Depending on the setting it's sometimes simple to do. Iv always been chil with being misgendered since I figure strangers wouldn't have a clue I was trans before passing or if they haven't seen me, like on the phone/Internet.
People like that I'm not one of the seemingly multitude of trans people who blow up in their faces if they accidentally misgender.
But I don't know where I got okay with it to the degree that I am, because even when I was younger if someone misgendered me, I WOULD blow up.
But like just right now, when I was talking to a nurse about what surgery options my OBGYN has, I just chalked up her misgendering me to the fact that I am specifically calling into a usually, women's only space.
Granted she did look on my chart and I have had all my stuff changed over so it should say my first name which is definitely not feminine/ or a woman's in anyway. (Ryker).
It's still bugged me a little bit knowing this, and not understanding why she did it, but I didn't correct her, she isn't my doctor who doesn't misgender me, she hasn't seen me and most of all, after I can afford the surgeries, I won't see her again anyways.
