Irony: Bob Ferguson's LGBT-focused re-election campaign mailings very explicitly deadnaming me.

Want to support LGBT people? maybe *don't use my pre-transition name in mailings*

I don't even know why they'd have that name on their list, I changed it years ago

Hey supporting LGBT people means more than just paying lip service to gay rights. It rings really hollow when I, a trans person, am being aggressively deadnamed in your re-election campaign mailings which are written to seem like you're reaching out personally.

So like I don't know where the folks are getting their mailing list from but I legally changed my name 4 years ago and have been registered to vote under my new name all that time, and I really don't appreciate this message written assuming I'm cis-het.
