I think it’s really weird how a lot of people assume trans folks like myself say things like “did you just assume my gender?!” unironically. Like yeah I hate being misgendered but you know what I hate more? Being assaulted after correcting a stranger on my identity. If someone I don’t know is gonna call me “ma’am” or whatever because I look like a girl, chances are I won’t correct them. It sucks, but at least I know I won’t get murdered lmao.
One day we’ll get to a time and place where we don’t have to worry about this. Stay strong, trans family. We’ll get there eventually.
