That’s what the importance of an awareness of pronouns is all about – we can’t know someone’s pronouns for sure unless we ask, and declaring our own during introductions is a great way to start the conversation. We don't present any of these as perfect resources beyond critique, but as resources that you might find useful in your context that perhaps you can borrow from or build from.
