daryl-banks-photographer-108Daryl Banks, a man who thinks he’s a woman, discussed here and here, recently attempted to call the police because a lesbian in the United States called him a man.  According to Banks, the Toronto Police doubted his name was Sophia. Banks’ case demonstrates that “misgendering,” whereby people use “the wrong pronoun” or otherwise correctly identify your birth sex, is not a criminal offense.
