Nonbinary: Sam Smith wants gender-neutral pronouns


TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates

London (AP) - The British musician and Oscar winner Sam Smith no longer wants to be called a male pronoun. Instead of "he" (he) should be used for him in English "they" or "them", as the 27-year-old told on Instagram.

The English equivalent to the German plural "she" can also be used as a gender-neutral singular. Smith ("Writing's on the Wall") had turned out to be nonbinary a few months ago; So the musician feels neither exclusively male nor female.

"Having been at odds with my gender identity for a lifetime, I have chosen to accept myself as I am, inside and out." Smith described himself as privileged to be surrounded by people who supported this decision , Nevertheless, the musician stated that he was nervous about the announcement. "I'm too worried about what people think," Smith says. "I hope you can see me the way I see myself."
