One of my oldest friends has had a significant amount of trouble adjusting to using different names & pronouns with me. He’s super accepting but he cares very little about using the right names/pronouns cause he’d rather just focus on regular hang-out-stuff. I let him get away with it because we’ve been friends for like…almost 15 years? And he’s legitimately like a brother to me.
So yesterday when we met up after he was done work and he introduced me to one of his coworkers, I was pretty nervous/building up some anger for what I expected would be a barrage of “shes” and “birth names,” but without skipping a beat he was like “This is my friend Jamie!”
Then on the drive home he talked about a story he “read in GQ” about Fallon Fox I believe, and then asked how he should talk about me in the past.
It was really nice to hear this stuff from him because I was starting to get annoyed; I came out to him almost 2 years ago and he’s barely made an effort since then. But hearing him be genuinely interested in how to make me feel more comfortable was probably the best way to end a super long & stressful day of moving.
There exists a photo of me acting grumpy whilst wearing a Finn from Adventure Time hat and a Free Chelsea Manning shirt.
This is the life I live.
