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

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.”

Amandla Stenberg Didn't Feel Represented On-Screen Growing Up

Amandla Stenberg Didn't Feel Represented On-Screen Growing Up

Amandla Stenberg is so excited about their role in Everything, Everything (watch the trailer here) — and not just because it’s an amazing career opportunity.

Per Amandla‘s recent interview, we are using gender-nonspecific pronouns going forward.

In a new interview, Amandla opens up about their childhood, and how hard it was watching movies and TV without seeing black representation in the characters.

“Growing up, I didn’t receive the representation that I wanted so badly,” they told MTV in an interview. “I was always looking out for black characters – black women – that were specifically just about existing and weren’t necessarily racialized or based on plotlines that were centered around race.”

They make such a good point — a ton of the movies that do feature people of color are often about racial struggles and inequality, instead of lighter topics.

“When you’re 12 years old, you just want to see yourself as a teenage girl or you want to see characters who you can look up to that are just existing,” Amandla, who’s career launched when they starred as Rue in the Hunger Games, continued. “I felt like I never really got to receive that.”

That lack of representation is part of what interested them in Everything, Everything: the director wanted to make something “fresher…newer…blacker” for teens. “It’s hard to find black roles that are just whimsical and colorful and fun.” Amandla and co-star Nick Robinson are also excited to represent an interracial couple on-screen.

Amandla feels lucky to be a part of the new film, and this is definitely part of the reason why — to inspire others.

It’s really no surprise how much chemistry Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson have on screen.

After speaking with them about their new film Everything, Everything – which we loved – it’s clear they have that natural connection that plays perfectly to a couple falling in love.

We caught up with Amandla and Nick to talk about making the film, what their auditions were like, their thoughts on texting culture, and more. Check it:

And be sure to check out Everything, Everything now in theaters!

JJJ: First, tell us about your auditions! Anything you remember from your chemistry read together?

Amandla: We didn’t have a chemistry read. We just showed up to set and it was all guns blazing (laughs). I had an audition while I was actually in Paris. I went on a trip after I graduated high school to kind of see the world a little bit. And that’s when I received the script. So it was a frantic situation to figure out how I could do the audition while I was in Paris. I ended up going to this casting agency down some beautiful Parisian street. Yeah, that was it for me. I read with Stella [Meghie], the director, over Skype. I heard she had me in mind for the role, so it all worked out perfectly. And then yeah, I didn’t meet Nick until we grabbed a coffee together in L.A.

Nick: That was one or two weeks before we left [to go film]. That was great. I knew right away and it was a sigh of relief that we were on the same page. And it was funny too, because I happened to be in Europe in the same time as Amandla. We didn’t know.

Amandla: We were there for the same purpose too. The first thing we said to each other was, “Yeah, I just came back from Europe where I was trying to find myself.”

Nick: That’s not what I said! I think I said…I was doing the same thing Amandla was except I hadn’t just graduated high school. I had never done a Euro trip.

Amandla: We were there to be beautiful humans exploring…so realizing we both had come from doing that, we must have a lot in common.
