Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Gender

Okay! One more question before we share our anonymous questions and the amazing answers @Dani FC wrote (seriously can't wait to show you!)

 

What can you do to support someone else who might be questioning their gender or transitioning?

Good qu @Ben-RO - I agree with @Rainbow Lane and also having name and pronoun stickers in some group situations can be helpful Smiley Happy

What can you do to support someone else who might be questioning their gender or transitioning? Offer your support and affirmation. Use the correct pronouns and name and apologise when/if you slip up. Be informed and read up on ways you can be an ally and knowledgeable about the needs of trans people.  http://everydayfeminism.com/2013/01/trans-etiquette-101/ and the rest of the resources that I"ll post at the end /below are good places to start.

Keen to hear other answers on this one but I guess being respectful of their choices, not arguing against how they feel or see themselves, and respecting pronouns if they change them. Also trying to improve your own knowledge about gender, and realising that not everyone experiences it the same way or has the same ideas about transitioning, or is comfortable discussing it in the same way.
