You use their name just as you would anyone else.
As for that "Christian" person's comments. If you want to take about lack of morals how about looking at the many things religions, and those "practicing them, have been responsible for doing to society and people, like molestations aka rape of children?
Alays makes me laugh when someone plays the religious moral card since when one really learns about the bible, reading the oldest one ion the world, one would learn that Jesus had other siblings, brothers and sisters including older ones. That in the original text no one suggests that Mary was a virgin when Jesus was born.
That the "Christian" religion was bastardized from the true teachings of what Jesus had wanted. Do your own history research bub, learn what is in the oldest bible before you speak.
Now back to the topic.
Tranny, a part of an automobile.
How do you tell the person's core gender, well don't you normally learn a person's name? If their name is Jane well then its clear isn't it?
And how many people refer to the person they are speaking to with pronouns? ( "So her what do you want to do tonight?")
So why not just take people at face value and give anyone the same respect you would ask for. You can't always tell a person who is transexual just because you think you can.
Transgender, any person who transgresses how society sees as typical gender behaviour. That can include people who sleep with others of the same sex/L&G, people who sleep with people of either sex/B, people who cross dress (years back women wearing pants fit this. Oh except in Scottish men apparently), people who don't feel they are either gender, people who use the term transvestite(yes there are some out there I've met them),people who are L,B or G with a transexual medical background, people who are gender benders, drag kings and drag queens and so many more.
