At work, everyone uses the wrong pronouns for me. They call me "she" or "girlie" and generally female pronouns instead of they/them/theirs pronouns. I've never known how to approach them about it and correct them. Today, when we were closing the shop, the supervisor used a female gendered word while talking to me. I felt uncomfortable, but she picked up on it :) she asked if I use a different pronoun or gender because apparently she's noticed that I cringe and look angry when people use female gendered pronouns for me. I told her that I use they pronouns and she was totally cool with it :) hopefully this will make me feel more comfortable telling telling the rest of the staff.
Sorry I haven't posted here in a few days, I've missed it here. But I'll always find comfort in posing here x
