I'm a French transgender female who started her transition a few months ago. For now, only my friends and family know about my status. I'm not legally a female and I still look and sound like a man.
However, I want to change jobs and thus have began to send my résumé right and left but gendered as masculine. I did so because I didn't want to be a victim of discrimination.
A recruiter phoned me and we have agreed on an interview date. They called me "Sir" during the phone conversation (which is logical, since I wrote on my résumé that I'm male).
The thing is: I don't want to be mis-gendered anymore, and think that it's not worth to work for someone who wouldn't respect this.
Should I keep with the masculine pronouns until signing my contract or should I tell them upfront during the interview?
I'm aware that this kind of question has already been answered here, but my question differs in the sense that she has NOT initiated any contact before, while I DID. The recruitment process has already begun and they already started to call me "Sir", whereas in the other question, no contact has been made. This question is "how to fix" while the other is "how not to break". Also, I'm not in the UK, so those laws do not apply.
