By The Blaze. The U.S. State Department is facing significant social media backlash Wednesday after posting a tweet pertaining to pronouns.
“Today on International Pronouns Day, we share why many people list pronouns on their email and social media profiles,” the department tweeted, inviting people to read a piece posted several months ago on the State Department’s ShareAmerica website.
“Many Americans are including their pronouns on social media profiles or name tags or as part of email signatures. They state them in meetings, whether online or in person, and at other venues,” the piece notes.

The tweet, which was posted at noon on Wednesday, has already garnered significant attention, racking up thousands of responses and retweets, while only receiving hundreds of likes as of Wednesday evening.
