Ey/em neopronouns is a gender neutral pronoun set which can be used by anyone regardless of gender identity or expression. In 1975, Christine M. Elverson of Skokie, Illinois, won a contest by the Chicago Association of Business Communicators to find replacements for "she and he", "him and her", and "his and hers", she created ey, em, and eir by dropping the "th" from they, them, and their.
