Study: Jobseekers who put NONBINARY gender pronouns on their resumes LESS LIKELY to be hired
06/05/2023 // Laura Harris // Views

A new study has revealed that job-seekers that put nonbinary genders pronouns in their resumes are less likely to be hired.

The study conducted by involved hundreds of individuals who identify as non-binary being surveyed about their employment prospects. The site found that over 80 percent of them believed that being identified as nonbinary would negatively affect their job search.

A separate experiment involving the submission of two resumes to 180 job postings was also conducted. The resumes turned in were almost identical, save for one with "they/them" pronouns. The resume with non-binary pronouns received less attention and fewer interview invitations than those without. It is worth noting that even companies who pride themselves as equal opportunity employers also discriminated against resumes with "they/them" pronouns on it. also talked to hiring managers themselves to shed light on this practice. The site found that these managers were also less inclined to contact applicants whose resumes included nonbinary pronouns. Several of the hiring managers expressed their sentiments over the presence of "they/them" pronouns on job seekers' resumes.

One hiring manager in the hotel and food services industry remarked: "I would first take off the 'they/them' pronoun reference. I find that personal pronouns are quite silly in a job situation. This is better reserved for social settings and not in a job setting."

Another hiring manager remarked that the nonbinary pronouns are "a little over the top." A third manager, meanwhile, gave straightforward advice: "The pronouns are off-putting and unnecessary. Get rid of the pronoun nonsense. You're either a 'he' or a 'she.'"


"As major layoffs sweep through the U.S. workforce, these timely data show that non-binary individuals may have a more difficult time finding new jobs," noted.

Nonbinary applicants could bring politics into workplace

Writing for the New American, Selwyn Duke put in his two cents on the study's findings.

"It's not just that thinking you can have your very own pronouns is a bit self-centered. It's also that … using 'non-binary pronouns' on job applications reduces your chances of being hired," he wrote.

Duke also noted that the survey espouses the belief that discriminating against non-binary applicants in the job market "is wrong and must be rooted out." He argued, however, that this is not exactly true.

"While discrimination often has a negative connotation, the process merely refers to choosing one or more from between/among two or more. Thus, since businesses never take on everyone seeking employment, the hiring process is by definition one of discrimination. It's just a matter [of] how you discriminate."

According to Duke, business owners are naturally concerned about applicants showing their non-binary status as "their pronoun statements may signal a desire to bring politics into the workplace." He continued: "Their pronoun usage reflects that they not only have an agenda, but that they want everyone else – including at work – to participate in it."

The conservative writer noted that companies rejecting any "pronoun-professing job applicant" is a sensible move. "Such red flags tell you more than educational credentials because they serve as proxies for deeper passions and qualities – such as a person's worldview, politics and … sense of virtue," he explained. "You can hire the woke, but it will be an eye-opening – and perhaps business-closing – experience."
