Womanhood and Choice — and the Gender Critical Woman Trap

Hi. I’m a cis woman, pronouns she/her.

Easy, right?

Except it’s not. I don’t actually mind pronouns he/him. I don’t mind being called sir.

But don’t use they/them, please. (Why do I get dysphoria from they/them and not he/him? I have no idea, but I know I’m not the only one).
