Now it is correct to refer to her as Chelsea and use female pronouns as a matter of respect.
    I just can't do it until he's living as a woman and doing the required do, including the counseling. I am eager to be respectful, but I want to be correct. For the same reason (Rant: in contrast to school kids these days who call all their female teachers "Mrs." even if they're single, and I don't know why, after 35+ years "Ms." isn't demanded by all women, at least in the workplace), I don't refer to single women by the honorific "Mrs."

    BTW, Greengirl, if you're unfamiliar with this case, which IMO should NOT have been dismissed because many of Jamie Faucon's complaints were legit, one of her issues was her fellow firefighters, including one who had been the best man at her wedding ten years before, was that she was constantly being referred to as "he."

    That was the bogus part of her suit, I thought. You can't expect people you've worked as a man with for ten years to immediately adjust to "she."

    Transgendered firefighter's discrimination case dismissed
