Canada’s public broadcaster wants Canadians to know “why pronouns matter.” On Sunday, the official CBC British Columbia Twitter account released a video asking five people to discuss why their gender identity pronouns are important. “I honestly love it when people ask me what pronouns I go by, I feel comfortable, I feel like I’m in a space where, yes, people that look female might not always be female,” Satsi Naziel told the CBC. Gendered pronouns like “they/them” refer to self-identified non-binary or other LGBTQ+ gender identities. The Twitter post was published alongside a reference to a CBC BC podcast released earlier this year titled They & Us. According to an episode list of the show, the program deals with topics such as “Pronouns in a pandemic,” “Riots for your rights” and “Family ties.”
