*Trans-EtiquetteOne thing I've really been dying to write about is *trans-etiquette*Trans-Etiquette by =Saphrix
because even the most informed person can make mistakes and offend some transgender individuals. First thing being, if you have a friend that is trans it doesn't necessarily give you the right to run around telling people that they are. A vast majority of transgender people don't like being outed as such unless they themselves decide to do so. Another thing being that just because they are transgender does NOT mean they want to be called a "trans woman/trans man", I personally get offended when referred to as such. Why? Well mainly because although perhaps not intentional and you probably don't realize it you are still outing them from a gender role and giving them a new one as if they are not allowed within your own. So given that it is always safer and far more polite to just say woman or man, remember trans is only a classification they're given.
Continuing on that topic, I don't care how old or who you
