  • Wrong!

    To all transgenders here, what do you do or say when people used the wrong pronoun on you? Personally, I find it offensive.

  • #2
    I always tell remind them to refer to me as a woman because that is what I am now.

      But do you see that as an insult to you? I mean, using the wrong pronouns.

      StrangeNewsAncient Yeah, it's still insulting but I always try to compose myself.

    Slightly offended, I don't usually take it personally to them.

      Same here. But sometimes I'm trying to correct them.

    Can you tell me more about the right use of pronouns for you guys so that I will not offend anybody here?

    I find it really offensive when someone asks me my real name.

      Do you still use your real / dead name?

  • #6
    I really don't mind if they got it wrong accidentally. I just correct them, as for the ones who get it wrong intentionally, it would just be better to ignore them since I don't want to waste my time with those kind of people

      FrogAddiction yeah, because there is no use arguing with close-minded people.

      I think that you already know what she's talking about here so you don't need to ask her that question

    I have friends who were transgenders and learned the right way how to treat them.

      JaneDough Always be considerate and never ever call them by their old name.

      Why not the both of you go online and do some research? Are you expecting that you would be spoon fed here?

  • #10
    In general I try to correct them as much as possible. But if I feel that the person is the type who has a conservative background I would just try and understand that he or she would never use the correct pronoun on me

      So you feel that it would be just a waste of time if you would keep on correcting the person

  • #11
    I will politely tell them that they used the wrong pronoun on me and will try to correct them.

      What are you going to do if they continued using the wrong pronoun?

      That only means one thing, they are doing it on purpose to insult me.

  • #12
    When talking with transgender, I always make sure to use the correct and proper pronouns because I know that using the wrong pronouns will somehow hurt them.

      Same goes with me, because I know that using the correct pronouns to trans people are big deal to them.

  • #13
    Don't take it personally if they used the wrong pronouns on you, I think some of them don't actually mean it.

      But what if they mean it? On the part of the transgender, that is a serious offense.

  • #14
    I think it's time for the society to be educated on these kinds of things (LGBTQ, using proper pronouns to trans), other people might find it a no big deal, but for them, it is.
