In a move being blasted by critics as egregious “pandering,” three Democrat presidential candidates have added preferred pronouns to their social media bios: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), former Obama administration official Julian Castro, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
On Twitter, Warren’s bio now reads (emphasis added): “U.S. Senator, former teacher, and candidate for president. Wife, mom…grandmother, and Okie. She/hers. Official campaign account.”
Castro added the pronouns “He/Him/Él” to his Twitter bio.
Castro made headlines last month when he asked a “nonbinary” activist what their preferred pronouns were at an event for the nation’s leading provider of abortion, Planned Parenthood.
