Pronouns are optional, so there's no need to get them all.

If it's easier to do a group update, we can start collecting a list, wait a week, and then do the change.

Some people use other preferred pronouns.

Here are some examples of other preferred pronouns:

There are no standard icons for pronouns. The male and female symbols ♂ and ♀ are used in medicine. (Using them would be confusing and problematic.) There is no standard symbol for "they".

It really is best if we spell it out:
* they/them/their
* she/her
* he/him/his
* e/em/eir

If that's too long, we could show the common form ("they"), with a tooltip for the other inflections ("they/them/their").
