misgendering, mama bear Show more
Nurse called me today to tell me kiddo was sick and needed to be picked up from school.
She was using the wrong pronouns, so I tried modeling the correct ones, hoping she'd catch on, but she didn't.
Without really thinking I interrupted her: "I'm sorry, we're using he/him pronouns for [kiddo]." Nurse was like "oh, uh, ok."
Don't misgender my kid! This is the first time I've stood up like that, but it felt awesome.
