a lot of cishet people have trouble with being respectful to trans people (which is fine as long as its not on purpose) so here

1. always use the correct pronouns and name, and quickly correct yourself and move on if you mess up

trans people may have a lot of insecurity in their identity so using the name and pronouns they prefer can be very affirming. if you screw up, correct yourself and move on. do not make the other person feel guilty.

2. dont say /youll always be (deadname or birth gender) to me/

this is very harmful. this makes the person feel invalid. stay away from statements similar to this one.

3. dont tell them theres no such thing

we exist.

4. dont force them into stereotypes

stereotypes can make trans people feel very uncomfortable and insecure in their identity.

5. dont treat them differently

this is a no-brainer. trans people are still people.

thats all for now, you may add in the comments if youd like. bye <3

its the name you were given at birth or a name you went by previously. my deadname on skindex is nora. it is extremely rude to refer to me as nora because i chose the name sam and the name nora is no longer in use.
no u good lol

hm.

first of all, your preferred pronouns and name are something you have the right to use. if someone screws up, please correct them. its the only way they can learn. i promise they wont be mad or anything.

for some people, using new pronouns can take adjusting. if someone is repeatedly forgetting, i suggest having a talk with them and giving them methods to better remember. also, tell them how important it is to you that they remember.

i hope this helps <3 stay safe!
Thank you! <3 Stay safe too!
Cool

So I'm sort of afraid to use Torri now and interrupt people to correct them because I'm shy. I also have to constantly tell the save few people to use They them pronouns. does anyone have advice?
