    Misgendering, A Real Hurt A topic arose on

    Twitter today regarding misgendering. For those who aren't sure, misgendering is when someone refers to a trans person in their former gender. Thankfully it doesn't happen to me often. It never happens in the street or when I'm socializing. It does happen now and again though...

    I think the group name says it all,

    not sure any further explanation is needed. I am who I am, and there is no need to apologize for that, or rationalize that. I'm not confused about who or what I am, I'm not ashamed, and I'm not conflicted. I just go about my life and expect everyone else to do the same.
