This is such an important thing to say, though.
A lot of people are acknowledging this as a very powerful sound bite, but take a minute to really consider the context of this.
Every time you misgender a trans person, you are putting their lives in danger.
You aren’t just hurting our feelings - and there is nothing “just” about hurt feelings for people prone to suicide - you risk outing us to people we may not want to be outed to.
It opens us up to harassment, discrimination, and even assault. We could lose our jobs, our families, and our livelihood.
Every time you intentionally misgender a trans person, you tell us that you consider us to be less than animals.
