Eight years ago in 2015, Harvard University caused a stir by allowing applicants to choose gender-neutral alternatives like "ze," "e," and "they" on registration forms.  The University of Vermont became the first university to permit students to choose their names and pronouns, a year before Harvard University did so. Being able to express oneself beyond genders has silently become a popular mode of expression amongst the youth. The trend has even found acceptance in the professional world, where workers are proudly flaunting their pronouns on linkedin. 

There are various pronouns like he/him, she/her, Ze/Hir, Xe/Xem, She/they and He/they and They/them. Among all, 'They/them' pronoun is considered as a gender neutral pronoun used by those who don't want to be associated with male or females.
