It’s common, when people come out either as queer or as trans* to someone, to get cissexist/transphobic/homophobic reactions.
But when those come from supposedly well-informed people (as in “aren’t you just reinforcing the sex-gender binary?” from so-called feminists) that you love and/or care about, things get a bit more complicated.
How do you react to/answer transphobic/cissexist questions from people in your life that you care about, when you come out to them?

This Sunday’s AI was suggested by Yessenia.
