Whoever the reporter is who wrote this story erred in their choice of wording. Noone "Chooses" their gender! You find it's either right for your body or wrong. Life can be hell if your brain structures are incorrect and you go through life mismatched. That's it in a nutshell! That's why Transexuals spend so much time and money correcting this situation.

Sad isn't it? And AP wrote the stylebook that says a reporter should respect a person's real gender, not necessarily the one they were born with.

Sadly we are still a small and fairly unknown group. Yesterday I had a Gay friend asking me questions and getting pronouns wrong. I dont think that he or this writer were doing it purposely. I think its just new to people and their brians arent used to catching it.

In my experience, Gays are really good at "Wrong Pronouns". Gays tend to see us as at some kind of erotic games they don't understand. We're still male to them or female as the case may be. Most can't wrap their minds around the gender VS sexual attraction aspects. They think it's all about sex.

This article is typical of the pathetic journalism that too many media outlets still practice. The only way to combat it is to send the offending journalist a note respectfully informing him that his bias was obvious and not appreciated.

I envy that little girl, she will have a much easier time in her life than many. Good for her and good for her wonderful parents!

He never got my pronoun wrong where he got it wrong was hypothetical things he kept mixing up FTM and MTF's. Most of the gay people i hang out with now do Try. I know there is animosity between gay and transexuals in some areas but here we seem to be fairly united.
