“Goodbye pronouns? X removes Display Options on User Profiles.”

In a move that has sparked controversy and debate, social media giant X has removed the option for users to display their preferred pronouns on their profiles. The change, which was implemented without warning earlier today, has left many users feeling frustrated and marginalized.


The pronoun display option was introduced by X in 2021 as a way to allow users to express their gender identity and promote inclusivity and respect. The feature was widely praised by the LGBTQ+ community and allies, who saw it as a step forward in creating a more welcoming and accepting online environment.

Reasons Behind the Change:

X has yet to release an official statement explaining the reason behind the removal of the pronoun display option. However, sources close to the company suggest that the decision was made in response to concerns about user safety and the potential for misuse.

Reactions and Controversy:

The move has sparked outrage among many users, who see it as a step backward for inclusivity and diversity. Critics argue that the removal of the pronoun display option will make the platform less welcoming and inclusive for gender-nonconforming and non-binary individuals.

“This is a huge setback for the LGBTQ+ community,” said one user. “X was one of the few platforms that allowed us to express our gender identity and feel seen and respected. Now, we’re being erased again.”

What’s Next?

It remains to be seen how X will respond to the backlash and whether they will reconsider their decision. In the meantime, users are taking to social media to express their disappointment and frustration. Users are also using hashtags such as #BringBackPronouns and #InclusivityMatters.
