    Everday Grammar
    Pronouns & Genders
    I went through the above grammar video, as I understand that grammar that grammar is always changing these days. There have been changes in pronouns usage in English language over the time.
    For example, the use of gender-neutral pronouns have become more common. In recent years gender neutral pronouns are used to refer to people who do not identify as male or female. These days a lot of publications are using, they/their/them as a singular pronoun. So, it’s OK to say, everyone has their opinion.

    * Pronouns & Genders
    A pronoun is a word that refers to either the people talking (“I” or “you”) or someone or something that is being talked about (like “she”, “it”, “them”, and “this”). Gender pronouns (he/she/they/ze etc.) specifically refer to the person you are referring to.
    * Gender Identity: One’s internal sense of being male, female, neither, both, or another gender. Everyone has a gender identity. For transgender and gender non-conforming people, their sex assigned at birth, or natal sex, and their internal sense of gender identity are not the same.
    Pronoun examples in the following sentences are in bold for easy identification.
    Ex: Billy, Caren, and I were playing poker with friends -> We were playing poker with friends.
    Ex: Ellie loves watching movies. -> She loves watching movies, especially if they are comedies.
    Ex: Will Daniel be going to the circus with Sarah? -> Will he be going there with her?
    Thank you.
