At risk of being that kid who always has his nose in a book, I've been thinking about something for a long time.
Leslie Feinberg, in Trans Liberation, writes this:
Please feel free to refer to me as "he" in this transgender setting, since in doing so, you are honoring my gender expression. Outside the trans communities, many people refer to me as "she," which is also correct. Using that pronoun to describe me challenges generalizations about how "all women" act and express themselves. In a non-trans setting, calling me "he" renders my transgender invisible.Does this resonate with anyone? What do people think?
