So, let's get right into it: the name. People have been asking about this nonstop since Wednesday. If Colette is a guy, what should we actually be calling him? Well, my answer remains the same as with any other trans person: whatever they say they want to be called. Where it admittedly gets tricky here, is that he hasn't specified. All we really know is that he's ultimately leaning away from ones that sound similar to his given name. So Collin (and other "Co-" names) are probably right out.

I have a name in mind for him, but I want him to be the one to actually say it. So, Colette is fine for right now, because he's hasn't said not to say it. I realize this probably sounds absurd to some people, but I think it's important not to project how others should transition and let them go at their own pace. I knew a girl who kept her distinctly masculine name several years into her transition because it just meant something to her. I knew a guy who didn't want to start HRT because he didn't want to lose his singing voice from the Testosterone. These people are valid! They are trans even regardless of their circumstances. Whether they don't change their names or don't take homones, their experience is valid.

To go kinda roundabout with all this: all I'm saying is that it's okay to call him Colette for now. As long as you're acknowledging he's a man, that's the important thing. For now, let's just try to be patient and let him announce his own name in time. :)
