Skip to comments.Kilpatrick Is Latest Firm to Offer Preferred Pronouns for Lawyer Bios
Posted on 08/09/2019 11:27:00 AM PDT by Cecily
Lawyers and staff at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton can now use their preferred pronouns on their email signatures and online biographies.
Kilpatrick announced the new initiative via a firmwide email last week, making it one of a handful of large firms nationally to encourage its people to add the gender pronoun that they use, such as he/him/his, she/her/hers, or they/them/theirs, to their communications.
Automatic assumptions about gender pronouns are an unwelcome life challenge for some, the firms email said, and making ones preferred pronouns known is a way for Kilpatrick to create a more inclusive environment and build a culture where we do not make assumptions or pass judgment on each other.
Partner Yendelela Neely Holston, Kilpatricks first-ever diversity and inclusion officer, said one of the firms LGBTQ lawyers suggested the pronoun option to her earlier in the year.

Democrats are evil.
The end to this insanity, will be insanity. When we reach the point of zero standards and absolute chaos, then people will reject it. Right now the average American thinks - these freaks are bizarre, but it doesn't affect me, so I'll ignore it.
I never said that before and I’ve been following the site for 19 years and posting for a number of years.
We have NO control in the msm, in the schools, in Hollywood.
An actor has to apologize for saying a 3 year old shouldn’t be allowed to decide what gender they want to be
It may take a while longer to realize it’s over.
But it’s over.
All their clients need to say, “ You people are too stupid to represent me!”
it will end if that happens!
Not just Joe Biden who’s not playing with a full deck.
you mean they can sign “ Attorney Faggot”?
Reprobate minds. Sodom’s seal is on the way. You have a very short time to repent. God doesn’t need consulting or popular opinion.
Just use “It” as a pronoun and you cover them all..”shims”...”Shers” and “Shits” would work too..
Only a fellow insane client would want to receive emails from a lawyer who is clearly a man but identifies himself as she/her, or from any lawyer who identifies as they/their.
The progressives are going to get us involved in some major world conflict if they come to power, existential threat type stuff, and we will forget about all this nonsense as we return to traditional values to survive.
Thats my theory. Buster_Tex, He/Him
God's opinion doesn't need to be popular...and is rarely consulted.
Just an addition to operation Charlie Foxtrot
Agreed. I might turn around and leave their office, if I learned my attorneys were so transfixed about this nonsense. I would wonder about their legal abilities, reasoning abilities, ability to cut thru crap and represent the client properly.
I wish there was another way without an all out war!
If they’re confused about basic physical reality! How can they trusted on anything else?
I speak English. Don’t attempt to change the way I speak. A language has pronouns and words for entire classes of people. It does not have an individual word for each individual. If that’s what you want, you use a “Name.”
I heard on Rush people introducing themselves by name follwed up by their preferred pronouns.
“Hi, I’m John Smith, he/him.” All said very casually as if it were perfectly normal. Coming to your town soon!
Do they honestly believe ordinary, clear thinking people would use a Law Firm where the Lawyers can’t figure out if they are Male or Female???
