Oh for heavens sake. Whoopi Goldberg's real name is Caryn Johnson, but who calls her Caryn? Woody Allen's real name is Allan Konigsberg. Bruno Mars is actually named Peter Hernendez. Miley Cyrus? Destiny Cyrus. Everybody on this earth calls people by their preferred name but for some reason you draw the line at transgender people to make some type of point? Unbelievable.

He still has a penis so he is still Bruce.

Neither science nor magic can ever make him a woman - it's in your DNA. So it's Bruce.

Caitlyn. I try to show very basic human decency and address people by their name, even if that's not the name given on their birth certificate. Just as if you were born "John" and you introduced yourself to me as "Jack," I'm not going to rudely insist on calling you "John" every opportunity I get.

If you're born with the name Matthew and go by Matt, you should only be called Matthew. It's the way God intended it.

It would be extremely disrespectful to Matthew's parents to call him "Matt."

This is an actual argument someone gave me once in support of refusing to call people the name they want to be called.

That's sad. The right wing will stand for any argument that allows them to focus on hate.

It's not hate to call them by their legally given name. If a person told you to address them as Jumpin' Jabberwocky, would you honestly do it? No

As a parent, call my kids what they want to be called. I gave them each 3 perfectly good names for a reason, and most of those names have nicknames. If they decided something else was better I'd be a little sad because I love their names, but it is what they live with so it's their choice.

Caitlyn, but this is a non-issue.

Damn, is this really that hard? Her name is legally Caitlyn. End of story.
