Honestly, the author of the article and another staff member of the magazine we spoke to do know ChaosLife, so I have to presume my identity is pretty clear. When I saw “he” in the article, I wasn’t thrown, I was delighted.
Even if I knew that pronoun was coming from a place of unfamiliarity, I would feel pretty hypocritical to insist that pronouns don’t mean much to me (or that I prefer to have them mixed up or simply use “they/them/their”), yet then get tetchy about people using anything other than “she.” While I appreciate the concern, it’s a nice change of pace to see myself referred to as something other than feminine (something that overwhelmingly happens, even in discussions of my agender identification).
Anyway, no, that wasn’t a screw up at all. At least, no more than using “she” would count as for me, personally.
In fact, scratch that: “he” is a little less jarring than “she” in my book, on further thought. Go figure.
