NSPC is committed to equality, and gender is one protected characteristic. Gender choice is made by the person themselves, and not ascribed by others. One implication is that a person may request that others refer to them by a gendered pronoun like 'he' or 'she' even though others may, in their judgement, consider that this pronoun is inapplicable. The appropriate pronoun is not for others to determine however, but for the person themselves. They may also choose a neutral pronoun like 'they'. Please make sure that your students are aware of these issues[more]
