Deck Out Your Bags and Battle Jackets With Pronoun Patches and Pins
This post is also available in: Українська
Pronouns are a key part of language, and for some queer people — especially nonbinary and trans people — having their pronouns respected and used is a key part of living comfortably. But it’s not just trans people who share their pronouns; cisgender people are also sharing their pronouns and thereby destigmatizing the practice of sharing them. One easy way to share your pronouns is by wearing them in a fairly subtle way, like with pronoun patches and pronoun pins you can put on your jacket, bag or even a work lanyard.
To make things easy, we put together a list of eight of our favorite pronoun patches and pronoun pins for you to check out.
1. Custom Horror Pronoun Iron-On Patch
A personal favorite, these horror-inspired pronoun patches from Ghostscratches are perfect for anyone who loves a spooky aesthetic. They come in a variety of colors, and you can also get custom pronouns. Ghostscratches also has other horror-inspired pronoun patches in their Etsy shop.
Find these custom patches ($13) in the Ghostscratches Etsy Shop.
2. Original Pronoun Planchette Pin
Keeping in line with that spooky aesthetic, one great option for pronoun pins are these planchettes. We’ve seen a lot of mystical symbols gaining popularity, and the planchette being turned into a pronoun pin is a cool way of sharing your pronouns.
