What does it mean when someone has written in her social media bio; SHE/HER

If you have written so, please let us know why. Thank you

It can be hurtful when we refer to members of the LGBTQ community with pronouns they do not identify with. So they are encouraged to put in the bio pronouns they'd like to used when referring to them. To help them become comfortable in sharing their pronouns in their bio, other people, who may not belong to the group also do the same. So when she's put SHE/HER in her social media bio, she's trying to foster an inclusive social media environment where members of LGBTQ community can freely express who they are and others can refer to them using pronouns they (LGBTQ members) identify with. I hope this helps.
