Hi, I’m the father of a young TG person. I’ve always believed I’m very open and honest about TG issues my child has had. Apologies in advance if this question in some way disappoints or upsets anyone reading this but I’m looking for advice.
In discussion with my child about neopronouns, they said they’d be okay with having the pronoun ‘it’ but im 100% against that and said how uncomfortable I would be with referring to any human as ‘it’. I see it as derogatory and dehumanising and would refuse to call any person ‘it’.
They were upset with this and now I feel terrible. I don’t feel supportive at all and I’m worried they won’t come to me to talk anymore.
My question is simply this; what can I do now? I want to be supportive but I’m really not okay with this. Am I a bad person for not wanting to use a preferred pronoun?
sorry for my waffle
