Having a specific place to display people's pronouns in their Instagram bio will help normalize having someone's pronouns in their bio. Currently, transgender people put their pronouns in their bio to avoid being misgendered by others. When allies add their pronouns to their bio, it helps trans people feel more safe and supported. Trans people are often harassed by transphobes when they have their pronouns in their bio, and adding one's pronouns to their bio that helps destigmatize them. Adding a specific space to do so will only further this; furthermore, many claim that putting their pronouns in their bio ruins their "aesthetic" and therefore this will shut down that argument. 

However, it is important to acknowledge that not all trans people are able to safely be out. Therefore, there should be an option when adding this function to hide their pronouns. Additionally, similar to a "close friends" story, people should be able to only show it to certain people (such as those they are out to). Similar to hiding your story from certain users, people should be able to hide their pronouns from certain people (such as transphobic people around them, their family etc.) 

Please sign this petition in support of Instagram adding a place to display people's pronouns on their page, similar to a bio/website. This will help destigmatize and normalize putting one's pronouns in their bio, help support trans people, and end simply assuming one's pronouns.
