What transgendereds call it when you use the right pronouns but which they don't think goes with their latest identity.

When someone states that one is a gender other than one identifies. Misgendering is most common when it comes to transgender individuals, but can happen to cisgender people as well. (Example: Being called "Sir" when "Ma'am" is appropriate, etc...)

Self-inflicted psychological abuse transgender people experience when they attempt to attach pronouns to themselves that do not align with biological reality.
People misgender others when they use someone's "preferred pronoun" when it is obviously not their biological sex. Misgender is to use the wrong English pronoun; "he" and "she" have well defined English meanings. Misgendering people is rude; don't misgender people!
