#LGBTeach Twitter Chat Highlights!

I love these Tweet Chats. Today we were talking about LGBTQ inclusion in curriculum.

  1. LGBTeach is a twitter chat led by Jessica Lifshitz addressing issues of gender and sexual diversity in schools.
  2. I forgot to mention this because this is very important if you're student and even in some of the work places. If you see this "safe zone" logo that look like this or something similar to this on your professors or teachers door. They are the people who you can trust to go to seek help or just to talk to. They are train and council for #lgbtqiapd students and even some employees that are non academia depending on what is your state guildlines. Louisiana and Texas doesn't protect lgbt. They have the right to fire you for being out! Which is wrong that is why we fighting for #equality #safezone #lgbteach #lgbtpride #lgbtcommunite #prideflags #marriageequality #noh8 #fckh8 #stoph8

Yes the wrong pronouns are disrespectful. But they are also something huge for someone who doesn't go by the pronouns that people assume they go by. For me when people use female pronouns it bothers me quit a bit, and I don't correct people because I don't want to seem like an annoyance. But the wrong pronouns can also break you down and make you feel like absolute shit. And some days that how I feel... But I still don't tell anyone... I read Damien's suicide note, he was a trans boy, who is not with us anymore because of people misgendering him. I'm not saying that's the only reason but that's a large part of it And I honestly don't want to say anything else about that because there's nothing I can say to explain how much this hurts me so I'm going to leave that at that. What I do want to say, is that you should always ask people what their preferred pronouns are, and if someone asks you to refer to them as different pronouns that you already do then respect their wishes and just do it... Because it hurts like hell to have people calling you a she when you aren't one. {#hisnamewaszander #hisnamewasdamien #hernamewasleelah #ana #alone #anger  #pain #love #lonely #pain #suicidal #selfhate #suicide #trans #gender #sexuality #lgbt #emo #scene #punk #music #lyrics #gore #blood #bleed #bleeding #gory #genderneutral #genderfluid #transgender #lgbt}
