It Was A Baaaaad Dream

Awake from a dream in which I was trying to sign in at a conference for which I was pre-registered. The desk attendant called me aside and, in hushed tones, told me there was a problem. I didn’t include my preferred pronouns on my registration and they needed them for my credentials.

I said that was ridiculous and unnecessary, that if people had a preference they should make them known but the rest of us should just carry on as before. The attendant started to get very aggressive, even insinuating I would get kicked out if I didn’t comply. So I said fine, it’s she/her.

I finally received my badge upon which my pronouns were listed under my name:

Cathy Hendrix Sheep / Herder
