￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature.
