Associated Press: Don’t Say ‘Thar She Blows’

August 22, 2022

The Associated Press Twitter account posted part of the news organization’s style guide on Monday, informing readers that when the AP makes references to “nations, ships, storms, or voice assistants,” it uses the pronoun “it” as opposed to “she.”

The full tweet reads:

“Our style:  Don’t use the pronoun ‘she’ in reference to nations, ships, storms, or voice assistants except in direct quotations. Use ‘it’ instead.”
