I definitely want to be part of the change. I think it would be quite hard to be a part of this project and not want to change everybody else.
I think it starts with small changes in people’s attitudes. One thing I’ve noticed I start doing now is when I meet someone new, I don’t just ask their name, I ask their pronouns as well. Because I don’t want to just assume how they identify and also, if it’s not something they’ve been asked before, it can open up the conversation of ‘well if you wanted to, you can change how you identify.’
Then, you know, the ultimate goal of everyone being accepting of everybody else.
