  1. Anonymous said: Same person who asked the last question; didn't have enough space to add this. Since I've been at Purchase, NOBODY has asked me for my preferred pronouns. Should I have a problem with that? I'm sorry to be this longwinded but I really think avoiding transphobia is as simple as acting the same way to trans people as you would any other human being and just having a basic sense of respect for all people. Am I really wrong to think that?

    this is, like, totally unrelated to events or anything, but transphobia (and any sort of oppression) goes beyond “the golden rule”. claiming respect is one thing, listening and being an advocate when needed is better

  2. Anonymous said: This isn't a complaint, it's an actual question. Are we supposed to ask EVERYONE their preferred pronouns? I mean think about it, you only use pronouns when you're referring to someone in a different conversation, not when you're talking to them. If I'm referring to someone and I get corrected about their preferred pronoun, I will gladly make the proper switch. But just meeting someone and asking them mid-conversation, "by the way, what pronouns do you prefer?" seams a little odd.

    just saw this now, sry.

    use proper judgement. the policy does not say explicitly “ask everyone their pronouns”, it simply says to be mindful and to not make assumptions. i understand the awkwardness of asking, though. just be smart about it and as lot as you’re not an indignant asshole when you’re called out on using wrong pronouns (which by yr demeanor here it doesn’t seem like you would), things should be o.k.
