Eddie Izzard (comedian/activist/marathon runner) has recently said that she’s more comfortable with she/her pronouns. She was applauded by viewers for requesting the use of ‘she’ and ‘her’ pronouns during a television appearance, confirming that she was ‘gender fluid’.
Taking to Twitter after the programme, fans praised her, shared positive messages of support, and thanked her for being a trailblazer.
It’s an area I need to understand better, and intend to do so as soon as possible. But, whatever our feelings on gender fluidity, at its heart there’s the issue of respect for others.
