  1. Actually not a pedantic correction:  

    There's no '-ed' in 'transgender': my identity is not a passive state or something I undergo. Please fix if possible.

  2. PC police

    It is "transgender" individual not "transgendered."

    For example, an object can be "gendered" but a human is just an individual with a "gender."
    Sortof like...oriental =/= asian.

    It may seem inconsequential to some people, but it is a big deal to others. It's nice to just get it right and avoid problems.
