Stop telling cis people to question their genders.

Stop telling cis people to “become trans” for a little while to “see if they like it”. Do you know how stressful and scary it is for a lot of people when they are unsure of who and what they are?

If a cis person DECIDES ON THEIR OWN that they want to experiment with presentation / pronouns / whatever to see if anything else other than the “cis” label fits them better, that’s fine.

But STOP BEGGING CIS PEOPLE TO BECOME TRANS FOR THE SAKE OF IT.
