Why Amandla Stenberg Has Given Up He/She Pronouns in Today's Society

Amandla Stenberg has been breaking boundaries for as long as we can remember and their latest one is destroying the pronouns we’re so used to using.

In a conversation with Janelle Monae for Teen Vogue’s Icons, Volume III issue, Amandla revealed why they aren’t using he/she pronouns any longer.

“I have felt at times that she/her pronouns weren’t entirely fitting, but I’ve never felt uncomfortable with them,” Amandla says.

Adding, “It’s more important for me to open up that conversation around pronouns and how gender itself is a construct that doesn’t make much sense in our society.”
