In a move being blasted by critics as egregious “pandering,” three Democrat presidential candidates have added preferred pronouns to their social media bios: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), former Obama administration official Julian Castro, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
On Twitter, Warren’s bio now reads (emphasis added): “U.S. Senator, former teacher, and candidate for president. Wife, mom…grandmother, and Okie. She/hers. Official campaign account.”
Castro added the pronouns “He/Him/Él” to his Twitter bio.
Castro made headlines last month when he asked a “nonbinary” activist what their preferred pronouns were at an event for the nation’s leading provider of abortion, Planned Parenthood.
“At Planned Parenthood event: a non-binary activist just asked Castro how he’ll expand sexual & reproductive health for trans people. Castro responds by first asking which pronoun the activist prefers. They replied, ‘I actually don’t use any pronoun,’ which received some applause,” reported New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi.
Pushing deeper into the radical gender agenda, Castro said at a Democrat presidential primary debate that transgender women, who are biological men, can get pregnant and need abortion access.
“Let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose,” the Democratic presidential candidate said.
A pandering expert, Mayor de Blasio, also added pronouns to his Twitter bio: “He/him.”
“On the surface, it’s just two words. But the inclusion of ‘she/hers’ on a frontrunner candidate’s social media profile is no small feat in the eyes of LGBTQ advocates,” NBC News gushed of Warren’s pronoun addition. “Among the LGBTQ community and its allies, including pronouns in social media profiles has become increasingly common practice in order to avoid misgendering and to indicate solidarity with transgender and nonbinary people.”
“Elizabeth is committed to running an inclusive campaign, and wants every person to know that they are welcome in this movement,” Warren campaign spokesperson Alexis Krieg told NBC News in a statement.
