You try to play it off but...

Whenever someone uses the wrong pronouns knowing full well I'm trans I try to make it look it like it doesn't bother me. In reality it does.

Not cool.

I'm trans and this guy at school goes out of his way to use the wrong pronouns.

You know who you are, and that's all that matters.

I'm trans, and I don't care what pronouns you use. I have a preference, but it won't affect me if you use the 'wrong' ones. At the end of the day, I'm still me, regardless of he or she.

It's hurtful.

I will tell people I'm trans and they'll say "Oh yeah I knew a guy and he is a woman now and..." They always use the wrong pronouns for other trans people and it makes me sad.

Fear of the unknown sucks.

I'm kinda nervous about starting college. I'm trans FTM pre T and I'm scared people will use the wrong pronouns.


Why are a dog's pronouns more important than mine? My best friend knows I'm trans, but still uses she/her pronouns, yet she apologised profusely after calling my dog the wrong pronouns. Wtf?!?!
