Its pretty clear that many people have an opinion on any gender or sexuality. And here’s a “how to” with dealing with it.
Step 1. You just do it. They’re a human being with wants and needs and a personality and a heart. What have you got to lose? Probably not as much as they do.
(If step 1 wasn’t enough for you, please read on)
Step 2. Remove head from sphincter, then speak.
Step 3. Stop being a selfish twat and maybe JUST MAYBE remember that this is a human being we’re talking about. They aren’t actually doing anything other than being themselves. (Also refer to step 1 and 2).
Step 4. (This is a real step) If you have trouble with pronouns, you can always practice whilst looking at images of them or in the mirror, practicing conversations and introductions. Remember – they are finally being themselves and they are actually going through a lot more than just remembering pronouns. Be supportive and caring. If you have to think twice about saying something – don’t say it.
When I refer to the “changing my life” in the title of this post. I don’t mean this in a negative way. At all. It’s simply fact they have changed my life – for the better. I’ve never been so protective of people in my life. Not that they need me to fight their battles, they’re perfectly capable.
And an FYI in case you forgot.
You are important.
You make a difference.
Something about me you probably didn’t know:

P.s people don’t have to look or act a particular way to identify to a specific gender or sexuality. You do you. And they will do them. Kthanksbye
