With the administration of President Joe Biden now in control of the White House, they now have control over the White House’s website and social media accounts, too. Mere hours after Biden was sworn in, changes are already visible on its website, which now asks individuals their gender pronouns on the contact form.

The pronouns tab on the form, which users are not required to fill in, gives users the option to declare their pronouns as either: “she/her,” “he/him,” “they/them,” “other,” and “prefer not to share.”

GLAAD, an organization that advocates against the derogatory coverage of LGBTQ people in media and entertainment, posted a screenshot of the pronoun options to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

Furthermore, while declaring one’s pronouns isn’t required, a person’s prefix is. Alongside the traditional “Mr.,” “Ms.,” “Mrs.,” and “Dr.,” another option provided under the prefix tab is “Mx.” There are also options for “other (please specify)” and “none.”

Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro poked fun at the Biden administration for the change.

“The administration that values objectively verifiable facts has begun!” he tweeted, sharing GLAAD’s post.

Here is how some other conservatives across Twitter responded to the news:

As the jury selection for former President Donald Trump’s hush-money trial was being finalized, Max Azzarello set himself on fire Friday afternoon outside the Manhattan courthouse. The event was caught on video by multiple media outlets, and police officers can be seen in the videos dousing Azzarello’s body with a fire extinguisher.

National Review reports on the bizarre occurrence:

Azzarello appears to be a conspiracy-minded former Democratic campaign staffer and operations manager who threw pamphlets into the air before self-immolating that directed bystanders to his Substack blog, “The Ponzi Papers.” Azzarello writes on his Substack of a supposed “totalitarian con” and identifies himself as the man who set himself on fire outside of the Trump courthouse.

Azzarello warns of what he believes to be cryptocurrency ponzi scheme being manipulated by economic elites, most notably tech billionaire Peter Thiel. He claims the government is a “secret kleptocracy” full of financial criminals and highlights The Simpsons as a tool supposedly used by elites to brainwash the American people.

His LinkedIn page features a picture of himself with former president Bill Clinton, a subject of his conspiracy theories, and lists his various marketing and operations positions in politics and tech.
