Two timesin the past week, I have been able to tell loved ones that

ASKING ABOUT A TRANS PERSON’S GENITALS IS RUDE, OKAY?

in a polite, firm manner. I proceeded to answer their question anyway because, as my loved ones, my answer did sorta kinda pertain to them—in that they will come and visit me while I recuperate.

But seriously, this urge to “educate the cis people” is ridiculous. It’s taken me almost two years to get to this point where I can say it’s rude to ask. Usually I either dance around the question or answer it in a matter-of-factual manner. I’m pleased to have gotten to the point where I can almost refuse to answer.

However, people shouldn’t be asking this question in the fucking first place.
