Old Pronoun

Someone wrote…

I flinch every time my family uses my old pronoun, which happens like five times a day. Every single time. I’ve gotta stop that but I don’t know how to have that conversation and I know they’ll complain. I don’t know if I can deal with that. But I can’t deal with this either.

I think they try to be supportive of me, or they wanna be supportive, but they’re bad at it, basically. I wish they were better.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
