A Question to Stop Asking Trans People – Now

“Dear people who are neither my doctor or my lover…”

If you’re cisgender, meaning you identify with the gender you were assigned at birth, you might have some questions about what it means to be transgender.

So how do you find answers? By reading some informative resources written by trans folks? Perhaps watching a video featuring trans people sharing about their experiences?

Or by asking trans people invasive questions?

This comic shuts down one of the worst – and unfortunately, most common – questions that trans people get. It’s an important message to keep in mind.
