Gender-Neutral Pronouns

Gender-neutral pronouns, aka inclusive pronouns, are used to avoid sorting individuals into the binary world of male vs female. Gender-neutral language is evolving and not considered standard, but it is becoming more common, especially on the internet, so it's important to be able to recognize the most common terms.
