i’m about to send an e-mail explaining my pronouns/gender to my new job who’s been misgendering me cuz i didn’t get a chance to talk to them in person about it ahhh i’m scared is this a bad idea!?!
I use he/him pronouns which I suppose is easier to understand for some ppl than others that are outside of mainstream use but pretty much everyone still reads me as a masculine woman and uses ‘she/her’
I didn’t want to deal w the frustrations/awkwardness of ppl learning my new pronouns but I also don’t want to be called ‘she’ & ‘lady’ constantly & I was gonna talk about it in person w HR but I didn’t get a chance alone cuz it’s all just been business & paperwork
Training starts on monday & some ppl there have known me my whole life cuz my parents met at that office so that will be especially hard to face/change
I figured an e-mail would open up the discussion & maybe we can meet again to talk later cuz idk how familiar they are w trans employees/ppl there - I just told them what I use & offered ‘they/them’ or anything gender neutral as options for those w a bigger learning curve haha
At least the fact that I took my dad’s first name as my middle name might be some indicator of my gender relationship to him lol HELLO TAKE THE HINT!
