Being Inclusive In Ones Language

I think inclusive language is important these days. However that seems to be a moving target of what people want to be called. Pronouns are important but it seems like that rule changes frequently. Doing the right thing by people can be very hard. No one wants to be offended but eventually it will happen.

Perhaps grace and information can help people be more considerate, more kind to one another. If one is offended by what someone calls them in an attempt to reach out then perhaps some kindness and understanding that someone cares to try to meet where they are. What this is really is treating people as you would want to be treated or something like that. Names and titles are things that are important to people so I want them to be important to me.

Personally I don’t wanna get anything wrong. As a people pleaser I really want to do right by people because I think it’s the right thing to do.
