Day 19 Of The Gender Queer Challenge

Yay me! I just caught up with my schedule of posts. Now on to the nineteenth question, What terms in the cisgender, GSM, or trans* community are problematic?

Well things like tray, she-male, trap and he/she leap immediately to mind. I wish I could say these slurs where only used by straight cis people but far too many are used by cis gays and lesbians. Misgendering is very problematic and unfortunately happens even in the trans* community with transsexual separatists delibertly misgendering any one who doesn't meet their criteria for a 'true' transsexual.
