If you want to make it simpler for people to address you by your chosen pronouns, Instagram is working on making this easier. The platform has just introduced a dedicated field that lets you add the pronouns of your choice.

Instagram has announced the new feature on Twitter, sharing relatively vague information about it. “The new field is available in a few countries, with plans for more,” the tweet reads. Which countries have it now? Will it go global? When will it expand to other countries? There are no answers to those questions for now.

Interestingly enough, comments under the announcement don’t really mention the new feature a lot. Most of the people are furious with Instagram for disabling their account, so they expressed it in their tweets. Those who did comment on the announcement mainly complain that there are more pronoun options that should be included.

Judging from the post by The Verge, the feature is already available to some users in the US. In case you are not finding the pronouns you like, you can submit new options that will be added to your profile. And if you don’t have the feature at all, well, you can always write your pronouns in the bio.

    Sort of… only works in the app and only for one account. Bio is the most universally seen option.

      Gareth Wild gender pronouns have nothing to do with DIY photography. Actually Instagram has nothing to do with DIY photography. SO, check again…

    What does this have to do with photography? And, there are 2 genders. If you’re male, you’re ‘he’ and if you’re female then you’re ‘she’. it’s called biology.
