It might not seem like much to the cis, but when I'm dealing with so many other microaggressions around gender, I'm not going to ask a question of a speaker and open myself up to yet another one. It's so so easy to just... not say those things.
So all in all, I don't end up raising my hand to ask a question of speakers. I don't end up going to in-person networking events, and if I do, I don't make many connections. And like... one of the major purposes of #CSUNATC19 is networking! But not for trans folks, I guess.
