Misgendering

From Nonbinary Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The term misgendering means referring to somebody as if they had another gender identity. For example, using the he/him pronouns for a woman or the she/her pronouns for a nonbinary person who uses inclusive or nounself pronouns. This is one method transphobes can attack transgender and nonbinary people.

Unintentional Usage[edit | edit source]

It is common for someone to assume another person's gender identity based on parts of their gender expression, such as their voice, hair length or style, and clothing.
