A very accurate and timely twitter thread. 👌
Remember everyone’s experience of being trans is unique to them—these are great guidelines for people you don’t know, but if you know someone who is trans, talk to them about their preferences and needs.

just beheld an innocent cashier oops
so i'm at petsmart paying the invoice for my cat's nail trim, and the cashier is staring at me as he taps in the phone number. it brings up my mom's name and i kind of wanted to assure him my name wasn't carolyn so i went "haha, that's my mother. motheeeer." in what was apparently a distinctive and recognizable voice because he went, "you know, that's so weird, because i was just thinking i'm gonna watch all the toy story movies tonight. how did you know that?"
i don't even know that reference because i haven't seen all the toy story movies and it's been years anyway, so i definitely didn't know that but i'm just here like, "haha oh, yeah, i'm a little psychic, sorry." just a laugh y'know little things can be brushed off.
but he goes, "what color am i thinking of?"
in my head i'm immediately like purple but i tend to second guess myself so i went "uhh, hm. green." and he went "nope, close," and despite it not being anywhere close to green i just went, "oh, so it WAS purple."
and he FREEZES. and he's like. "...it was green first but i changed it to purple."
so i'm like "...i thought purple first and changed it to green. nice."
so that was apparently him trying to dodge my psychic beam and me trying to spare him but we intersected anyway. my jimmies are thoroughly rustled by this point.
but then he's like, "alright, what number am i thinking of between 1-10."
i don't hesitate this time before i look him in the eyes and say, "3. or 4, i guess." because again i always just give an additional option just in case usually to deter suspicion which. didn't work because he got so quiet and shrank a little like "...it was 3. i don't think i like this game anymore."
i can't stop laughing this was so fucking weird. just triple read a random dude's mind at petsmart wyd
