There isn’t a quick way that will make you effortlessly call him the right pronoun all the time. It takes time to change a six-year pattern. When you do mess up, the best way to approach it is to verbally correct your mistake and not make a big deal out of it (because it is a brain fart). It is also helpful to correct yourself in your thoughts, if you find yourself thinking about the person and mispronouning him in your thoughts.
The most important part of this is knowing that you will inevitably mess up from time to time, and when that happens, don’t voice any excuses for it. Just correct yourself and move on in the sentence.
I will not signal-boost a petition that has language that propogates the idea that any and all trans people fit the narrative of born in the wrong body, or that being trans in itself is a medical/psychological condition for every trans person. I will not leave any trans person desiring hormones or surgeries behind.

After a long period of neglect, I’m going to do a much-needed overhaul of the category pages of the directory, add specific pages compiling resources for trans people of color and for some specific non-binary identities, and revamp the layout. Please pardon the directory’s appearance while it is under construction.

If you consider yourself trans, then yes.
A submission from http://transquat.tumblr.com/
Friends, and friends of iPhone. Hi, my name is Billy. I wrote an iPhone app called TranSquat. In a nutshell, it is a gender neutral bathroom finder that locates bathrooms that are gender free relative to your current location. You can search, add and share safe locations. It was written by and for the trans community. It is powered by data from safe2pee. You can help build the app by downloading and adding locations in your own communities.
On a personal note, I wanted to write an app for the trans community. It is also my fundraising goal to get 3000 downloads to help finance my surgery with Dr. Charles Garammone. So far, I only have 2956 to go. Every download helps.
Even better, if you would like to support this project you can donate to my top surgery fund at:
Any help appreciated.
Finally, if you could share this with others whom might find this app useful and would like to support this project that would be much appreciated too!!! Thanks for reading.
