Quick Template for Correcting Teachers on Your Pronouns via Email

I just sent off an email to my teacher reminding her about my pronouns and I thought it sounded professional enough, so I thought I’d leave it here for anyone who has trouble with that sort of thing. Make sure to replace my pronouns and terms (written here in caps so you can find them easily) with your own. I am gender fluid, so if your gender is static, be sure to edit this to reflect that.

(It’s a good idea in general to include your name, class, and the day your class meets as the subject line in any email to your teachers. Your professors have a LOT of students.)

From: Me

Subject: NIKKI’s Pronouns (SOC-121-4137, T/TH CLASS)

PROFESSOR,

On THURSDAY I noticed you used “SHE/HER” pronouns to refer to me several times, so I just wanted to remind you that my pronouns are “THEY/THEM/THEIR/THEIRS/THEIRSELF.” This is the case even when I am presenting FEMININELY. Due to my situation at home, I do not have access to a CHEST BINDER and cannot always present as the gender I am at any given time, so it is important not to assume my gender based on the way I am dressed. Having people use THEY/THEM pronouns helps to relieve some of my social dysphoria when my physical dysphoria cannot be avoided.

If you would like some examples of how to use these pronouns for a single person, there is a wonderful site at http://www.pronouns.failedslacker.com that allows you to type in a name, pronouns, and gender (boy/girl/person/etc; I prefer the term “PERSON”) and then read excerpts of stories using those pronouns. My pronouns are conjugated in the PLURAL, like you normally would with THEY/THEM pronouns.

Thanks,

Nikki

I’m a little upset, I got confused when everyone left and thought the NCAS meeting was over and so I promised Emily I’d cover her shift so she could go to the fair? And I just found out that no, I’m just an idiot and there’s still another tour from 2 - 4:30. But I already promised so I can’t go.

On point today.

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

Is there a word for people who experience attraction to only one gender, but that gender is not the same as their own nor is it the conventional “opposite” (say, an agender person who is only attracted to girls, or vice versa)? I feel like “heterosexual” isn’t quite right here. Technically it fits, but the connotation of “boy who likes girls or girl who likes boys” is extremely strong and I feel like straying from that is still a queer identity that shouldn’t be bound by the “heterosexual” label =/ Google provided no results so I’m asking here.

Coming soon to a MY BASS COLLECTION near you.

I also learned that if I’m a few seconds late, it’s more beneficial to my education to walk back down three flights of stairs, wait in line for a tardy slip, walk all the way back up three flights of stairs, sign in on the classroom’s tardy log, and interrupt the teacher to give them my tardy slip than it is to just walk into class 15 seconds after the bell rings.
