That’s always been my somewhat-baffled response to those who freak out at this sort of thing. You can have whatever opinion you want about your co-worker’s lifestyle choices (or bus driver’s, or hairdresser’s, or whatever), but your opinion is not actually relevant to their life in any way. Do you think anyone’s going to change themselves because Jan in Accounting doesn’t like their pronouns? Being polite to people you disagree with is a pretty basic life skill.
