Nonbinary pronouns in writing

Non-binary pronouns are essentially any pronoun that isn’t he/him or she/her. Have you ever encountered non-binary pronouns in writing? If you’re a writer, have you ever used them in your own writing?

Some of my Rp characters use they/them as well as neopronouns like xe/xem, ze/zim, ae/aem

I’ve had a few non-binary RP characters, so yeah, I’ve used non-binary pronouns

One time I’ve written a short story without using any gender pronouns at all. That was very interesting. I’ve had non-binary characters in other stories and read quite a few stories including non-binary pronouns. Most of the time I enjoyed it, but sometimes I feel like people add a non-binary character without research which sucks cause it leads to stereotypical and wrong portrayal…

Yes, I have. I want to be respectful of my characters.
