how to talk to a transperson

Is it okay to call someone a transvestite? How do you determine a transgender person's preferred pronoun — he or she — without being offensive?

Read all about it here.


  1. It's a fascinating article to read seeing how we sometimes experience a problem hof how to be called by other's. The best thing would be for other's in general to respect our privacy, and not to bother us with too many questions about the past. For instance formyself I would love always to be called as "she" because this is my wishes to dress and behave as a woman.

  2. Devorah --- I also prefer "she" and I think that when anyone purposely uses "he," they are being hurtful.
