    Speaking earnestly about the role of gender in concerning her personal identity, Bella Ramsey told New York Times that “I guess my gender has always been very fluid. Someone would call me ‘she’ or ‘her’ and I wouldn’t think about it. But I knew that if someone called me ‘he,’ it was a bit exciting.”

    By being gender fluid, Ramsey doesn’t have to subscribe to being either male or female. Clearly, Bella doesn’t consider the matter of pronouns if she gets to be herself.

    Ramsey said she would check “nonbinary” if it’s an option on a form. “I’m very much just a person,” she added. “Being gendered isn’t something that I particularly like, but in terms of pronouns, I really couldn’t care less.” She is also thankful for her inclusion in the non-gender-specific category for ‘Catherine Called Birdy.’

    According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, being non-binary refers to identifying exclusively as male or female or not identifying with any gender. What and how a person chooses to recognize itself doesn’t come under rigid labels under this term.
