White House adds pronoun option to contact form

The Biden administration recently updated the White House contact form to include new pronoun options for users.

The drop-down menu includes options, “she/her,” “he/him,” and “they/them.”

Additionally, users can also select “other,” and write in their own selections or indicate they “prefer not to share” their pronouns

The prefixes section was also updates to include the gender-neutral “Mx.” along with “Mr.” “Mrs.” and “Ms.”

LGBTQ+ advocacy group, GLAAD, was first to notice the change and shared a screenshot of the menu on Twitter.

However, White House pronoun options are just the beginning for the Biden administration. The president also signed stack of executive actions on his first day in office. Including an order combating discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community.

According to the order, federal agencies can not discriminate due to sexual orientation or gender identity when implementing existing federal laws that bar discrimination on the basis of sex.

“Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports,” Biden’s order said.

“Adults should be able to earn a living and pursue vocation knowing that they will not be fired, demoted, or mistreated because of whom they go home to or because how they dress does not conform to sex-based stereotypes.”

During his campaign, Biden pledged a series of acts in support of LGBTQ+ people. He even promised signing the Equality Act which would outlaw discrimination against LGBT+ people. All of this during his first 100 days in office.

Hence, organizations like the Human Rights Campaign voiced their support for the swift actions.

For the LGBTQ+ community, this is an example of a new era with a goal of inclusion.
