American singer Jennifer Lopez has received rave reviews from her fans online after she presented one of her children using a gender-neutral pronoun at the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation’s 6th annual Blue Diamond Gala.
In front of a two-part concert, Lopez introduced 14-year-old MK – one of the twin children she gave to her ex-Mark Anthony – using a gender-neutral pronoun – they.
What did JLO say?
Lopez represented Emme Maribel Muñiz using the stars and their neutral pronouns.
Referring to their “most beloved two-part harmony”, JLo said, “The last time we performed together was in such a big arena and I urge them to keep singing with me, and they will not. So this is a very special event. . ” The video was shared by TikTok client christinathesupermom.
According to CNN, when Lopez co-starred in the Super Bowl LIV Pepsi halftime show in 2020, the pair stood out as truly newsworthy to star together.
“They are very, very occupied. They are booked. Also, expensive,” Lopez said. “They cost me when they appeared. However, they are worth every penny because they are my number one two-part harmony partner.”
Emme, at the time, showed up in front of an audience, carrying a rainbow receiver with their mother to sing Christina Perry’s hit song “A Thousand Years.”
What is a gender neutral pronoun?
In an ever-evolving society where the recognition of personality has become a significant part of the social discourse, basic people in general do not realize themselves with the adaptations they had after entering the world.
It is not rare for people to assign themselves no genders at all, or not to be addressed with the gender binaries of he/him/his or she/her/hers. In such cases, gender-neutral pronouns are preferred.
Neutral pronouns, as indicated by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee LGBTQ + Asset Focus, are “broad pronouns that have no adaptation to the person being spoken to.”
In some dialects, such as English, a neutral or third orientation pronoun is not accessible, and is condemned, as in many instances, scholar, speaker, and so on, using “he / she” when referring to a conventional person, an outsider looking inside. Similarly, the polarity of “he and she” in English leaves no room for other adaptive personalities, a source of frustration for transsexual and orientation bizarre networks.
The most commonly used gender neutral pronoun is they / their.
“They/them are widely used among those who do not identify with she/her or he/him pronouns and are becoming increasingly accepted into mainstream culture,” says Iris Gottlieb, author and illustrator of the book Seeing Gender: An Illustrated Guide to Identity and Expression,” as quoted by Cosmopolitan.
Ms / Mrs / Miss has been replaced by Ze / Zir / Zirs (pronounced zee / here / heres), Ey / Em / Eirs (unspoken ay / em / airs), and Mx (pronounced as miks). / Mr.
Regardless of the value of propensity towards people with traditional gender pronouns, it is best to request a pronoun of their choice before inclining towards them. Similarly, it is becoming increasingly common for people to mention pronouns before starting a discussion.
