Neil Gaiman Comes Out Swinging for They/Them Pronouns

Neil Gaiman tweet

Renowned fantasy author Neil Gaiman has come out swinging for they/them pronouns in response to a hilarious anti-trans “self-own”. The English author is world-renowned for novels including Stardust, American Gods, Coraline and The Graveyard Book and is a steadfast supporter of the trans community. Last year, he joined over 1,800 top literary figures in pledging his support for trans and non-binary people.

Gaiman affirmed his allyship on Monday (13 December) by responding to a hilarious screenshot shared by Conservative Self-Owns, a mocking Twitter account that calls out right-wingers who unintentionally embarrass themselves online.

The Twitter account shared a post from a social media user that claimed: “Any English teacher who uses ‘they/them’ as a singular pronoun should lose their license.” The poster highlighted the irony of the original comment by underlining the singular noun, “teacher”, and use of the singular pronoun “their” them.

In a wonderful mic-drop moment, the Good Omens co-author shared the tweet alongside the comment: “That’s beautiful.”
