gender-affirmation surgery in 2017. Caitlyn Jenner said everyone “needs to chill” about pronouns in response to tech mogul Elon Musk’s recent renewed criticism.
Olympian pointed out that, I think pronouns in general are an overrated and over-covered topic. If I was curious about someone’s pronoun, which I can tell doesn’t happen very often, I’d just ask. We all mess up, including myself unknowingly, she said.
Jenner has been a vocal supporter of Musk, whom she described as “an incredible executive”. Twitter’s new owner has been vocal about his opinions on pronoun use and last month joked about using Prosecute/Fauci as his pronoun when he targeted the former White House chief medical adviser.
Elon Musk said that it is neither nice nor kind to anyone to impose their pronouns on others when they don’t ask, and asking those who don’t ask, to which Jenner replied that she agreed. Is. Jenner, who was previously married to Kris Jenner, came out as trans in 2015 and underwent gender-affirmation surgery in 2017.
The Olympian decathlete had previously been embroiled in a controversy with TikToker and trans activist Dylan Mulvaney after he was accused of misleading Mulvaney by using his pronouns on Twitter. Jenner denied being responsible. A representative for Jenner said at the time that “a person on Ms. Jenner’s team randomly goaded Dylan into tweeting ‘He’s talking about his penis’.”
To this end, we deeply regret the remark and have taken appropriate action internally to rectify the situation. In October, Jenner said on Twitter that she received death threats from the so-called ‘inclusive’ LGBT community after tweeting about Mulvaney and other news topics. Jenner told Insider that people mess with my name and pronouns, and 99.9% of the time it’s not done with malicious intent.
People mess up or get confused and that’s okay, I don’t take it personally or let it affect me. We have to be reasonable about it and not be 100% correct, Jenner said. The topic has moved a bit and pronouns seem to have been blown completely out of proportion, she concluded.
