I am asked by my white,cisgender, heterosexual, male housemate to help him buy some lab supplies with my student ID at my college. I oblige and bust-ass in the middle of my busy day to meet him. I am a transgender half mexican genderqueer, i do not go by my legal name. We proceed to the check out for his precious petri-dishes and test-tubes and I am asked for my student ID number and then my name. I ask if they need my legal name, they say “yes”. With burning cheeks I utter, “unfortunately my name is ——.” My housemate, pays no mind as i humiliate myself with my ultra-shitty name, and goes on picking out things from the free-shelf. He has no idea that the cost of his lab supplies was more than $17 dollars. It was with the additional price of my privacy.
