General tips and tricks


Common experiences

Misgendering - when someone uses the wrong pronouns or grammatical gender when referring to you or speaking to you. The latter being much more common in languages like Czech where every verb has a grammatical gender. Thankfully this is a result of a mistake most of the time and the vast majority of your interactions will be you gently correcting the person and them respecting it afterwards. Unfortunately it can also be done on purpose, either out of hate or simply ignorance.

Deadnaming - when someone calls you by your old name. Again this is accidental most of the time, for example when your legal name doesn't match the name you are currently using.
