- "biologically ___"
- "they isn’t grammatically correct"
- "comfortable in your body/gender"
since this got a lot of notes and i received a few asks about what some of these meant, here’s the…
The -ed at the end is not wrong. There are many adjectives in English that end with -ed without indicated that the object’s current state was imposed on them by an outside force, such as ‘long-legged’ and ‘red-haired.’ While calling yourself ‘transgender’ is fine if that is the label you prefer, it is not and never has been the grammatically correct option according to modern English.
— signed, a transgendered man.

No problem. This has kind of been a pet issue of mine ever since I saw someone get dogpiled for publicly stating that some people prefer the -ed. They didn’t even go into the grammar of it, they just said some people have a preference for it. And a bunch of so-called ‘activists” spammed their inbox with rude messages and threats.
That’s not okay.
