I learned about ey, eir, and em from the "Spivak" gender on LambdaMOO.

Last time I was there, the genders included Male (he/his), Female (she/hers),
Neuter (it/its), Spivak (ey/eirs), Egotistical (I/mine), Second-Person
(you/yours), Plural (they/theirs), Royal (we/ours), and I think I left out one.

I don't recall whether I actually spent any time as a Spivak, but it was nice
to know the option was there.
