Khloé Kardashian got a powerful lesson in pronoun usage from Asia Kate Dillon.
Apparently she and Tristan Thompson are huge fans of “Billions.” She tweeted to Asia – who plays Taylor Mason the show – “Ughhhh I was so caught off guard by Taylor’s move! Now I’m on [freaking] pins and needles for season 4! Miss Asia, you don’t disappoint.”
Asia identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them. Instead of getting mad at Khloé, the actress turned the situation into a teachable moment. “I love love love that you’re so into the show! And, as a non-binary person myself (like Taylor) I use, ‘Mx.’ (instead of ‘Miss’, ‘Ms.’ or ‘Mr.’ As my prefix.) As in, Mx. Asia or Mx. Dillon. Say word?”
Khloé’s response was perfect. “Oh my goodness! My sincerest apologies! Thank you for telling me Mx. Asia! Ok now. I guess I’ll just be waiting by my TV until season 4.”
- ONE MORE THING! Asia kept the dialogue going and answered questions from fans. One person asked how to pronounce Mx. For the record, it’s “mix.” Another person thanked her for “having the grace and patience needed to listen and educate us all on the unknown with love.”
