Hi Michelle, thanks for sharing! It sounds like your medical team is as affirming as mine have been. I feel like if people knew us well as our old selves, it would be unkind to be confrontational. Of course, if I know someone is intentionally referring to my birth name or pronuons once I’m FT, I’ll simply call them by a random name until they get the hint, or just ignore them until they respect me. No need to get all upset or cause well-meaning people to feel embarrassed or ashamed.
Good on you, GF!
