""What Should I Call You? Pronouns and the Scene of Address""

Judith Butler, Ph.D.

We are now often asked what our pronouns are and how we want to be referred to. But we also receive statements or declarations or requests regarding how others wish to be referred to. The pronoun has come into relief as a turbulent terrain. Tensions have emerged within families, between generations, and between some feminists and gender activists. How do we think about the various scenes of address within which these discussions take place? What is being asked of whom, and what is the aim of this desire, this demand? What is the responsibility of practitioners to those who raise these issues and make these requests?
