Chelsea Manning, (born Bradley) is another example probably more top of mind for CEtizens.

ETA: Bruce Jenner hasn't come out as trans, and every indication is that he still goes by Bruce...

ETA2: Transgender Dysphoria Blues is a really good album.

Not a reflection on your post. Just the fact that the world is going mad. Witness the NYT inventing new transgender pronouns.

The NYT seems to want to use the individuals preference between the standard male and female sets of pronouns, according to http://publiceditor.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/02/11/the-times-and-transgender-issues-part-one-of-two-on-pronouns/?_r=0

Typical of the Times to write a story about horseshit that they "take seriously".



See, it's ok to refer to us as "cis-people" even though that's not our preferred nomenclature (normal will suffice). But refer to an Other-kin as male or female and you're an oppressor.

okay
let me make this clear, if you are white and you are fictionkin with a nonwhite character you are racist. that is white entitlement. there is no getting around that especially by using the term synpaths, which most white former fictionkins use to placate poc who have been talking about this issue while not changing their behavior whatsoever (rather, most people agree that the term synpaths should be used for poc who identify with nonwhite characters who aren’t the same ethnicity as them, so to say a japanese person identifying with a indian character, etc, as long as they do not coopt experiences specific to the character)
