The key to not misgendering strangers is to stop gendering strangers.
Are you serious? This is practically unavoidable in natural conversation. A pronoun is a pronoun. It’s not like I’m calling you “it”, I’m still acknowledging you as a person and I’m sorry if I fuck up genders on strangers but that’s how our language works and I’m not gonna constantly filter my mouth tiptoe-ing walking on eggshells around strangers. I know it’s a lot more than “just a pronoun” to the trans community but we’re all trying as hard as we can to gender others correctly. And if I misgender you and you inform me I will promptly stop. Look! You opened up to me and we are no longer strangers and now maybe we can be friends?????? Just really getting sick of people all offended over the littlest things. This post is actually just really ignorant about how language and the world works, sorry. You’ll never reach this expectation.
