  • i refer to them as the gender they have according to their chromosomes. and i dont care if this hurts people's feelings.

    to say that a man is a woman simply because that man took hormones and "feels" like a woman then that is an insult to real women. and to say that a woman is a man because she took hormones and because she "feels" like a man that is an insult to real men.

  • I will always try to call someone what they'd prefer. Especially if they're a friend. But I have no respect for people like my recent acquaintance who came ouy one day to people saying she is now he. And I didn't know this so next time I saw "him" I referred to him as a her and they yelled at me calling me bigot etc.

    Later found out it'd been two days, still LOOKS female, we'd only met once and nobody had told me...

    Like I'll try and respect you but don't be surprised if to some people you still look your designated gender and they don't know.
    I'm female and want to be called so. I'd be annoyed if you said "it" about me because political correctness says pronouns are offensive now.

  • I will call someone by what they look like usually. I can't always tell. I usually try to avoid pronouns as much as possible in those kinds of situations because it feels weird to call someone a she if I can tell said person is a he. Just tell me the name you use so I can use your name, that's no different than calling someone by a nickname.

    But what is irritating is that I work in the medical field. If your legal name is Christian and you tell me your name is Christina, but you haven't legally changed it, that's going to piss me off because I have to submit your legal name to your insurance company.

  • The gender they want to be called.

    Why is it any of my business to make them feel shitty over a stupid pronoun.

    They identify as a guy ill call them a guy. Its not hard.

    You dont have to understand just respect them.

  • I'm not gonna disrespect someone to their face. I refer to people how they want to be referred to. I know it's not some made up choice, it's biology. And I'm not one to deny science. :P

  • "I'm the kind of person that calls a spade a spade"?

    No, you're the kind of person who doesn't understand the difference between biological sex and gender. "calls a spade a spade" is just another cop out for people too simple to educate themselves or too close minded to care.

  • Onviously refer to what they wanna be called. Even if you don't agree with being transgender it's not ok to disrespect someone
    And for all those people saying with whatever genetalia they have whatever gender they're born with

    You are born with a SEX ie. male female intersex
    You feel GENDER, you identify as gender

      would you call a bus driver a pilot if they ask you to refer to them as such?

    • 1mo

      Probably. I don't care about them enough to look at the specifics

  • Yes , i would refer to them as such in a work place. BUT they aren't that in reality so i wouldn't consider them that. And caitlyn didn't deserve that award.
    but it is insane that you get in trouble now for stating a fact and biology but whatever.

      Imagine if everyone insisted on calling you a guy. How would you like that?

    • 1mo

      @JenSCDC well I wasn't born male so that'd be ridiculous

    • 1mo

      Whether or not it's ridiculous is not the point. It's about trying to put yourself in someone else's shoes to try to understand how they feel.

  • I would refer to them as the gender that they identify as to save face and avoid drama. However, I dont actually view them the same way I would someone who was actually born that gender.

  • What they claim themselves as, I am not an asshole and insensitive. Even though as a human being I would still make mistakes and accidentally call them what they were born as, but they'd have to accept that.

  • If they have not had the operation yet, they are still the gender they were born as, and I will refer to them as such. Once they have undergone the sex change, I will happily refer to them as which ever gender they became.
