The current age of social media would want you to know these famous slang words to avoid confusion. To begin with, let us understand the meaning of the added pronouns. Here are the Pronouns of TikTok and Instagram explained.
Sex vs. Gender
Sex indicates the physical appearance of your body or your biology.
Gender is an identity of who you are inside (emotionally, psychologically, and socially). It is more about how you feel and how you want to project yourself to others.
If you find an Instagram/TikTok profile that mentions She/Her or He/Him, it describes the user’s preferred gender type. Though there might be multiple standards related to it, in general, the meaning is as it seems.
These pronouns may suggest their gender and not sex. Yes, a person can have different gender and sex. However, the words She/Her indicate how the user wants you to call them while having a conversation. Similarly, He/Him indicates that the user wants him to represent as a male. You may also come across pronouns like They/Them, meaning gender-neutral, and Ze/Hir/Zi is another gender-neutral pronoun and comes from the trans community.
