Dear cis people,
When I tell you I’m trans:
Please don’t act like you know more about it than me, trust me the chances are you don’t.
When I tell you my prefered name, thank you for using it, but there’s no need to mention it. Please don’t mention it at all. I am my chosen name and always have been. I don’t need to be told that I don’t look like my birthname.
Please don’t laugh when I do strange things which help my dysphoria.
Although self explanatory, don’t refer to me as a girl or assume my pronouns. If you don’t know, please just ask.
If you have a question, please ask. But make sure you listen to the answer instead of asking and reasking several times.
Your friendly neighborhood trans guy.
