The addition of multiple pronoun options are great, but the phrasing of them should be changed because it's currently misleading. The current "_ or _" phrasing suggests that people can choose which pronoun to refer to someone as, when for many people BOTH are preferred and should be used interchangeably. As someone that uses multiple pronouns (specifically she/they), the "or" phrasing makes it sound as if it's an either/or option when I actually prefer being referred to as both. The "or" also makes these pronoun options stand out, since the "he/him", "she/her", "they/them" options don't use this "or". Changing the phrasing to a slash would not alienate people with multiple pronouns as much and would also not mislead people to think it's an either/or option. People that use multiple pronouns don't state it as "_ or _", so it shouldn't be phrased this way on Canvas either.
