* Note that gender-free pronouns and titles do not necessarily imply non-binary gender identities. Although that might be the case for some people, you can think of this new language as something like using the term "fire fighter" as opposed to fireman or firewoman; it's inclusive. You can search for Safe Zone members who use gender-free pronouns or forms of address (titles, such as Mx.) by putting an asterisk in the search box at the top of this page. Although honorific titles such as Dr. and Professor do not convey gender, they have not been starred because their role in conferring status prevents them from serving as gender-free forms of address for the general public. In other words, it's a matter of intersectional inclusion.
