#*Recognize that being cisgender means that you avoid a lot of issues that transgender people have no choice but to face. At the same time, cisgender people are not  expected to change their own habits in order to accommodate transgender preferences.  For example, a transgender boy who has been granted the right to use the boys' bathroom cannot object to the sight of a cisgender boy peeing in a urinal.

#Speak up if you hear transphobic statements. Be a good ally and stand up for transgender people. If you hear someone putting down someone in your life, speak up and say that you respect that person and don't want to hear them insulted. If someone uses a slur or makes a joke or a prejudicial statement about gender-nonconforming people, tell them you are offended.<ref>https://www.glaad.org/transgender/allies</ref>[[Image:Respect a Transgender Person Step 10 Version 2.jpg|center]]
