I enjoy talking to my mom and having her call me a good son and deadname me. /s
@ascclemens It's ultimately up to you to decide the extent to which you want to bear the burden of other people's bigotry, but personally I took a zero-tolerance approach to it, no exceptions made for family. I don't think it's worth the pain; you aren't obligated to compromise with them, and you don't deserve to suffer through it. (forgive me if you were just venting into the void, and didn't want unsolicited input)
@ataraxie99 I don't know, it's just frustrating. She doesn't do it maliciously, but it doesn't make it less annoying.
