I recently convinced myself that I could and should refer to anyone as "they/them" as that wouldn't assume their gender and ideally would no accidentally piss anyone off. However, Abigail Thorne in one video referred to it as "the coward's 'they'" and that that would take away the femininity that some trans women need/rely on for their identity in society...which...you know, makes sense also.

It's pretty fascinating how language (and society) is evolving around this issue. I guess I'm going to stick with "they/them" until I am told people's preferred pronouns and then use those instead. Until, I suppose, a better solution crops up.

Great episode, as usual. MJ has always been a fascinating guest, so interesting to hear their story.
