The use of she/her pronouns by cis gay men - words like "girl" or “ honey” - is an increasingly visible trend, not to mention calling one another by traditionally female names. Leni and Brendy discuss the practice of switching gender pronouns as a way of embracing femininity and creating a shared culture around names like Mary, Nancy and Nellie, to name only a few.
