I was also mocked for things entirely beyond my control. For years. It probably makes me a little knee jerk on bullying, but I just hate to see it in a community that I thought would be above such behaviors. It doesn’t make me feel particularly safe and welcome.
[ETA] Also, I’ll note that I regularly have students with usual names in my classes and I live in fear of not getting their names correct. It’s a basic dignity thing, to try and listen to someone’s name and get it correct. It’s as critical as respecting their gender or racial identity.
