We have an unprecedented amount of gender confusion in this country. God created people as men or as women. I feel for the people who are confused and torn up inside, but gender is at the level of the soul.
I wish stuff like this would happen to me when I get misgendered. Sadly, most of my friends won't use my pronouns (they forget and I'm too nervous to correct them.) Only two people (my best friend and my ex-girlfriend who I'm still good friends with) actually use my chosen name and pronouns. I love those two to death.
