FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a synonym for ze?

Ze is a pronoun that serves the same grammatical function as he or she, except that it’s gender-neutral. Ze is typically used by people who identify as nonbinary or genderqueer, meaning that their gender identify falls outside of the strict binary of only male or only female.

For those who identify in one of these ways and who are deciding which pronouns to use, there are a lot of options.

The most commonly used is nonbinary they. Some pronouns similar to ze include zie, zhe, xe, xie, sie, ve, and ce.

However, it should be noted that these shouldn’t be considered synonyms of ze in the sense that they are interchangeable when referring to the same person—the pronouns the person has specified are the ones that should be used.

Ze is often used as part of the ze/zir/zir set of pronouns, but it is sometimes also used as part of other, similar sets, such as ze/hir/hir and ze/zan/zan.

In the next section, we’ll break down some of the nonbinary pronoun sets that people use.
