Misgendering is when someone accidentally or deliberately refers to a person with the wrong gender pronoun. It can happen to cisgender and transgender people.

Referring to a trans woman as “he” saying “him” or “his” or a trans man as a “she” or “her” is misgendering.

It is considered deeply offensive to some trans people – especially if the misgendering is done with malice or deliberately.
