Having pronouns in your bio is important to normalise the practise, not just gor trans people but everybody. If only trans people do it, then it becomes a marker of who is trans, if you all do it then it's just a standard thing.

Trying to move a bank account. Big ol' banner to click on to move it within their bank. Tiny little text to move it elsewhere. Clicked that. Next screen had my "options" which were another big ol' "move it within this bank" and _another_ tiny piece of text saying "call us to move it elsewhere"

I had to give Apple my phone number on my work laptop (MacBook) so I could enable a system for testing at work.
For some reason, they then silently set up iMessage on that machine. I have no other Apple products. My parents do.

That is so fucking disgusting and scary.
