I have a question for better edumucated jezzies. How am I supposed to handle crossdressers? Like...am I supposed to use feminine pronouns when speaking of them or do they still identify as male? If it's different how do I know someone is trans or just cross-dressing? There have been times I didn't exactly know how to react and didn't want to be stupid. I'm trying to learn so if we could keep the flames to char-broil rather than extra crispy that would be nice.
