Bot of the day corrects your misgendered pronouns
Caitlyn Jenner announced her transition in the pages and on the cover of Vanity Fair. She asks simply that one refers to her as she, and that you call her by her new chosen name with the hashtag #CallMeCaitlyn. However, it seems that some dummies can’t get with the program.
To prevent the rest of us from going hoarse in correcting those who can’t and don’t get it there’s a bot out there to do the work for us. @she_not_he is a Twitter bot that "politely [corrects] Twitter users who misgender Caitlyn Jenner in their tweets."

That being said, Twitter and the world at large seem to be hugely supportive of Caitlyn's journey. Let's hope that her exposure, and bots like @she_not_he can help create broader understanding and support for other trans people who may not have the same access to medical care and platforms that Caitlyn does.
