Gentle (seriously) reminder that trans/enby/AFAB folks who have been dragged for posting their non-male genders might not be comfortable putting pronouns in their bio
I had this shitty thing happen on Twitter where everytime I started posting trans positive news, I'd get anti-trans stalker/doxing accounts trying to follow me, as well as a couple of run-ins with anti-trans and terf folks. (anti-trans as in generally transphobic, just not explicitly terfy)
It took me several months of being on here for me to be comfortable with posting trans and gender-related info in my bio on here
the cis, the het, the male cishets (bitter) Show more
otoh, if you're in a privileged position (a cis one), and people keep telling you why it's a good idea to disclose...maybe rethink your bad takes
@shoutcacophony For sure! And having to use pronouns at all because EVERYONE MUST DISCLOSE GENDER makes me pretty uncomfortable.
@some_qualia Yeah, I agree. I know why "post your pronouns!" that's a thing, and for people who feel safe doing that, fine, but it can backfire easily. It's also personal, you know?
