New term: Defensive misgendering.
When a trans person misgenders a cis person in retaliation for the latter’s cissexist actions, especially wrt invalidating trans people’s genders or experiences of them.
Also retaliatory misgendering, when you respond to a cis person’s misgendering you by misgendering them right back.
I’ll go back and add warnings to my older posts on this, and also use tags. Savior #defensive misgendering if you don’t want to see me deliberately misgender cisfucks.
I’ve had someone suggest I do this to the people at the outpatient program I was in one time. Of course I pretty much see them all saying either “But I’m actually my gender!” or “You’re just as bad as you’re making me out to be!”
I don’t know how productive it is as a weapon, but it does make you feel better.
It’s like shouting “Die Cis Scum”.
Yeah, I’ve heard the, “But misgendering is never okay ever ever ever,” and kind of felt the same way - that it’s different doing it to prove a point to someone who receives the right pronouns all of the time than it is to do it to a trans person just to put them in their place.
